From Cagliari to School venue

Depending on your ​arrival time, you might be able to reach the school venue by public transportation. There is a bus that connects the Cagliari bus station in Piazza Matteotti with our Research Park (Route 134).  Use Google Maps' "Directions" feature to find routes and times.

A second alternative with public transport​ might be to take a bus from the Cagliari bus station in Piazza Matteotti to the town of Pula.  You'll then have to find a way to get to the hotel or the Park:  your hotel's shuttle (if one is available), the local public transporation, or a taxi (should be about €20).

The third (and most expensive) alternative is to book a taxi directly from the airport to your destination.  There are several companies that offer this service (e.g., Follesa, Sina, ​Radio Taxi 4 Mori).
