How to reach the meeting venue?

From the railway station either by taxi (10 min.) or by  bus line 1 (20 min.) from the end-of-line stop opposite the station main entrance. Get off in Piazza Sansovino stop and turn upwards to Via Bramante and  to the stairs to the Observatory from Via Bramante. Take Via Segantini until the end of the street and then turn right and take Via Navali until you reach Via Bazzoni.

From downtown Trieste (Piazza Oberdan), bus lines to the Observatory are line 15 and line 16. Both lines stop in via Tiepolo, near the Pizzeria opposite to the chemist's. Turn right to via Bazzoni and after few steps you will see the Villa in front of you.

From the seafront you can take n. 10 from Piazza Tommaseo or along Via Mazzini and arrive at the same bus stop of n. 1.

From the airport the taxi (both the "normal" taxi and the taxi science bus)  will drive you directly to the Observatory from the airport if you require it.
