The Bologna airport “Gugliemo Marconi” is linked by national and international air lines to flights to London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam, Brussels, Koeln, Frankfurt, and many other places.
A regular bus connects the airport to the downtown and the railway station. The ticket costs € 6.00 and can be purchased on the bus.
Bus stop at the airport is just outside the arrival terminal.
Bologna is the main italian railway junction and therefore all the most important national and international lines pass through it. InterCity trains and EuroStar (Pendolino) high speed trains connect it to all the major italian cities. Many night trains link Bologna with Germany, France and Austria; in particular from Bonn, Koeln, Amsterdam, Paris and Vienna there are direct night trains.
For the French: now TGV arrives in Torino and Milano, where you can have direct coincidence with the EuroStar to Bologna (Railway Station).
The main motorway connection is the A1 (the “Autostrada del Sole”), which links Bologna directly to Milan, Florence and Rome and to three other main routes. The A1 can be entered from Turin, Genoa or Brescia, by the A21, at Piacenza; from Genoa and La Spezia, by the A15, at Parma; from Brenner Pass, Verona, Mantova, by the A22, at Modena. From Trieste, Tarvisio-Villach, Venice and Padua the A13 motorway is direct, as it is the A14 from Ancona, Rimini and Ravenna.
All the motorways exits lead into the city by-pass (follow the signs “Tangenziale”) from which branch off the roads for all directions. The by-pass exit n.7 (Centro – Via Stalingrado) is the more direct one: it leads you on a large road (Via Stalingrado) pointing to the centre.
