Travel information

General information:

The meeting will be held at the 3rd floor of the Department of Physics at the University of Crete.
The Department of Physics is located 10km West of the city of Heraklion in Crete.

There is regular bus service between the city and the university (bus #10).
The buses run every ~10-15min, and the ride is ~30-45min depending on traffic.
The ticket costs 1.70 Euro each way. There are vending machines at the bus stops and the Physics department.
You may also rent a car, but parking in the city center is not an easy task (at the University there is plenty of parking space).

There is an on-line real-time bus schedule for each bus stop.
By clicking on the bus stop you can get the estimated arrival time of the next bus.
The main stop of interest are "PAGNH (TERMA)" (University) and "LION SQUARE CITY HALL" (city center).
There is also an app (bottom of the page) that you may use to get the real-time bus schedule.

Because of road works the nearest bus sto to the Physics department is the "Hospital" (PAGNI) stop.
To reach the Department you have to cross the Hospital grounds.


This meeting is sponsored by the project GA No. 206469 (RISE-ASTROSTAT) of the Horizon 2010 Programme.
