By Air

The Bologna airport "Gugliemo Marconi" (BLQ) 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 € and can be purchased on the bus (see the Aerobus timetable).

By Train

Bologna is the main italian railway junction and therefore all the most important national and international lines pass through it. FrecciaRossa and FrecciaArgento trains (high speed trains) connect it to all the major italian cities. Many nightly 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 FrecciaRossa to Bologna.

By Car

The main motorway connection is the A1 (E35), which links Bologna directly to Milan, Florence and Rome and to three other main routes. If you come from Turin, Genoa or Brescia you can take the A21 and then you will reach the A1 at Piacenza; from Genoa and La Spezia, take the A15 and then go into A1 at Parma; from Brenner Pass, Verona, Mantova, by the A22 and then A1 at Modena.
From Trieste, Tarvisio-Villach, Venice and Padua the A13 motorway arrives in Bologna directly, as 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.

Move Around

Bus are run by ATC. The ticket has to be purchased at kiosks (it costs 1.20 €) and has to be validated on the bus.
