From Airport, you will take the public shuttle which for 3 € will lead you in down town "piazza Municipio" (except if you wish to stop before at the central station).
Rome is very close [1h1/2 by train! but there are also flights! ], it can be a good idea to arrive by the airport of Rome. The choice of companies and direct destinations is obviously much larger, it is also easier to find a good price (for example on Eurofly a flight on New York for 299€ or on Paris a flight on national company for 175€). You will be able to be offered the train in first class and a feast to Rome (or in Naples). All companies landing in Ciampino or Fiumicino .
You have some information on the site of LowCost. OnAttitudeTravelyou will find the list of all the low cost companies which land in Italy.
Naples has several railway stations (including two for the traffic long distance: the central station (the district can be "hot" and it is opposit side to the location of the Conference), and Campi Flegrei (for 22€ to 32 € in first class) which is only 1h35 from Rome and which is side of the place of the Conference. You can consult the site of the Italian railroads TrenItalia or that very ergonomic of BundesBahn.
To circulate in Naples and to go to the Conference
To circulate in Naples
You will have to walk in down town, but you can also travel by the subway, tram, funiculars... and others. It is a little difficult to know; consult only the website (in Italian): that of Daniele Pizzo which gives about complete information.
I dont find planes for the buses or updated plan for the subway.
To use these transports only one ticket: "Unico Napoli" that you can acquire for 1 €, it will enable you to travel 90 minutes, or 3 € for the day. [ a similar system "Unico Campania", with durations lengthened according to the distance, exists for the ways in Campanie, except Naples centre town ]
To go to the Conference from downtown
Simplest is to take a taxi by knowing that we are in the north of the city in edge of sea, near Mergellina and at the beginning of the district of Posillipo
Public transport is not very convenient. From the centre town (the top of the place "municipio") to take the R3 line until Mergellina "del Leone" then C21 to go down to the stop "Petrarca"(3rd stop) near to the conference's location.
To circulate around (and after the conference)
A important rail network around Naples (English site, with plan, and routes)
a line very attended for its interest for the tourists: CircumVesuviana
A network per boat "Metro del Mare"
You have three possibilities to find you a lodging for the duration of the Conference:
To trust in our partner
To trust in the local organizers
To seek yourselves on the Web
You can trust in our partner.
You can trust in our local committee

To be given these tariffs, you must reserve quickly and
announce that you come for the AEA conference at the Parthenope University
("congresso AEA all' Università di Parthenope" or "Parthenope University tariff").
