Florence is easy to reach thanks to its own airport and in addition good connections with public transportation or shuttles from Pisa, Bologna and Rome, which all stop at the main train station Santa Maria Novella, only 5 minutes walk from the main conference venue and located in the historic heart of the city.
If you haven't visited Florence before, it might be useful to know that the city is easy to navigate and almost every destination is within half an hour walk or less. Getting around by foot is recommended, as it is often quicker and more convenient than other modes of transportation. Moreover, it is by far the best way to discover the many artefacts Florence has to offer while on your way.
As Florence is a very popular destination, we recommend booking accommodation as early as possible. ELIA has arranged two hotel portals for special rates for a wide range of hotels, catering to all tastes and budgets, within walking distance of the conference venues.
