There will be a pre-arranged bus leaving from Ben-Gurion airport on Saturday Feb. 16 at 21:00 going directly to the hotel and an additional bus leaving from Tel Aviv Savidor station on Feb. 17 at 9:00, also going directly to the hotel. A return bus from the hotel to the airport will depart on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 16:30.
Public bus and train:
There are two options for arriving to the hotel from the airport via train and public bus:
- Take the train from the airport to Tel Aviv Central Savidor train station (~15 NIS). Take the exit towards Tel Aviv on the south-west side of the train station, walk west from there to the bus terminal. There are two buses going to Nazareth Illit (a town next to Nazareth), stopping at the city hall there (on Gilboa St.) which is a 500 meter walk to the hotel. One is line 826 by Egged , and the other (faster but less frequent) is line 833 by ntt (both are roughly 35 NIS). Bus 833 starts at the bus terminal near the train station (platform A10). Bus 826 starts at the central bus station of Tel Aviv, and it has a stop near the train station, on Namir Road which is the main North-South street passing the train station – upon exiting the train station head west past the bus terminal until you get to the bus stations along this road.
- Take the train from the airport to Haifa center-Hashmona (~40 NIS). From there take bus 332 by ntt to Nazareth (~20 NIS). The bus stops at city hall in Nazareth Illit (on Gilboa street) which is a 500 meter walk to the hotel.
The bus lines above are also the best options to get from Tel Aviv or Haifa to the conference site by public transportation.
Private taxis may take you from the airport to the hotel in Nazareth (for roughly 650-750 NIS) and usually operate around the clock. It is recommended to take a taxi from the taxi station right outside the arrival hall. It is also possible to take a train from the airport to Haifa center-Hasmona station or Haifa Hof Carmel station (~40 NIS) and take a private taxi from there (for roughly 250 NIS).
