How to get to ICTP, the host venue?
Please find detailed explanations how to reach The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), our local host, at their website.
Trieste is in the Central European Time zone, which is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. From end March to end October, Italy (and the rest of Central Europe) is on Daylight Saving Time, which makes it 2 hours ahead of GMT.
The Euro is the official currency in Italy. In Italy cash payments are widely accepted. However, large shops, restaurants and travel agencies accept major credit cards, Travel and Euro-Cheques. Note that cashing cheques issued by foreign banks can present considerable difficulty. Italian banking law prescribes that such cheques can be deposited only into a bank account, and a charge is normally levied upon this transaction.

Trieste is located in northeastern Italy, on the Adriatic sea. Although it seldom snows, the local climate ranges from cold (as low as -2C and less in December-February) and windy (due to a cold wind from the NE called the bora), to hot (as high as +30C in July-August). In all seasons, it is advisable to have an umbrella, waterproof shoes and sweater. In winter, a coat, gloves, hat and scarf are necessary. In summer, a bathing costume is useful.
There are strict regulations regarding entering Italy. More information is available here: https://www.salute.gov.it/portale/nuovocoronavirus/dettaglioContenutiNuovoCoronavirus.jsp?lingua=english&id=5412&area=nuovoCoronavirus&menu=vuoto.
