15th International Workshop on the Identification of Dark Matter 2024

Jul 8-12 2024 L'Aquila (Italy)

To reach L’Aquila:

The closest airports are located in Rome (Fiumicino AirportCiampino Airport). Gaspari express coach service operates from both Fiumicino and Ciampino Airports to L’Aquila (more info here:www.gasparionline.it/en, average cost about 17€). When in L’Aquila, Gaspari buses stop at Hotel Amiternum, about 3 km far from the IDM2024 venue (see attached map). To reach the venue, you can take any bus going towards the city center and get off at Collemaggio Terminal Bus. Also taxi cabs are normally available at Hotel Amiternum. You can also call radio-taxi company (+39 0862 25165, web: www.radiotaxilaquila.it). It would cost around 10-25 € depending on traffic or day/night fare.

From Rome Fiumicino airport you can also use the train to the station Roma Tirburtina (about 35 minutes) and take a bus to L’Aquila (about 1h30min): see train+bus.

While L’Aquila rail station is not well connected, frequent bus connections are available from the train station Rome Tiburtina in Rome. This station is served with frequent high-speed service by both main Italian rail companies (Trenitalia and Italo). If your train only stops in another station, e.g. Roma Termini, take the metro (line B) to reach Roma Tiburtina.

Buses from Rome Tiburtina are offered (among others) by TUA, Flixbus and Gaspari (about 1h30m). The bus parking lot is in front of the station’s main entrance. Buses offered by TUA are the most convenient since they arrive at Collemaggio Terminal Bus (about 500m from IDM2024 venue), while Gaspari and Flixbus buses arrive at Hotel Amiternum.

For more information about how to reach the IDM24 venue from the bus stops in L’Aquila see airplane instructions above.

Among other solutions, drivers can take the A24 highway and take the exit “L’Aquila Ovest” or “L’Aquila Est”. Then, follow the road signs to the city center and, in particular, those with the logo of the GSSI.

This is may be the less convenient solution if you are in a hurry, but the small trains that climb the mountains up to L’Aquila from Terni or Sulmona will bring you through really wonderful landscapes. Visit the Trenitalia site for timetables. From the L’Aquila train station take a bus or a taxi to IDM2024 venue.
