Getting to San Pietro in Bevagna

The Brindisi – Salento Airport is approximately 50 km from the meeting venue. A shuttle bus service from the airport to Hotel dei Bizantini will be organized for the arrival and departure days (15 and 19 June 2016, respectively). To facilitate the organization of the shuttle bus, all participants must send their travel plans to the meeting Secretariat beforehand.

Alternatively, there are many car rental agencies at Brindisi – Salento Airport. Due to the high demand for cars during the summer season, early reservation is strongly recommended.

Bari Airport is 140 km from the meeting venue. Participants arriving at or departing from Bari Airport are strongly advised to rent a car, because public transportation is only available a few times a day. For further information, please contact the meeting Secretariat. Shuttle buses may be organized from Bari Airport by the Secretariat if a significant number of participants will be arriving at the airport at similar times.

Please note that the Brindisi and Bari airports are connected to various European cities by two low-cost airlines: Ryanair and EasyJet.
