The meeting will take place at Plesso Didattico Capponi, Via Gino Capponi 9, Firenze, right in the city centre. We reserved room 5 for the meeting and 7 for the secretary. All rooms are equipped with a medium-sized blackboard and a beamer.
How to reach the “Centro Didattico Capponi”:
From the Amerigo Vespucci airport (Peretola area) there is a shuttle bus that will bring you to Piazza Santa Maria Novella (SMN), where the central station is
(the image “Firenze/Siena” shows the bus stop at the airport). To reach the city center you can also take a Taxi. There should be a flat rate of at most 25 euros (taxis in Italy are quite expensive)
there is usually a long queue to take the taxi. Perhaps one could also use alternative services, such as uber
The area is off-limits for private cars (not belonging to residents). We suggest you leave your car in “viali di circonvallazione”. Parking is usually not free in Florence. The closest toll parking lot is in piazza Isidoro del Lungo.
Once you are in Florence, e.g. at the Central Station Santa Maria Novella (SMN), the best way to reach the “Centro Didattico Capponi” is on foot. There are various routes suggested by Google Maps for walking to the “Plesso Didattico Capponi” from SMN. We recommend the most scenic route that runs passing beside the Duomo (Baptistry, Basilica and Campanile di Giotto),
and subsequently, from Via dei Servi, Piazza Santissima Annunziata with the Ospedale degli Innocenti (this last part is just a 5 min walk).
By bus from the station:
The “Plesso” can also be reached by bus (ATAF line 6). We suggest, if you choose this option, to visit the related Unifi website Tickets can be purchased at newsstands of the station, from the drivers or via SMS to the number 4880105 typing ATAF. Times and lines are displayed at the ATAF website, also in real time. Take the bus line 6 (from the main (SMN) station in the direction of Coverciano). These buses run every 5-10 min (but only in theory). The correct bus stop is “Santissima Annunziata / Institute of the Innocents”, from here, Via Gino Capponi 9 is a 5 min walk.
