GETTING THERE AND GETTING AROUND

We want to see as many of you as possible at our wonderful congress! However, we are also conscious of the large environmental footprint that these gatherings can have. This is why we would like to encourage you to make your travel plans carefully by choosing the most environmentally-friendly mode of transport possible. For many of us coming from within Europe, this will be the train. The train is also less stressful and more comfortable than flying and means that you get to see the countries you are travelling through. However, if you do choose to come by train, you may want to consider booking early to get the cheapest tickets! If travelling by air is the only viable option for you, please consider offsetting your carbon footprint as proposed by your airline or in some other way. There are some suggestions on this UK website https://eco-age.com/news/how-offset-your-carbon-emissions-when-travelling to get you going.

TRANSPORT OPTIONS

TRAIN: Assisi’s train station (sometimes known as ‘Santa Maria degli Angeli-Assisi’ station) is a very short journey by bus or taxi from Domus Pacis. Bus tickets can be purchased at the news stand inside the station or from the driver. Otherwise, it is only 10 minutes’ walk from the station to Domus Pacis. The ease of getting from the station to the congress venue makes travelling to Assisi by train rather than by air the most convenient option – as well as the most comfortable and environmentally-friendly! To book your train ticket from any station within Europe, try https://www.thetrainline.com/. If you cannot find a route from your starting point, book a ticket for Rome and then book a ticket from Rome to Assisi separately. This website https://www.seat61.com/ also has some useful tips about international rail travel.
BUSES stop at the Basilica Santa Maria degli Angeli, which is just in front of Domus Pacis.
PARKING at Domus Pacis is free (300 cars).
TAXI from Assisi centre to Domus Pacis is 15 Euro for 1-5 persons
