How to get to L'Aquila
Additional coach services (operated by T.U.A., aka as A.R.P.A. and Itabus) are available from the "Tiburtina train station" (Stazione Tiburtina) located in East Rome. But that means you'll have to first get on a train/bus/undeground from the airport to get to the "Tiburtina train station", which will take you one hour or so, at least. So, we strongly suggest you use the other option above, as those coaches will be departing right from inside the aiport parking area.
Lastly, be informed that a bunch of European cities are also connected to the Abruzzo Airport in Pescara, located at about 100 km to the east of L'Aquila.

L'Aquila can also be reached by train. However, the whole journey from Rome may take you even 4 hours or more, and you'll have to change trains at least two times, whereas a bus will take you there in an hour or so. Thus, we strongly recommend using coaches, instead, unless you wish to visit historical towns in the Abruzzo region.
Getting to campus
Our programmes are coordinated and hosted by D.I.S.I.M. (Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics) located on the Coppito campus in via Vetoio - West L'Aquila. The Coppito campus also hosts other departments (biology, chemistry, physics, medicine) and, most notably, the main city hospital (in Italian ospedale). Keep that in mind whenever you will be asking for directions, as everybody knows where the hospital is.Local buses are operated by A.M.A. For more information and timetable see here
The webpage is in Italian, but all you need to do is enter the word "ospedale" or "Università - Polo Coppito" in the search box.
Number 1 or 2U Bus are very likely the ones you'll need most, as they connect our campus to the bus station at the Hotel Amiternum, the "L'Aquilone" shopping centre, as well as the main terminaus/bus station (known as Collemaggio or Terminal) in the old city centre.
