[libreoffice-conference] Travel Info for Conference


From Linate Airport

Linate is very close to Milan, so you can take the bus 73 or X73 (no
stop) in front of the airport, which will drop you in Piazza San Babila
(heart of Milan, underground MM1). Avoid taxis, unelss you have bulky
luggage, as they are extremely expensive (be careful and check the
meter, which is compulsory).

From Malpensa Airport

If you fly EasyJet, you will arrive at Malpensa Terminal 2. If you fly
any other airline, you will arrive at Malpensa Terminal 1 Airport. Take
the Autostradale bus to Milan Central Railway Station (you can download
the timetable from this link:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/autostradale-malpensatimetable.pdf).
DO NOT TAKE TAXIS.

From Bergamo Airport

If you fly Ryanair, you will arrive at Bergamo Caravaggio Airport. Take
the Autostradale bus to Milan Central Railway Station (you can download
the timetable from this link:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/autostradale-malpensatimetable.pdf).
DO NOT TAKE TAXIS.

Public Transportation

You can find general rules here:
http://www.atm-mi.it/en/ViaggiaConNoi/Biglietti/Pages/Tipologie.aspx. If
you have bulky luggage (bigger than a regular trolley) you must buy a
ticket for the luggage as well (it is weird, but this is the rule). I
suggest to buy the Carnet of 10 Standard Tickets, which is personal (you
cannot share it) but is better than the 24/48 hours ticket (unless you
plan to use it more that three times in a day). You can find ticket
descriptions and prices here:
http://www.atm-mi.it/en/ViaggiaConNoi/Biglietti/Pages/Biglietti%20Urbani.aspx.

I suggest to use the underground as much as possible, because it is less
subject to surface traffic (which is really unpredictable). The
underground map is here:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/map-underground.pdf. The
entire network map, including surface buses and trams, is here:

Getting to the Conference from the Underground

OPENING SESSION

Get out at MM1 Duomo (underground, red line), and then follow the map to
the Old University
(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/map-openingsession.pdf).
Once there, you enter from the right entrance into the main court, where
you must reach the door in the middle of the left wing. Once in, the
main hall is on the left side (there should be LibreOffice banners).

To go to the Conference Building, go back to Duomo Square, and get MM3
(yellow line) direction San Donato Milanese. You must get out at Lodi TIBB.

CONFERENCE BUILDING

Get out at MM3 Lodi TIBB (underground, yellow line), and then follow the
map to the Computer Science Department
(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/map-department.pdf). Once
there, you enter in the court and turn left where you will see the
LibreOffice banner between Aula Alfa and Aula Beta. If you are looking
for Aula Lauree, turn right for the LibreOffice banner, enter the door
and go to the second floor (where you will find some signage).

Getting from the Conference to the Hackatons

HACKATONS

From the conference building, follow the map:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/116590/map-hackaton.pdf. When you
are at the end of Strada della CaritĂ , you will find the door of ELF
Teatro building just in front of you, on the other side of Via San
Gerolamo Emiliani (number 1). If the door is closed, ring ELF Teatro, or
call +39 02 4547 6550 (or my mobile +39 348 5653829).

Power Plugs

Coming from another country, you usually need an adapter (for sure if
you are coming from the US or UK, most probably if you are coming from
Germany). You can find many infos here:
http://www.adaptelec.com/index.php?main_page=document_general_info&products_id=304.

Food, Drinks and Coffee

Food is usually good everywhere (of course, there are places where it is
even better), but check the prices before entering any restaurant and
avoid those not showing prices outside.

Wine can be very expensive, so always ask for the wine list and check
the prices. Beware of the house wine, because the quality might be terrible.

Italian coffee is considered to be very strong. I suggest you to taste
it at least once, and if you feel it is really too strong you can ask
for american coffee (which is coffee soup for Italians).

Cappuccino is very popular amongst foreigners, but please do not drink
it at the end of the meal (Italians will look at you with a sense of
sympathy).

As an alternative, you can try "caffè marocchino", which has some milk
and cocoa powder in it. Some Italians drink it at the end of the meal
although most do not consider it appropriate.

Wine and Alcohols

I am an expert (certified wine and grappa taster), so please ask for a
suggestion before getting intoxicated by something bad. It is better a
beer than a bad wine.
