If you are traveling to Trieste by train, your final destination will be the Stazione Central Trieste (Trieste Central Station).  From this station, there are taxi and bus options for you to reach SISSA or your hotel.

Bus Service

A complimentary daily shuttle will be available to transport guests to and from SISSA from October 22-25.  The bus will pick up and drop off in Piazza Oberdan.  Specific timing for this shuttle will be provided closer to the meeting date.

If you are unable to make the complimentary shuttle, city bus Line 38 departs from Piazza Oberdan in 20-minute intervals (8:00 am, 8:20 am, 8:40 am, 9:00 am). Please be advised that since this line is most used by SISSA students, it could be crowded.
