The meeting will take place in the auditorium of the INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte, Naples 

Naples can be easily reached by plane and/or railway (it is well connected with Rome or Milan by high speed trains). Both the airport and the railway stations are close to the Capodimonte Observatory (10-15 minutes by car).

How to reach the Observatory:

The address of the Observatory is the following:
INAF - Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte,
Salita Moiariello 16 - 80131, Napoli.
Tel. +39-081-5575-111

From the airport:

The easiest way is to take a taxi, which should take 15 to 20 minutes in standard traffic conditions and typically cost around 20 euros. It is also possible to agree in advance with the taxi driver for a fixed rate.

Otherwise, it is possible to take a bus (alibus) to the main central train station, and follow the instructions below to reach the Capodimonte Observatory.

From the main railway station (Napoli Centrale):

Take a taxi (about 10-15 euros) or get the underground Linea 2 (from "Stazione Piazza Garibaldi" just under the Napoli Centrale) Stop: Piazza Cavour;
After getting off, take the foot tunnel to Museo Archeologico, then exit.

Take one of the buses/trolleybuses listed below, get on at the bus stop highlighted  in blue bold  and get off at one of those highlighted in black bold, then walk to the Observatory (about 10 min).
