Useful Info

Transport

Flights: You can fly to Florence-Peretola/Vespucci Airport (and then take the airport shuttle bus to the city center) or to Pisa (and then take a one-hour bus to Florence).

Bus: The bus system is quite good, reliable for normal service. The #7 bus goes from San Marco (downtown Florence, near the Duomo) to Fiesole. The EUI is in San Domenico, on the way to Fiesole. The EUI stop is announced, but keep your eyes open. You can buy a ticket on board for 2 euros, but they are often unavailable. Your best bet is to buy a 4 or 10 ticket pass. Bus tickets can be bought in the newspaper shops or some coffee bars (those with the T (tabacchi) sign outside).

Accommodation

For those who need hotel rooms, you can try Pensione Bencista (http://www.bencista.com/); Villa Stella (http://www.villalastella.it/) which is close to campus.
