Bologna is easy to reach. There are various airlines that fly directly to Bologna as well as excellent train connections from the major cities in Italy. In case your preferred airline offers no direct flights to Bologna we recommend to book a flight to Milan and then take the direct train to Bologna. The high speed connection is fast and the tickets well-priced.

By plane

Guglielmo Marconi International Airport links Bologna with the main Italian and European airports. The airport is located just a few minutes from the city center and about 8 km (15’ by taxi) from the Polo Congressi. 

With the Marconi Express train (, you reach the Bologna airport from Bologna Central Railway Station and the city center in 7 minutes. The airport is served also by taxis outside the terminal.

By car

The city is at the junction of the A1, A14 and A13 highways, and so is easily accessible from anywhere in Italy. The A1 motorway (“Autostrada del Sole”) links Bologna with Milan, Florence and Rome. The A13 motorway links Bologna with Ferrara, Padua and Venice, while the A14 connects it with Rimini and Ravenna.
