How to reach Rome:

By plane
If you come by plane, there are several options. One option is to book a flight to Rome Fiumicino (FCO); a second option is to flight to Rome Ciampino (CIA). We suggest flighting to Rome Fiumicino airport because it has a better organization and services such as a direct shuttle to Rome Termini (Leonardo Express) and a regular train service.

By train
Rome is reachable by train from everywhere in Europe. The timetable of trains is available online at Tickets can be bought online at, as well. This online booking system is very efficient and easy to use.

The main train station is called "Roma Termini" which is at walking distance from the conference location.

Point (A): Termini station, Piazza dei Cinquecento, 1
Point (B): Palazzo Barberini, “Circolo Ufficiali delle Forze Armate D'Italia” , via delle Quattro fontane, 13, which is the location of the “Italian Armed Forces Lounge for Officers”.


Just right out of the station (Piazza dei Cinquecento) there is a taxi station. The only authorized taxes in Italy are those that have a clear sign “TAXI” on top of the car.


All the others are not official and must not be used. It would be possible to use the metro system to reach the conference venue, even though, because of the short distance, it is not convenient to use this way from Termini.

By (underground) metro
Using the metro system is instead very convenient to reach the venue from elsewhere. Rome has two METRO lines: Line A and Line B. The closest stop to the conference venue is METRO A – “Barberini”.

Tips when riding taxes in Italia and Rome in particular.
Please note that in the train stations there are yellow machines for validating tickets. Tickets need to be punched before boarding the first train of the trip.

If you use the metro system, you need a metro ticket (1 euro) which can be bought in all the stations (procedure: 1. select the language, 2. select the number of tickets that you want to buy, 3. put the cash (the machine gives change), wait a while, take tickets; be aware of the fact that there will be people begging for money in the area).

A 1 euro ticket can be used only once to enter metro stations. However, the same ticket can be used for riding every bus/train in the city for 75 minutes.
