CONFERENCE VENUE

The conference venue is the Aula Magna of Scuola Galileiana, in via San Massimo 33.



The social dinner will be held on Thursday 21 December at Caffè Pedrocchi, via VIII Febbraio 15.




Reaching the CONFERENCE VENUE from the TRAIN STATION/BUS TERMINAL

Take "urbano" bus n. 6, 14 or 24 and get off at the "Giustiniani Pronto Soccorso" stop. Here is a useful live timetable with an interactive map.

You may also get either one of the E001, E002, E003, E004, E005 "extraurbano" buses and get off at the "via Falloppio" stop (just before "Ospedale").

If you prefer to walk, estimate about 25'.

If you are coming directly from the Venezia airport, recall that the Busitalia bus from the airport stops (on demand) in via Venezia ("Fiat Padova" stop) before reaching the terminal; this is just a 10-15' walk away from the conference venue.

Reaching Padova by PLANE

The nearest airport is Marco Polo Airport in Venezia, 40 km east of Padova; it is the third in importance in Italy, and conveniently linked with all major European airports. Other airports near Padova are in TrevisoVerona and Bologna; but the transfer from there to Padova is not an easy one.

From the Venezia airport you have the following options to reach Padova:
  • Frequent bus connections by SITA - Busitalia (70 minutes ride as it also stops in Venezia Piazzale Roma). The bus stop is just outside the airport and the timetable can be found here. The bus terminal in Padova is next to the railway station. The fare is 8,5 Euros, tickets can be bought at the airport or on the bus with a small extra charge.
  • Bus + train service - Route 15 of the local Venetian ACTV bus service offers a bus every 30 minutes from the airport to Venezia-Mestre railway station (20 minutes ride). From Venezia-Mestre there are 2 or 3 trains per hour to Padova (20-30 minutes ride).
  • The shuttle minibus Air Service (Reservation by e-mail or by tel. +39-049-8704425 or by the website). Please note that the reservation must be made at least 24 hours before your arrival, indicating date, time and flight number. Fare: 35 Euros per person to Padova; since it is a collective service the cost per person can be lower if the reservation is made for two or more persons.
  • The Limousine Service Landomas (Reservation via e-mail or by tel. +39-049-8600382 or by the website). Please note that the reservation must be made at least 24 hours before your arrival, indicating date, time and flight number. Fare: about 31 Euros per person to Padova; since it is a collective service the cost per person can be lower if the reservation is made for two or more persons, see here.
  • Taxi - There is also a Radiotaxi service (Tel. +39-041-5964) for a direct transfer from airport to Padova, howewer this is by far the most expensive solution.


Reaching Padova by TRAIN 

Padova is both on the Venezia-Milano-Torino and on the Venezia-Roma lines. Many trains are available, check the Trenitalia or the Italo websites.
