Getting around Trieste

On the days of the Congress sessions the main location of PRION 2014 can be reached using a free-of-charge shuttle bus (details, route and timetable coming soon). Other locations such as the Gala Dinner venue and Poster receptions venue(s) are within walking distance from the hotels.

Trieste is a medium-sized city and most places of interest can be reached on foot. However the city has a very well functioning public transportation system.

For details and timetables please click here. The site is available only in Italian.

Taxis can either be booked in advance or found on the street at designated taxi ranks. There is an additional charge when booking a taxi by phone. To book a taxi call +39 040 307730 or ask the hotel reception to do it for you.

You may calculate approximate Taxi fares here. To do so you will need the departure address and the destination.

To reach the venue from downtown Trieste a free-of-charge shuttle bus will be available for the days of the Congress.
