How we build, perceive, experience, and share spaces
Mind how you cross the gap
Getting to Trieste by chance is easier than with premeditated intent, as the Habsburg, James Joyce and WWII refugees can testify. There is, however, a harbor, a limited number of land routes, and an airport with a few flights in Ronchi, 35km NW of Trieste. Its airline code is TRS, and trains to downtown Trieste are not frequent, but cheap and fast. A bit further afield, airports in Venice (VCE), Ljubljana (LjU) and Treviso (TFS) may provide alternative landing points. From VCE to Venezia-Mestre there are buses, and from there to Trieste it takes 1h50' by rail.

Reaching SISSA from downtown Trieste is a 1h steep uphill walk, but bus 38 from Piazza Oberdan does it in 15'. Running every 20', tickets can be bought in Tabacchi stores.
