Travel, Accomodation and Venue info

June is full of events in Pisa, including the Saint Patron's festivities (San Ranieri) with the Luminara on the night of June 16 (see picture). Book in advance and if you can, plan to stay in Pisa for the night of the 16. It is a lot of confusion, but absolutely worth it!


The conference will be hosted in the Aula magna of the Scuola Superiore S. Anna, piazza Martiri della Liberta, 33, Pisa.

The Scuola can be easily reached from the airport or the railway station (in the above map, on the left side, it is approx 1cm=150mt).

Once you are in the surroundings, the entrance is from Piazza Martiri della Liberta.

The conference sessions will be in the Aula Magna.


Pisa has a large international airport. For info click here.
The trenitalia web site (train tickets) can be found here.
You can find detailed travel info on how to get to Pisa and the Scuola here.


Some hotels gave a prearranged rate for conference attendees, but there is no reserved block of rooms. Therefore, please book as soon as you know that you will be attending the conference. Also, you can may want to check availability and alternate rates on or by directly calling the Hotels.

A presentation with additional Travel tips

This presentation was shown at SIES 2013 in Porto to introduce Pisa with some travel tips (and a lot of stereotypes). Most pictures inside it are taken from the web. Even if I believe they can be used free of charge, I do not own them, please do not distribute.
