Castellammare del Golfo is a beautiful village on the Northwestern coast of Sicily on the Mediterranean sea. It takes its name from the medieval fortress in the harbor “Sea-Fortress (castle on the sea) of the Gulf” and it is located at the center of the Castellammare Gulf. Today, Castellammare del Golfo is an important tourist destination thanks to its beautiful uncontaminated coast, which lends itself well to swimming, fishing and relaxing. It is also strategically located close to other important Sicilian centers, such as the the ancient greek city Segesta, the sicilian capital Palermo and other touristic attraction such as Erice, the natural park “Lo Zingaro”, San Vito lo Capo and the city of Marsala.

By Plane: there are two airports close by: Palermo’s and Trapani’s Airports.

Palermo’s Falcone-Borsellino Airport is the main airport where most companies fly to.

Trapani’s Birgi Airport is a small airport used by Ryanair and smaller companies.

Most Hotels offer the pick up service (for about 40 euro).

We are trying to organize a pick up service for all of you (from Palermo and Trapani) the day before the conference starts (June 23rd), so please let us know your scheduled arrival time and we will try to arrange the transportation for you.
