Venice Lido is around 40 minutes from Santa Lucia train station and the Tronchetto car park, and 50 minutes from Venice’s Marco Polo airport.
Transfers both to and from Venice Lido (on September 26 and 27 respectively) will be provided by the NPL Meeting organizing committee, which has established pick-up points at the following locations:
NPL Meeting staff, easily recognizable by their distinctive clothing, will be available to help all participants reach Venice Lido via boats laid on exclusively for the event.
We recommend that guests attending or leading workshops on September 26 arrive in Venice Lido on time, at 1:30pm CET. There are trains from Milan and flights from London arriving at about 12pm in Venice.
At the conclusion of the event (27 September, 1.30pm), transport will be provided to return participants of the NPL Meeting to the Tronchetto car park, Venezia Santa Lucia train station and Marco Polo airport.
Venice Lido can only be reached by water transfer.
Venice Lido is situated 40 minutes from Santa Lucia train station and the Tronchetto car park, and 50 minutes from Venice’s Marco Polo airport. For this reason we strongly advise you to arrive by 1:30 pm on September 26, in order to complete the registration process, which will be valid for both days.
Find the top hotels near the meeting.
We highly recommend to book your hotel in Venice Lido (not other locations) by the end of July.
ATTENTION: the organizing committee of NPL Meeting does not guarantee transport to all those who stay overnight outside Venice Lido, who will have to independently use the public service or water taxis from Santa Maria Elisabetta, the mooring point for public water buses.
The organizing committee has arranged a dedicated transport service in order to aid the movement of participants on Venice Lido. Bus transfers to reach your hotel, the Palazzo del Cinema, the Hotel Excelsior, the run and the buffet dinner will be available.
This service, provided by the company ACTV, can be requested at the ACTV stop nearest to you or to your hotel. The buses, recognizable by the writing “NPL Meeting”, will leave from Santa Maria Elisabetta (the mooring point for public water buses) and will run at regular intervals, stopping at all of the locations involved in the event. This service can also be used by participants taking part in the run and in the buffet dinner (informal dress code).
PLEASE NOTE: we would like to remind you that the city of Venice is around 40 minutes from Venice Lido and that the organizing committee of the NPL Meeting cannot guarantee transport to those choosing to book hotels outside Venice Lido. Those who choose to do so will need to make their own travel arrangements using public transport or water taxis from Santa Maria Elisabetta, the mooring point for public water buses.
Participants arriving at the Lido on September 26 should collect their accreditation at the Palazzo del Cinema from 12:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. We ask all participants to pick up their accreditations on September 26 to avoid queues and delays at the accreditation desk on the morning of September 27.
Participants arriving at the Lido on the morning of September 27 will have to collect their accreditations at the Palazzo del Cinema from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
IMPORTANT: Anyone presenting themselves at the meeting without having registered and received confirmation emails from the organizing secretary will not be admitted to the conference
