How to get to the congress venue



With the A1 motorway, it takes 20 minutes from the Firenze Nord and Firenze Sud toll booths to reach the exhibition center and its parking lots.
You can also decide to leave the car directly on the motorway and take the tramway, thanks to Italy’s first motorway Drive and Tramway. Leave your car at the Villa Costanza car park and reach the center in a few minutes.


Thanks to the high-speed railway line, reaching Florence by train is a matter of minutes, and the exhibition center is just a few steps from the central station of Santa Maria Novella.

From Bologna 37 min; from Rome 1 h and 30 min; from Milan 1 h and 50 min; from Naples 2 h and 55 min.


The Amerigo Vespucci International Airport (FLR) is only 4 km from the center of Florence, and the T2 line of the tramway connects it to the central station of Santa Maria Novella in 20 minutes.

Pisa’s Galileo Galilei International Airport (PSA) is located one hour from the center of Florence, and is connected to the Tuscan capital with trains departing every hour and Terravision buses.
Thanks to the high-speed trains that connect Bologna and Florence in half an hour, even the Guglielmo Marconi Airport of Bologna (BLQ) allows you to easily reach Florence.
