How to get to Messina

Arriving by Plane
The closest airports to Messina are the International airport of Catania-Fontanarossa (108 km from Messina), with a high number of flights to and from various Italian and European cities, and the Reggio Calabria airport (30 km from Messina, beyond the Strait), with a limited number of domestic flights.

From Catania airport, out of the arrivals terminal, you need to take a shuttle of the SAIS company, whose timetables are found here. The shuttle takes approx. 1 hour and a half to get to Messina and stops near the Messina train station, in the center, close to both the University and the main city hotels.

From Reggio Calabria airport, exiting the arrivals terminal, you can take either the shuttle or the taxi to the port (about 20 minutes journey), and then, from the port, the hydrofoil to Messina (about 20 minutes crossing).

Arriving by Train
Not many trains arrive at Messina Centrale station. Many more arrive instead at the station of Villa San Giovanni, in Calabria. From the station of Villa San Giovanni it is necessary to take the ferry to Messina (about 20 minutes of crossing).

How to get to University of Messina

The University of Messina is located in the city center, in Piazza Pugliatti 1, and is therefore easily reachable either on foot or by taxi from any area of the center. Once in Piazza Pugliatti, you have to enter through the central door of the Rectorate and follow the signs for the conference. For those staying in North Messina, near the sea, you can take either the tram from the Museum terminus, any bus that runs along the coastal road (via Consolare Pompea) towards the center, or a taxi.

Tram and bus tickets can be purchased at newsagents and tobacconists and must be stamped on board. The tram route from the terminus (Museum stop) to the closest stop to the University (Cairoli) is approx. 20 minutes. From the Cairoli stop to the University it takes approx. 7 minutes on foot.
