[h3]How to reach[/h3] Pisa has an international airport with daily flights to London and Munich, as well as to Rome, Milan, and other important Italian cities. The timetable of incoming and outgoing flights is available at the website of Pisa airport. The airport is on the outskirts of the town, approximately 3 km from the center. The most convenient way to reach the center is probably by taxi. Taxis are located near the “Arrivals” exit of the terminal. If there is no taxi out there, you may call the non-stop radio taxi service by dialing +39 050 541600. As an alternative, take the city bus “LAM Rossa” and get off at Piazza della Stazione (Railway Station square), which is the hub of all buses. [h3]Moving in Pisa[/h3] The venue Dipartimento di Informatica is located in the city center, at walking distance from most of the hotels.
