Meeting transportation

You can reach the Conference venue in the following ways:

  • By plane to Pisa or Rome airports, and then using the meeting buses provided.
  • By train to Piombino Marittima, ferry-boat to Portoferraio. A meeting shuttle will be available upon request to connect participants to the meeting site from the Portoferraio harbour.
  • By car to Piombino, ferry-boat to Portoferraio, a short drive to La Biodola (10km). Since parking is limited at the Hotel Hermitage, we encourage participants to use the meeting buses as much as possible.
