Pisa has an international airport with daily flights to London and Munich, as well as to Rome, Milan, and other important Italian cities. The timetable of incoming and outgoing flights is available at the website of Pisa airport. The airport is on the outskirts of the town, approximately 3 km from the center. The most convenient way to reach the center is probably by taxi. Taxis are located near the “Arrivals” exit of the terminal. If there is no taxi out there, you may call the non-stop radio taxi service by dialing +39 050 541600. As an alternative, take the city bus “LAM Rossa” and get off at Piazza della Stazione (Railway Station square), which is the hub of all buses.
Pisa's railway station is on the line from Turin to Rome. There are many connections also with Florence. The train schedule is available at the website of Trenitalia. Recall that in Italy, before getting on the train, you must stamp your ticket by using those small yellow machines available within the station.
Pisa is near the intersection of two highways: A12 north-south (Sestri Levante - Livorno) and A11 east-west (Pisa - Florence). Pisa is also connected to Florence through the freeway called SGC Fi-Pi-Li (Strada di Grande Comunicazione). If you arrive from the north-south direction, exit at “Pisa Centro” of the A12. If you arrive from the east direction, exit either at the “Pisa Nord” of A11 or take the A12 connection and exit at “Pisa Centro”. If you arrive from the east through SGC Fi-Pi-Li exit at “Pisa Nord-Est”. Please note that Pisa is a small town with several pedestrian areas. Parking is a bit of a problem and most parking areas are with pay-meters. Consider parking in one of the car parks outside the city center and to reach the conference venues by bus or taxi. At the end of the page you can find the position of the free parking lot in Pisa.
