			HOW TO GET TO BERGAMO

Milano Linate and Milano Malpensa are the closest International airports.
Bergamo is about 30 miles away from Milan.
- If you arrive at MILANO LINATE take the bus to "Milano Centrale" Station;
 the bus leaves every 20 minutes and takes 15 minutes to arrive at the
 station.
- If you arrive at MILANO MALPENSA take the bus to "Milano Centrale"
 Station; the bus leaves every half an hour and takes almost an hour to
 arrive at the station.
- From MILANO CENTRALE there are some trains to Bergamo. Otherwise, take the
 Metro from Centrale to Milano Porta Garibaldi Station (two stops on the
 Green line); here you find many trains (one per hour) to Bergamo. Some
 trains go directly from Milan to Bergamo, others stop in Carnate Usmate,
 where you have to get a connection train to Bergamo.

- From VENICE (or PADUA): take a train going toward Milan and get off in
 Brescia. Take the first train to Bergamo (50 minutes).
- There is a small airport in Bergamo: Orio al Serio. Check at your travel
 agency whether there are connecting flights which might be useful to you.
- ONCE IN BERGAMO: the conference site is in BERGAMO ALTA (the ancient
 town). Buy a bus ticket (about $1), take the bus number 1 to the
 "funicolare" and then with the same ticket you can take the funicular to
 the top.
