How to reach LNGS

Here you can find some information on how to reach LNGS and/or L'Aquila.

LNGS is located inside the Gran Sasso-Laga National Park (Google map), about 120 kilometers north-east from Rome. The lab is very close to the city of L’Aquila, the capital of the Abruzzo region, that was founded in 13th century. The history of the region is a fascinating blend of tradition and legends. The territory hosts a unique natural environment with rare species of flora and fauna as well as architectural and archaeological sites.

Drivers can take highway A24 from Rome or Teramo. Take the exit "L'Aquila East" or "L'Aquila West" to get to L'Aquila or the exit "Assergi" to reach the lab: at the toll gate turn right and after 100 meters turn right again (via Giovanni Acitelli), you will find the laboratory entrance on your left.

All people landing in Fiumicino or Ciampino can take a Gaspari or Flixbus direct bus from airports to L’Aquila (final bus stop Amiternum bus station).

People may also take TUA-ABRUZZO buses from Rome (Tiburtina train station) to L’Aquila.
First bus stop in L’Aquila is Amiternum bus station (same as Gaspari bus above) and final stop is Collemaggio Bus Terminal (located in the city center).

Taxi cabs are normally available at Amiternum bus station, if needed you can call the local radio-taxi service +39 0862 25165.
