Travel Directions

By Train
A regional train connection between
the main train station Roma Termini and Frascati runs every hour from early morning to late night; the train trip takes 30' and the fare is cheap at 2. From the Frascati train station to Hotel Villavecchia (or Villa Mondragone) it is about 2km distance.

By Air
Those flying to Italy will probably choose to fly to Rome (if flying to Milan is more convenient, there is a frequent high-speed train connection Milan - Rome which takes less than 3h. Just get off the train at Roma Termini, as this is the easiest way to proceed: see above).
The main international airport is Roma Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci Airport), SW of Rome, connected to the main train station (Roma Termini) by a train shuttle (Leonardo Express), which runs every 15', takes about 30' and costs 14. A (slower and cheaper)
regional train is also available. From Roma Termini to Frascati: see By Train above. The overall transfer from Fiumicino airport to Frascati should take about 90'-100'. There is a minor city airport in Roma Ciampino: this is interesting, since it is where some (e.g. Ryanair) low-cost companies operate from, and is SE, i.e. on the city side which is nearest to Frascati. A taxi ride from Ciampino to the conference location is about 20'. A train station on the line Rome-Frascati is just 4km away and getting there by taxi or bus and then proceed by train is just another viable option.

By Car
The area of Castelli Romani can be easily accessed by car, and Villa Mondragone provides ample room for parking. If arriving from the airports, it should be a 20' drive from Ciampino, or 60' from Fiumicino, according to Google Maps. Especially from Fiumicino, traffic jams are to be expected. Using the car from downtown Rome may be more complicated owing to intense traffic during peak hours. Arriving to the conference site from northern Italy requires getting the A1 highway (Milano-Bologna-Roma-Napoli) direction south. At km 576 from Milan, take the exit Roma Sud - GRA heading to city center; after 8km the exit Monteporzio Catone is only 2km away from the town, and the conference site is 2km further ahead, direction Frascati.
