How to reach Trento
Find your way to DISI
The best way to reach DISI is via the local bus system. Bus Number 5 is the quickest route up the hill from the city center. The trip takes about 10 minutes. Board at the "Piazza Dante" stop in front of the train station or at the "Piazza Venezia" stop. Get off at the "Povo - Facolta' di Scienze" stop just after the blue sign for "Povo". Route times are displayed at every stop. The stop names are shown on bus stop placards. Tickets can be purchased at newsstands. Get them before boarding. As an alternative, you can use Bus Number 13. Getting to DISI from the city center takes much more time on this bus, but it might be useful if you are in the southern area of the city. Get off at the "Povo - Piazza Manci" stop and walk down the hill to get to the Department. Route times are displayed at every stop. The stop names are shown on stop placards. Tickets can be purchased at newsstands. Get them before boarding. Times and fares are available at the Trentino Trasporti web site.
The school will take place at the Polo scientifico e tecnologico ''Fabio Ferrari'' that hosts the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI). DISI is located in Povo, a beautiful spot on the Eastern slopes of Trento. More info can be found here.
The green arrow on the goole map below shows you where the DISI Building is located. The aerial view is quite old and shows you a parking lot. Do not worry, the building is there!
