    How to Reach the Institute

    IASF-Palermo is located at the "Area della Ricerca CNR", Via Ugo La Malfa 153, Palermo.

    * From Airport:
    The Palermo Airport, called "Falcone e Borsellino", is located in the "Punta Raisi" area, ~30 km West from Downtown.
    Taxi: The taxi fare from the Airport to Palermo Downtown (or viceversa) is ~ 35 Euro during the day; the fare is higher in the night.
    The taxi is the faster way to reach the Institute directly from the Airport.
    Bus Shuttle: The bus shuttle ("Prestia e Comande'" Company) will bring you from the Palermo Airport to Downtown (or viceversa). The journey is nominally 40 minutes, but it can depend on traffic. The ticket cost is ~ 5 Euro and you can buy the ticket directly from the driver. At the Airport, the bus shuttle terminal is located just outside the "Arrival" zone. There are more than 20 daily trips, at a frequency of 30 minutes, from 6:30 to 23:30 approximately. To reach Palermo Downtown, please, ask the driver for the stop at the "Politeama Theatre"; many hotels are located very near there. To reach the Institute from Downtown, you can use taxi (~ 15 Euro) or bus (see here below).
