The meeting venue can be reached as follows.
- By plane to the Roma Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino airport (FCO), and from there using the meeting bus transportation (see below for details).

- By train to Piombino Marittima, and from there by ferry-boat to Portoferraio. A meeting shuttle will be available upon request to transport the participants to the meeting site from the Portoferraio harbour.
