A taxi is the easiest way to get from the airport to hotel or venue; the trip should take around 30 minutes and cost 35 - 40 euro. To get to the venue, it is also easy to take public transport (~50 minute journey): take the train from terminal 2 of the airport to Passeig de Gràcia station in the city centre, and change there to the L4 (yellow) line of the metro (towards La Pau), exit at Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica station, which is a short walk from the PRBB (see map at back of programme).
For those flying out on Friday evening, we have organised a bus to the airport after the last session. Buses have also been arranged between the hotel and venue.
