The Hackathon will be hosted by INFN-CNAF, in Bologna. Map

By Plane - Guglielmo Marconi International Bologna Airport (BLQ) is connected to all major European cities via national and international flights. The Marconi Express shuttle service connects the airport to the central station (Bologna Centrale) via an elevated electric monorail, which does not interfere with road traffic: it's the most practical, fast (15') and sustainable choice. The Marconi Express service starts at 5.40 a.m. and ends at 00.00 a.m.. Prices: single ticket 12,80€, A/R 23,30€. More info on site. Note that the PAY&GO CONTACTLESS means no receipt. You can purchase tickets online or directly on site. From the railway station, you can either walk to CNAF (about 15 minutes, see map) or take a taxi (about 5 minutes).

Alternatively, buses and taxis provide easy connections to the city centre, which is about 6 km far. It takes about 20 minutes to the city centre – and to CNAF. Taxi costs around 20-25€.

By Train - Bologna Centrale station is located at a strategic point of the national railway network. Hence, there are connections to all major national and international lines. You can check timetables at the Ferrovie dello Stato website and Italo website. From the railway station, you can either walk to CNAF (about 15 minutes, see map) or take a taxi (about 5 minutes).
