The closest airport to ICGT'05 is the airport of Hyeres/Toulon which is 8 km away from the Hotel VVF. However it is connected to very few cities and the flights are infrequent. Hence to avoid long and multiple connections or to save some money, you may prefer to land in Marseille (110 km from ICGT) or Nice (150 km). You may also land in Paris or Lyon and take the TGV (fast train) fom there. (There is a TGV station at Paris-Roissy and Lyon Airport).
Landing in Hyeres/Toulon It is directly connected to the airports of Paris Orly, London Gatwick, Ajaccio, Bastia, Brest, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille, Nantes and Strasbourg. Shuttles will be provided from this airport to the conference site.
Landing in Marseille There are direct flights to Marseille from several destinations in the world (mainly Europe and Africa); see the list. There are buses from Marseille Airport to Marseille St Charles train station every 20 minutes from 5:30 to 21:50. The duration of this trip is approximatively 25 minutes. From St Charles station you can find trains to Toulon or Hyeres station. See the timetable of trains from Marseille to Toulon Sunday 11th afternoon at section "By Train".
Landing in Nice Direct buses go from the Nice airport to Hyeres (and Toulon) Monday to Saturday at 10:45 and 17:30. It takes 1 hour 45 minutes to travel to Hyeres. The fare is 23 euros (15 euros if you are under 26 or over 60). Alternatively (or on sunday) you can reach the Nice train station by bus (every 30 min. approx. from 6:00 to 21:30, 4 euros) and then go to Toulon or Hyeres by train. See the timetable of trains from Nice to Toulon Sunday 11th afternoon at section "By Train".
BY TRAINToulon is well connected to all the cities of France by Rail. There are direct connections from Paris (4h), Lyon (2h30), Marseille (40min) and Nice (1h45). There are also direct trains from Paris-Roissy Airport (5h) and Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport (2h20).
Hyeres station is closer from the site but for most of the journeys you will have to change in Toulon station. So if you intend to take the conference shuttle, it will be simpler to stop at Toulon Station.
You can buy your ticket or get the timetable of the trains on the SNCF website. If you buy your tickets sufficiently early, you may find discount tickets. Note that generally these tickets may not be modified or reimbursed if you do not use them.
You may also get the timetable at Die Bahn website (which tends to be more accurate than the SNCF one). Here are the timetables between Marseille and Toulon and Nice and Toulon Sunday 11th afternoon.
