Various hotels in Genova offer special rates to INFN guests. Please contact the INFN Scientific Secretaries Ms. Laura Opisso or Ms. Elisa Carnevali to reserve a hotel as an INFN visitor; please mention "Geant4 workshop" in your email.

The Physics Department, hosting the INFN Section of Genova, is located in a residential neighbourhood, while most of the hotels from the list above are in the city centre or in the seaside areas.
The Verdi, Sauli and Astoria hotels are conveniently located in the city centre near the Brignole railway station, where one can get several buses to the Physics Department (10 minutes by bus + 5 minutes' walk approximately).
Metropoli and Palazzo Cicala are centrally located in the old town; one can reach the Physics Department by 5' walk + 15' bus + 5' walk.
The hotels in Nervi are in a scenic seaside neighbourhood on the east end of the city; one can reach the Physics Department either by 20' bus + 5' walk, or by taking a train to Brignole Station (10-15' train + 10' bus + 5' walk, the regular bus ticket is valid also on trains within the city limit).
Capannina and Hermitage are in residential areas not far from the Physics Department, but they are not well connected to the meeting location by public transportation; they are at about 20-25' walking distance, or a few minutes' drive from the INFN site.

Parking is relatively easily available near the Physics Department, but it is very difficult to find in most hotel locations.

Practical information

Bus tickets can be bought at newspaper stands or tobacco shops; they are valid for 90 minutes after stamping them. They can be used indifferently on all public transportation within the city limits (bus, train, metro, funiculars and public lifts).
