Please note that organized transportation back to Pescara on Friday after the closure of the meeting has not been arranged. For those who will travel to Rome on Friday, please note you might get train/bus directly from Chieti Scalo which is closer to the meeting venue than Pescara.


How to get to Pescara/Chieti

The best way to get to either Chieti or Pescara is to fly to Rome and take a bus which departs straight from Fiumicino airport or Ciampino airport. Viable options are for example Prontobus or Flixbus, whichever fits better for your flight time. Train is another possibility but it is in general slower than the bus.

There is also an airport in Pescara so it is possible to reach Pescara with combination of flights. However, the airport is not well connected, therefore it is almost always better to fly to Rome and take the bus.


For accommodation we suggest that participants choose one of the hotels in the central area of Pescara within walking distance from the bus station (see the map below).
