Travel and Accommodation


Bologna, road junction of primary importance since Roman times, is today the center of a transport network of vital importance in Europe and Italy.

Here is a crossroads of the major motorways linking Europe with the south of Italy: the Autostrada del Sole (A1) Milan - Naples; the A13 to Ferrara, Padua, Venice and Trieste and the A14 towards the Adriatic coast (Rimini, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari).

Bologna is the main Italian railway junction, a high-speed line connects it to Florence (37 minutes) Milan (65 minutes) Rome (2 hours and 22 minutes). Venice can be reached in less than an hour and a half.

Guglielmo Marconi International Airport, 15 minutes by bus from the town centre, links Bologna with the main Italian and European airports. It is a major airport in Italy for the number of international destinations served, with a runway for flights with a range up to 5 thousand nautical miles and a modern technology for safety and environmental protection.
