HOW TO GET TO CAGLIARI:


Cagliari is the main city in southern Sardinia. It can be easily reached by plane from Italy main land and from abroad, via Milan or Rome or directly, e.g. from London, Munich, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Madrid. The direct international routes are mainly served by low-cost companies such as ryanair and easyjet.

The city airport is Cagliari Elmas, only 10 minutes from the city by public transport.From the Elmas airport you can either take a train to the Cagliari train station or a taxi.

The airport train station is about 5 minutes from the arrival hall; follow the "Train" signs to the left. The rail service starts at about 5AM and ends after 9PM with 20 mins. average frequency. The journey to and from downtown takes 5-7 mins, single fare is 1.30 euro. Tickets are sold by Trenitalia (http://www.trenitalia.com/) at the vending machines (located both in the Arrivals area of the airterminal and inside the train station), online and by official ticket counters and authorized dealers.

Train timetables can be found online but are, sometimes, unreliable. It's hence best if you simply look at the departure panel located in the arrival hall and check when the next train is due. Cagliari train station is located in piazza Matteotti, in the city centre.

Taxis can also be found outside the arrival hall. A ride to the city centre costs about 20-25 euros.Car rental companies are located in a dedicated area in front of the terminal.

More info on the airport website: http://www.sogaer.it/en/local-transportation.html

Alternatively, if you don't want to fly, you can take a ferry boat (from Civitavecchia, Napoli, Palermo or Trapani) to Cagliari. The harbour is also in the city centre, close to piazza Matteotti.




PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN CAGLIARI:


Consider buying a weekly ticket. It is relatively cheap, 12 euros, and makes life easy. It is valid on the entire public transport network (including the light rail) for 7 days since its first use.Tickets can be purchased at tobacconists and newsstands displaying the logo on the right, or at the CTM POINT in Piazza Matteotti (opposite the train station; open 7.30 am - 1.30 pm Mon to Sat, or use the 24/7 ticket machine).




THE CAGLIARI ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY:


The INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Cagliari is located in Via della Scienza 5, Selargius (province of Cagliari), in the island of Sardinia, in Italy.

Unfortunately, the Observatory can not be reached by public transport yet. We suggest to rent a car, or a mini-bus if you can arrange a little group of people.

If you are driving from the Cagliari urban area get on the road SS 554 and drive in the direction of Dolianova. Exit SS 554 at the crossroad with SS 387 (again, direction Dolianova). After about 1 km on the SS 387 turn left at the traffic light (normally off or flashing yellow; there is a sign for “Area Santa Rosa”). Follow the unpaved road for ~200 m. The Observatory will be on your left.

Meals and water at the Observatory:

Currently the Observatory has no canteen or catering service. You can take some food with you and use the local kitchenette, which includes two microwave ovens, a kettle, a toaster and an electric stove. You will also find basic pans, cutlery, dishes and glasses.

Alternatively you can get pizza delivered to the Observatory by calling the local restaurant Su Stampu at +39 070 2042809.

Note that you should not drink tap water at the Observatory.

Wireless connection at the Observatory:

Eduroam is available at the Observatory. Alternatively, if you don’t have an eduroam account, you can get a temporary password for the guest wireless network. Your host at the Observatory will take care of this together with the ICT staff.
