How to reach us


From the Highway


from Messina

Take the svincolo Brasa (1) exit in the Via E. Basile direction. This is the second main exit from the highway (Via Regione Siciliana), just after the roundabout that leads to Via Oreto. You can recognize it because, on your left, you may see a massive complex of buildings which are nothing but the Pagliarelli jail. Follow Via E. Basile down towards the Ospedale Civico. The University campus will appear on your left. You will see some grey block buildings. These are the buildings that host our department, in particular you will see the back of the "Building 18" that is shown in our homepage. Further down along via Basile, you will also find on the right the Hotel Aetheneum, where usually our guests are hosted.

from Trapani

Those who came from TP have to follow Via Regione Siciliana all the way to the svincolo Brasa (1) exit. For them, this is one of the last main exits, just after the Corso Calatafimi (2) exit. Once you are in Via E. Basile, follow the instructions given above.


From the Railway station

The railway station is located in Piazza G. Cesare (1). Going out from the station you will see Via Roma in front of you, Via Lincoln on your right and Corso Tukory on your left. Once you are out from the station, you may either take a taxi, or walk (15 min) to the department. In the last case, follow Corso Tukory (5) and then take Via E. Basile until you reach the crossing between Via Brasa and Corso Re Ruggero (1). Once you are there, follow the instructions given in section by metro.
Alternatively, before exiting the railway station you may take the metro and stop at the Orleans call and follow the instructions given in section by metro.


From the Airport


By bus

One possibility to go from the Airport to Palermo is to take the bus (at the main exit on the left) and reach the main railway station which is located in Piazza G. Cesare (1). This is also the last call of the bus. The train station is reasonably close to the department. The bus fare takes about 1 hour and costs approximately 4.5 Euro.
Once you are at the station, follow the instructions given above.

By metro

Take the metro at the underground floor inside the terminal building. We suggest that you leave the metro at the Orleans call. Go out of the station and walk along Corso Re Ruggero until you reach the crossing between Via Brasa and Corso Re Ruggero (1). Here there is the main entrance (2) to the University campus. Follow Viale delle Scienze all the way until you reach a red building (Casina Rossa). Take the path on the left of this building and walk until you will see the shallow swimming pool pictured in our homepage. There is the "Building 18" that hosts our department.

If you want to reach the Hotel Aetheneum, follow the instructions given above until you reach the crossing between Via Brasa and Corso Re Ruggero (1). Now rather than walking along Viale delle Scienze take Via E. Basile (which is parallel to Viale Scienze). After about 200 meters you will see on your left a huge sign that indicates the hotel.
