Travel and Venue


The Workshop Venue, Villa Orlandi, is located in Anacapri, on the enchanting Island of Capri, in via Finestrale 2. It is a seventeenth century villa which has recently been restored by the University of Naples, in rigorous respect of the original architecture. The villa is surrounded by a nice park and includes all essential facilities.


The best way to reach the island from Naples is by either ferry (“traghetto” in Italian) or hydrofoil (“aliscafo”), leaving from Naples harbor “Molo Beverello”. The trip won’t take more than an hour.

The international Airport of Naples Capodichino (NAP) has connection to the major cities of Europe and Italy. To reach the “Molo Beverello” harbor from the airport attendees can either take a taxi (it is suggested to request the fixed rate run, which costs 19 euros up to January 2011) or the “Alibus”, which stops just outside the Arrival lounge. The Alibus is an express bus which only stops at the railway station and at the harbor. The ticket costs 3 euros and can be bought onboard.

Also attendees arriving in Naples by train can either take a taxi or the Alibus to reach the Molo Beverello harbor.
Once in Capri harbor “Marina Grande”, you can reach the Workshop venue in Anacapri:

- By bus: direct buses from the harbor Marina Grande to Anacapri every 90 minutes
- By cable railway (“Funicolare”)+ bus: cable railway from Marina Grande to Capri every 15 minutes, and then bus from Capri to Anacapri every 15 minutes
- By private bus (to be reserved for groups of minimum 10 people):
- By taxi.
