Access Information

To/From the Trieste Airport there are three possible means of transportation to reach Trieste:

  • local APT bus 51, runs about every 30', 4.05€ one way. You can find it on the right when exiting the airport (50 meters away), ticket can be purchased at a vending machine on the right of the arrivals exit doors inside the airport building. Pay attention: check the destination to be Trieste, not Udine!
  • Science Bus shuttle service, about 20€ each way. The driver will wait you at the arrivals exit. You can book it by yourself, it can drop you at your hotel or preferred location in Trieste. Note: send us an email if you choose this solution, we'll send you a code for INAF-OATs agreed fare!
  • taxi, about 50€ each way

Hotels & Logistics

Please arrange your own hotel accommodation. The Observatory is nearby Trieste city center, walking distance (uphill) from it.

A MAP with Hotels and some logistics is available HERE.

INAF-OATs has an agreement with two hotels:

If you'd like to book at those hotels please state in your booking that you're attending a meeting at INAF-OATs. This should ensure they apply the correct fare.

Other suggested hotels or accommodation areas can be (refer to the above map):

  • Hotel Colombia or near Oberdan square
  • Hotel Città di Parenzo or near Goldoni square
  • Hotel San Giusto or in San Giacomo neighborhood

The first two choices are in city center, last one is possibly nearer to the event location, but in a less touristicarea. On the map you can see that all of these are (nearly) walking distance form the Forum location (10-20 minutes, but pay attention to local topography), but are also connected by local transportation. Bus fare is 1.35€ for 60' travel (tickets must be purchased in advance and validated onboard).


Finalized as the Forum progressed.
