The city can be reached also by ferry, it is directly connected to Civitavecchia, Palermo and Napoli; otherwise, there are ferries connections to Porto Torres (Civitavecchia, Genova), Arbatax (Civitavecchia, Genova, Livorno), Golfo Aranci (Livorno), Olbia (Civitavecchia, Genova, Livorno, Piombino).
Cagliari, and in particular the Castello and Marina districts, offers many accommodations with different prices and services, from luxury hotels to B&Bs. The Meeting will take place in the district of Castello, in particular in “Cittadella dei Musei” in Piazza Arsenale (“Aula Rossa” and “Aula Coroneo”, also venue of the School) and in “Aula Magna Architettura”, in via Corte d’Appello.
