 HOW TO GET TO SIENA

 FROM THE AIRPORTS
 The closest Airports are Pisa and Florence.
 
 If you arrive at Pisa Airport, get the train directly from the Airport,
change train at Empoli and take a train bound to Siena. You can check the
on-line train schedule at the following web page:
 
 http://www.fs-on-line.com
 
 If you arrive at Florence Airport, you need to take a local bus from the
Airport to the main train station (S. Maria Novella). 
 See the next section on how to go to Siena from S. Maria Novella.
 
 FROM FLORENCE
 From Florence you can either take a train to Siena (in that case, check
the on line schedule at the web page given above) or take a bus. The second
option is the best, because buses are faster and more frequent. Also, buses
arrive in Siena city centre (where the conference is), whereas the train
station is pretty far away from the centre of Siena.
 The bus station in Florence is next to the main train station (S. Maria
Novella). Make sure that you take a fast bus (ask for "Corsa Rapida"). The
bus takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to Siena.
 These are the departure time of "corse rapide" from Florence:
 6,45 
 7,15

 FROM NORTHERN ITALY
 You should reach Florence by train (again, check the schedule at web page
indicated above) and from Florence you get to Siena following the
 suggestions in the previous section.
 
 FROM ROME
 You can reach Siena by train (again, check the schedule at the web page
indicated above) or by bus. Buses leave from the train station Tiburtina.
Tiburtina is not the main train station in Rome, but it is pretty
 convenient because there are trains from Rome Airport Leonardo da Vinci to
Tiburtina.
 These are the departure time of buses from Rome:
 
 7,00
 10,30
 12,00
 14,00
 15,30
 18,00
 20,00
 
 The bus takes approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes. Infoline for buses:
 167 514633
 
 
WHERE TO STAY

http://www.comune.siena.it/
 
The following hotels are among the ones that are located in the central
area of the city. We indicate the approximate price for a single room.

possible. Tel. 0577 52212

Finally, you can book through "Siena Prenotazioni Alberghiere" service. The
number is: 0577 288084

HOW TO GET TO THE CONFERENCE 
The conference site is in the city centre (Facolta' di Lettere in Via Roma
47). Reaching Facolta' di Lettere from Piazza del Campo takes approximately
10 minutes walking. From Piazza del Campo take "Via Banchi di Sotto" and go
straight. Via Banchi di Sotto first changes its name in Via Pantaneto and
finally becomes Via Roma.
 
 
IMPORTANT TIP 
Keep in mind that, if you phone from outside Italy, you need to dial the
entire area code for Siena 0577 (including the zero) after the country code
for Italy. The area code is also necessary when you make a local call.
