Travel and accommodations

Getting to Ithaca

The easiest option for traveling to Giesco 2023 is to fly into an airport that has a direct flight to Ithaca NY.  Those airports are currently Detroit in Michigan and Newark Airport in New Jersey.  The Ithaca airport is an easy 10-minute cab ride to either downtown or the Cornell campus.  Hotel shuttles are available.

For those who chose to fly into other NYC airports (JFK or LaGuardia), there are buses to Ithaca. The trip is approximately five hours.  We recommend Cornell’s Campus to Campus bus service. You will need to book a seat in advance and travel from the airport of your arrival to one of the pickup locations.

You can also fly into Syracuse NY, which is about a one hour drive from Ithaca.  Car rentals, buses, or shuttle services are available.
