How to get to Cagliari

How to get to Cagliari and the venue

By Air

Cagliari is connected to the most important European cities thanks to the Cagliari Elmas (CAG, LIEE) International Airport ( A shuttle bus connects the airport to the city center in Piazza Matteotti, the central bus station, situated between the port and the train station (travel time: 10-15’). Moreover, also taxis and rent-a-car services connect the airport to downtown (the travel time is around 15’ depending on traffic conditions).

Once you arrive in Piazza Matteotti, take either no. 5 or no. 8 bus and get off at the “d'Armi (Ingegneria)” bus stop (

By Sea

The port of Cagliari is situated in the centre of the city and faces directly onto the famous via Roma. Nearby the port, there are the train station, the central bus station (Piazza Matteotti) as well as the main terminals for local and regional bus lines.

From the seaport or from the train station

You might get to Piazza Matteotti and take the no. 5 or 8 bus and get off at the “d'Armi (Ingegneria)” (
