CONTACT US The GEM Foundation (Global Earthquake Model) is located in the university town of Pavia, Italy, and is part of the Pavia Risk Centre - a knowledge-hub of organisations, people and institutions working on ‘understanding and managing risk’. The GEM Secretariat is hosted by the EUCENTRE - one of GEM's sponsors and core institutions of the Pavia Risk Centre. Map Directions Message us Medieval Tower, Pavia, Italy From the airport There are three international airports close to Pavia: Milan Linate - 50km, Milan Malpensa - 90km and Orio al Serio (Bergamo) -100km. Linate Airport By taxi - a taxi from Linate to Pavia will cost around €70. By bus - there is a direct bus between Linate and the university terrain near the GEM Secretariat. There are only 5 daily departures (currently at 9.00 - 11.50 - 14.00 - 17.00 and 20.30). The bus service (called Pavia - Linate bus) departs from the airport at exit 7. The bus stops at Via Ferrata / Tangenziale [3/] bus stop. From there it's a five minute walk to the GEM Secretariat office. The bus goes on to Pavia's Central Train Station. If the timetable of the above bus does not match your arrival or departure, you can always travel via Milan. Use the Linate Express bus [25 minutes, direct] Take regular bus 73 to Milan's city centre (San Babila) and then take the metro to the Central Station. Once you arrive at Milano Centrale you can then take the train to Pavia (see below). Further information can be found on the website. Malpensa/Linate Malpensa Airport There is no direct connection between Malpensa and the GEM Secretariat nor Pavia centre. You will have to go through the city of Milan. If you land at either Malpensa 1 or Malpensa 2 (Easyjet), there are various options from there: From Malpensa Terminal 1, you can take the Malpensa Express train going to Milan Cadorna or Central Station. A single ticket costs €11 and the train takes about an hour to arrive. From there you can take the green metroline to Milan Central Station. ** From Milan Central Station there are trains going to Pavia (timetables can be found at the ). From the Central Station of Pavia take the bus to the GEM Secretariat - see below. Trenitalia website Taking the bus to Milan Central Station (right outside both Malpensa Terminal 1 and 2). There are buses almost every 15 minutes during the day, operated by Malpensa Shuttle or Autostradale; cost of a single ticket is €10. It takes about 45 minutes from Terminal 1, 35 minutes from Terminal 2. From there, follow the route as described above ** A taxi from Malpensa to Pavia centre / the GEM Secretariat will cost around €135. Further information can be found on the website.
