Cloister, Faculty of Engineering (Facolta di Ingegneria), but better known (if you need to ask someone for the way to) as St Pietro in Vincoli (St Peter in Chains) building (attached to the church under the same name), Address: Via Eudossiana 18.
Map of the Conference Rooms
A map of the area with most of the hotels in which the THMT09 participants will be staying, is attached below. The nearest metro stations are Colosseo and Cavour (metro line B).
Suggestions for transportation from and to airports
- Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci): direct express train from the airport train station (after passing through custom, follow the sign "Train Station") to the central train station Termini, departing every 15 or 20 minutes; duration: 30 minutes; tickets (11 €) to be purchased in the train station - a small ticket box or the newspaper shop - both easily found as this is a small station with only 3 platforms.
- Ciampino: (services some low-rate airlines): there is a shuttle bus leaving every 45 minutes to the central train station. Tickets can be purchased in the bus.
Reaching your hotel
Map of the Conference Venue and hotels
All hotels recommended are on a walking distance from Termini (see Termini in the upper right corner in the attached map!) if you do not have large luggage. Otherwise, take a taxi (use only WHITE official taxies with visible Taxi sign and number) or, for some hotels, use metro to Cavour (next stop) or Colosseo (second stop); get a ticket from a machine, €1.0 for one ride (incidentally, valid also for buses and trams within 75 minutes, very convenient for moving through Rome if you know which bus/tram or metro to take.)
All participants are invited to the THMT Welcome Cocktail, Sunday 13 September, 18.00-20.00 hr, Courtyard ("Cloister") of the Faculty building.
