Getting to DjangoCon Europe 2014
Most of the visitors to DjangoCon Europe will reach it via Toulon or Marseille, before taking the ferry from Brusc to the island.
The ferry - "la navette"
Your ticket to the conference includes a return journey on the ferry.
The last ferry leaves Brusc for the island at 19.30.
To get to the ferry
Take the bus number 72 from the bus station ("Gare Routière") in the centre of Toulon, which is right by the train station ("Gare SNCF").
If you're arriving in Toulon by train, note that the bus number 72 stops at the train station too.
Get off at the stop "Prud'homie". The journey takes about 30 minutes and the bus runs about once an hour (1.5 €). From there it's a very short walk to the ferry.
Alternatively, a taxi from Toulon will take around 25minutes and cost about 40 €.
Take the train from Marseille Blancharde station to La Seyne Six Fours. Trains run about every hour and the journey takes about 50 minutes.
From the La Seyne Six Fours station, take the bus number 72 as described above to the stop "Prud'homie". The journey takes about 20 minutes and the bus runs about once an hour.
To get to Toulon and Marseille
Toulon and Marseille are both served by airports and high speed railway lines.
If you're travelling to France by air, you may find a convenient flight to Toulon or Marseille, but don't discount the option of flying to Paris and taking the TGV.
The journey from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to Toulon is direct and takes just over five hours, on a very fast and comfortable train.
France is served by a superb long-distance rail network, so check international rail connections as well.
There's a direct bus link five times a day between Toulon-Hyères airport and Toulon bus station ("Gare Routière"). The journey (1.5 €) takes about 30 minutes.
A taxi service is available 7 days a week at the taxi rank located outside the terminal at the Arrivals hall level. The taxi fare to Brusc will be around 80 €.
If you have a ticket for an "extra Monday night accommodation and dinner", you can register on arrival from 17.00.
Landing at Marseille (MRS) at 12.00, or Toulon/Hyères (TLN) at 14.00, you'll arrive on the island at just about the right time.
If instead you're arriving on Tuesday morning, we recommend taking the ferry from Brusc in good time to register before the first talk at 10.00.
