Fondamenta San Giobbe, Cannaregio 873
The conference will take place at the San Giobbe Economics Campus, hosted by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Covering a surface of over 23,000 square meters, the San Giobbe Economics Campus provides a modern and fully-equipped congress venue in the historical island city of Venice, which is in convenient location to its attractions, transport facilities, and accommodations catering to all tastes. Attendees will also enjoy its 2,000-square-meter garden during the conference breaks.
Situated in the “sestiere” (district) of Cannaregio, the conference venue thus is in a walking distance from “Piazzale Roma” (representing the bus, tram and taxi terminal) and the “Venezia Santa Lucia” railway station (the so-called “Ferrovia”), which connects Venice to the mainland (notably the “Mestre” borough).
The San Giobbe Economics Campus is also well connected with the city center and the islands by waterbus (the so-called “Vaporetto”), with stops of the ACTV waterbus (“Crea” stop or “Tre Archi” stop) close to the campus. The stop of the Alilaguna boats, connecting Venice directly from Marco Polo international airport, are as well in close vicinity.
From the airport, Mestre or Venice (Piazzale Roma) can be reached by land via bus or taxi. Alternatively, one can also take the water route to Venice (Alilaguna boat or water taxi).
From the airport, Mestre or Venice (Piazzale Roma) can be reached by land via bus, train or taxi.
Piazzale Roma and Tronchetto are the two areas in Venice that can be reached by car, offering the following park terminals:
The Venice railway station is “Venezia Santa Lucia”. Italy’s major railway companies are Trenitalia and Italo. Tickets can be purchased directly at the train station or online from the relevant websites.
FUSION 2024 attendees may select an accommodation either directly on the island of Venice, or on the mainland borough opposite of the island of Venice (“Mestre”). Please be aware that the demand for hospitality in Venice is always very high and that several events are scheduled in the city for the same period. Thus, we strongly advise our attendees to book their accommodation as soon as possible.
On the island of Venice, hotels or other accommodations located in the sesteri (districts) of Cannaregio, Santa Croce and Dorsoduro will be closest to the conference venue. For bookings in Mestre, we would advise choosing an accommodation near the Venezia-Mestre railway station, from which the island of Venice can be conveniently reached by public transport via bus (operating 24 hrs/day) and train (last stop at the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station).
As described below, the San Giobbe Economic Campus can be accessed via a dedicated route starting from Platform 1 of the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station.
