Travel and accommodation

Lodging for students and travel issues are managed by the AISF organizers (Hotel Castello in L'Aquila was reserved for the students by the way). Students can contact AISF in order to get proper detailed information.

Nevertheless here below you can find some information on how to reach L'Aquila and Assergi independently by train or coach or by car. You can find more logistics and travel information on LNGS webpage or in the GSSI travel instructions.


The ARPA company provides daily bus routes from Rome to L'Aquila. Each bus route leaves from Tiburtina railway station. Timetable is available on ARPA homepage or here.
IMPORTANT: we strongly suggest students to take these ARPA buses if possible, since final bus stop in L'Aquila is the bus terminal which is really close to the reserved hotel as well as city center and GSSI.

Furthermore here you can check the website of National railway company where you can find trains from Fiumicino airport to Tiburtina railway station in Rome.

The Gaspari company provides daily bus routes from Fiumicino and Ciampino airport to L'Aquila and back. Please note that final bus stop in L'Aquila is the Hotel Amiternum (pretty far from the city center, taxi is available anyway).


Please also find here a list of restaurants and pubs in L'Aquila downtown. They are all pretty close to Hotel Castello and GSSI.
