Most of the station is well organized (better than Rome or Firenze) but it was hard to find the main way out to the front. We found ourselves out on a side street and had to walk a long distance before getting to the front...More

The station is extremely central with a bus terminal outside the main door. The train service is excellent and there are a number of ticket kiosks to buy bus and rail tickets. The biggest let down is the beggars who hang around at the airport...More

its just a train station that is a major hub for the Italian railway. it does have some history surrounding it. Used it twice and it is easily navigated. However it is large and over two to three levels.

Like most of Italy's train stations. this one is easily navigable, clean, well-marked, dependable, well located within the city of Bologna and you don't have to be fluent in Italian to make your way through it, buy your ticket and find your train.

The central hub for trains and buses, always busy but simple enough to find what you need. Plenty of bus stops outside, the city red bus stop No.1 is on opposite side of the street beside the ice cream shop

Bologna station was very easy to navigate. We went back and forth from Venice and then I went solo on to Ravenna. No problems at all with finding my way. There were many information boards. There are some shops and cafes for food and drink...More
