How to reach Trieste and SISSA
To reach Trieste
Trieste has its own international airport situated in Ronchi dei Legionari.
The Airport is 20 min. by car from SISSA and 40 min. from Trieste. It is linked to the town by a bus that runs on a schedule based on the main flights. This bus has terminals at the Airport and the Central Railway Station in Trieste.
Venice is not so far, and it is thus possible to fly to Venice and then reach Trieste by train.
Trieste has one main railway station, Trieste Centrale, which is in the centre of the town.
To check schedules and timetables, you can use the web sites from Italian railways (F.S.) or from German railways.
To reach SISSA
To get to Miramare campus (where also the Galileo Guest House is located) if you arrive in Trieste by plane, you can take the APT coach service to Grignano - Line 51. Tickets (cost 2.35 Euro) are available from the blue machine just beyond the arrivals gate (APT timetable). Ask the driver to stop at the 'centro di fisica', and once you have left the coach continue walking through the tunnels to find SISSA on your left (just after ICTP). Alternatively, you can take a Taxi (cost is around 45 Euro with a surcharge for luggage).
If you arrive in Trieste by train, you will need to reach SISSA from downtown Trieste by taxi or bus (number 36). The bus stop is just in front of the railway station and the bus (direction Grignano) runs approximately every 20 min. If you want to reach Galileo Guest House just drop-off at at the bus stop which is just after the two short tunnels (this is the last bus stop before Grignano). Walk back through the tunnels and follow the indications.
