Bus transfer will be available on Sunday April 19 from airports Rome Fiumicino (FCO) and Rome Ciampino (CIA) and from L’Aquila to affiliated hotels as well as return bus at the end of conference from LNGS to L’Aquila and Rome airports. Timetable will be published after registration closing. Daily shuttle buses from affiliated hotels to conference venue will be provided (please find below the list of affliated hotels).
Here you can find some information on how to reach LNGS independently (e.g. if the shuttle bus timetable doesn’t fit with participants’ travel plans).
The Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) is located inside the Gran Sasso-Laga National Park (Google map), about 120 kilometers north-east from Rome. Drivers can take highway A24 from Rome and take the exit Assergi: at the toll gate turn right and after 100 meters turn right again (via Giovanni Acitelli), you will find the laboratory entrance door on your left.
All people landing in Fiumicino or Ciampino can take a Gaspari direct bus from airports to L’Aquila (final bus stop Hotel Amiternum). Gaspari routes timetable and fare information are available on the company website.
Taxi cabs are normally available at Hotel Amiternum, if needed you can call the local radio-taxi service +39 0862 25165.
Participants may also take TUA-ABRUZZO buses from Rome (Tiburtina train station) to L’Aquila (timetable). First bus stop in L’Aquila is Hotel Amiternum (same as Gaspari bus above). Once there, either you can take a taxi to LNGS (as above) or you can get off at Collemaggio Terminal Bus (final bus stop) and take city bus M6 to Assergi (timetable).
