How to come to the conference

By plane

By train

There is a small railway station in Juan-les-Pins, but only local trains stop there. Warning: do not confuse "Juan-les-Pins" with "Antibes" or "Antibes-Juan-les-Pins". Juan-les-Pins is a neighborhood of the city of Antibes. The city itself is sometimes called Antibes-Juan-les-Pins. There is a larger railway station in Antibes, where all long distance trains stop.

So, in summary, you should:

By road

(Those instructions were kindly provided by the Hotel Ambassadeur).

If you come by car, you should somehow get to the A8 motorway, which is the main highway along the coast. Remember that most highways in France are not free, so prepare some change for the tolls (but credit cards are accepted also).
