How to get to the venue

Arrival to Duborvnik
After arriving to Dubrovnik Airport you can take a bus that leaves the airport after every landing of regular flights and takes you to the City. The journey takes about 25 minutes. These buses will be marked on the window shield with the sign Airport-Dubrovnik and the bus fare is 35 Kuna (approx. 4.5 €).

If you are staying at CAAS, get off at Pile and keep walking for approximately 300 meters, in the same direction as the bus was travelling, until you come to the Cafeteria Sesame. In front of Cafeteria Sesame you will see about 20 steps. Take these steps to reach the CAAS building. If you are staying somewhere else, you can take the bus from the airport to the Pile stop and from there you can change to a local bus. The bus tickets can be purchased at any newsstand on Pile.
Dubrovnik Taxi Services
On Pile there is also a taxi stand. In general, taxi can be reached at any place and any time. From the airport to the City a taxi costs approx. 30 €.

Parking in Dubrovnik
Please be aware that parking in Dubrovnik can be exceptionally difficult during the summer. Unfortunately, street parking next to the conference venue and in the surrounding area of the city are available only to residents.

Public garage: When arriving to Dubrovnik by car, the best option is to head for the multi-storey car park. A bus shuttles passengers from the car park to the Old Town's Pile Gate, although with Pile and CAAS lying a mere ten minutes downhill on foot, you might not need it.
Please visit: Public Car Park Ilijina Glavica

Street parking: Croatia was the first ever country to introduce payment by text message for street parking! Look for the sign to see which zone you are in. Send the registration number of your car as a text message (no spaces, no special characters) to the four digit number shown. Your payment is confirmed when you get a message back from them. Different zones have different max waiting times and prices.
Please visit: Parking Zones map on the website of Sanitat Dubrovnik
