ATTENTION

Of course we cannot guarantee a free shuttle service to each of the attendees so we suggest to find a valid alternative to reach (taxi, public transportations) the conference venue in case you cannot join the scheduled shuttle.

To this aim, we suggest to use the bus service provided by the “SITA Sud” company going to Amalfi (Cetara is on the way between Salerno and Amalfi). We have published the timetable on the “Venue” section of the conference and we also attach such timetable to this email.

In the timetable we have highlighted with a yellow mark the parts of the path that are of interest to the attendees. In particular, please note that in Salerno the departure point of the SITA bus going to Amalfi (and depassing from the “Hotel Cetus” in Cetara) is in the square in front of the train Station (Piazza Vittorio Veneto) https://goo.gl/maps/c2C4pY9Seco

(it is in the same square, few meters where the shuttle service depass). That stop is suggested for people staying at the “Residenza Eleonora” (https://goo.gl/maps/7MWKUWrtJgr), at the “Grand Hotel Salerno” (https://goo.gl/maps/9m8keRbHJkD2), at the “Hotel Plaza” (in the same square of the Salerno station), at the “Hotel Montestella” (https://goo.gl/maps/uQoSjgEGLDk) and any other accomodation in the city of Salerno.

For the attendees staying in “Lloyd’s Baia Hotel”, “Hotel Voce del Mare” and in the Vietri sul Mare village, on the provided timetable you have to consider the times on the label “Vietri”. There is a bus stop near the “Lloyd’s Baia Hotel” (https://goo.gl/maps/281hxUMEWCu) and also near the “Hotel Voce del Mare” (https://goo.gl/maps/njXr6ik6WSn). Please ask to the hotel counter if you need information regarding the direction to reach the SITA bus stop outside your hotel. Also, you have ask to the driver to let you get off in the right place (that is the Hotel Cetus). Note that the bus will stop ONLY if somebody will call stop.

The conference venue (the “Hotel Cetus”) is in Cetara and the SITA bus stops just outside the “Hotel Cetus” here: https://goo.gl/maps/jgkaKegpzAx
