The Conference Center is located minutes from the historic center of Rome within easy reach of Castel Sant’Angelo or the Janiculum hill. It is easily accessible by public transportation either by city buses or the metro subway line. The metro Ottaviano station on line A brings the visitor to within a few minutes’ walk to the center.
