Travel

Passport and visa

A valid passport and/or identity card is required for entry to Italy. A visa may be required for residents of some countries. For specific information, please contact your local Italian Embassy as soon as possible.

Getting to San Pietro in Bevagna

Brindisi Airport is approximately 50 km from the meeting venue. Brindisi Airport is connected to various European cities by three low-cost airlines: EasyJet, Ryanair, and Vueling.

A shuttle bus service between the airport and Hotel dei Bizantini will be organized for the arrival and departure days (2 and 7 June 2020, respectively). To facilitate the organization of the shuttle buses, all participants must send their travel plans to the meeting Secretariat beforehand.

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

Bari Airport is about 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/to Bari Airport by the Secretariat, but we strongly recommend traveling via Brindisi Airport for logistical reasons.
