How To Get There

Palazzo Pesaro Papafava is indicated as a Yellow Star on the CADE 2017 Google Map. Upon arrival, look for the door on the left which is the entrance to the building; there is a bridge just a few meters away from the door (the bridge is on the map).

If the door is open, you will see Warwick University banner just inside. If the door isn’t open, it will be unlocked so just walk in. You will enter a small room, where you take the stairs on the left to the first floor and go through a set of doors to reach the actual venue.

Directions from Airport

You can either travel by bus/ferry and Vaporetto, Alilaguna line boat, or water taxi. Nearest water transport stops are shown on the CADE 2017 Google Map using blue markers.
