Ischia2015 ends in dinner on Thursday, so you normally leave whenever on Friday 3 July. ISHPSSB2015 starts with registration and speeches on Sunday 5 July.

From the Travel Info page or specifically from CaremarFerries , you see the first (fast) ferry leaves Ischia at 06h20 (I trust hotel checkout is no problem, as done via local organizer Christiane Groeben?), while more reasonable is a slow one at 07h00 or 8h45 (but check the other ferry companies).

ISH2015 info from ishpssb2015.uqam.ca/program/schedule.html :

On Sunday, July 5th, the registration desk will be open from 14:00 to 17:00. The presidential address and opening ceremony will be from 17:00 to 18:00, followed by a welcome cocktail.

From the airport: taxi rides to downtown have a 40$ fixed price and take 30-40 minutes; or bus 747 takes you to the congress doorsteps in about an hour.


Fast trains in Italy are Trenitalia (=state railway) 'Frecce' (='arrows') -- 'frecciarossa/frecciargento/freccia...'), or the cheaper competing Italo on the same track (so stations sometimes don't announce those just to bully them). Tickets can be bought in English with www.italiarail.com or www.thetrainline-europe.com (no endorsement).

Feasible airports are Naples International (NAP) and Rome Fiumincino (FCO) or Rome Ciampino (CIA). Connections and prices can be found with e.g. skyscanner.net (no endorsement).

Feel free to add more general info (like ticket buying options or connection finders) as replies to this topic; add routes as separate topics.

Hi. This discussion thread is intended for sharing information and ideas about how best to travel more or less directly from the Ischia Summer School to the ISHPSSB conference in Montréal. Apparently a few of us are doing both. So please, if you already have a trip booked, or some good advice to offer, share it here so that people such as myself, who have never been to Italy nor to Canada, can learn from you. Thanks, Petter
