Coaches to Bologna

Visiting Emilia-Romagna is simple, thanks to regular coaches to Bologna from a host of European cities. Buses run into central Bologna from major aviation hubs like Milan, Venice, and Rome, making it easy to transfer after flights, while long-distance coach journeys from Paris, or even London are a possibility.

Which is the main coach station in Bologna?

Most buses to Bologna will arrive at the city's Autostazione. Also known as "Piazza XX Settembre", the bus station is a fairly basic facility, with few amenities. But it does have a very central location, making arrivals and transfers simple. Buses will arrive on the northern edge of the historic centre, less than 1 mile from most attractions. And if onward rail transport is required, the Stazione Piazzale is right next door, offering plenty of regional connections.

Which coach companies offer coaches to Bologna?

Domestic coaches to Bologna are provided by Autolinee Federico, Marino Bus, Ruocco, Sellitto, and Gulli, and direct connections are available from almost all major Italian cities. Services from abroad may include services from FlixBus, Ouibus, and Eurolines.

Why travel by coach to Bologna?

Coaches are often the best way to reach Bologna. That's especially true for those who are touring Italy, and need convenient inter-city connections. Local bus companies offer air conditioned, reliable services, with comfortable seating, and a wide range of journey choices. Journey times from Venice, Florence, Rome, or Milan won't compare badly with trains, and may well be cheaper as well. Additionally, buses provide a useful way to travel from major airports. For instance, they could be a good option for those arriving at Milan Malpensa or Florence's Peretola Airport.

Before you travel to Bologna by coach - good to know!

Buses arrive at a very central location, within Bologna's Old Town, so arrivals won't need to worry too much about organising taxis for transfers to accommodation. Instead, it's worth purchasing a Bologna Welcome Card. These cards make it much cheaper to tour major attractions like the Pinacoteca Nazionale, and the various sites of the Musei Civici. But when these deals have been exhausted, there's more to see. Don't miss the food stalls of the Quadrilatero, Bologna's premier market. And take a tour of the Piazza Maggiore, where the highlight is definitely the Anatomical Theatre - one of the birthplaces of modern medicine.
