    • late train from Bologna to Zurich Airport

      by MNIELDS1 Online Now Aug 26, 2015 at 2:00 PM

      The SBS timetable shows a train leaving Bologna Centrale at 22:38 on Oct 1 Arriving Zurich Airport at 8:13AM on Oct 2.
      The train goes through Milano Centrale & leaves Port Garibaldi, through Chiasso and arriving Zurich Airport at 8:13AM
      The Tren Italia website shows the latest train to depart from Bologna to Zurich Airport is at 18:38PM

      Can I leave Bologna late (after dinner) on Oct 1 and arrive around 8-9:00AM at Zurich Airport on Oct 2?
      I'm not expert in European trains that involve two countries so perhaps someone could help me make this connection

      Bologna clubs & discos in September?

      by bettyo70 Online Now Aug 6, 2014 at 4:17 PM

      Hi Everybody,

      We'll be in Bologna this September (mid-to-late part of the month). Can anyone recommend good clubs or discos that play any of the following: electronic/Europop/80s/disco/soulful house? We're not into hip-hop or hard rock. Also we'll be staying in the city center... so hopefully it's a place within walking distance. Thanks/Grazie!

      Half day in Bologna

      by ChanKC Online Now Jun 21, 2014 at 12:25 PM

      What are the things or places that I shouldn't miss in a half day trip in Bologna?
      Is guided visit a must when visiting Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio? Is Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio the same as Archiginnasio di Bologna? Are the library and museums worth visiting if I only have half day in Bologna?
      Does Palazzo dell'Archiginnasio and the Anatomy Theatre open on Saturday afternoon?

      Bologna Airport Bus - some questions

      by Kathrin_E Online Now May 2, 2014 at 2:48 AM

      Ciao amici,

      I'm going to Bologna soon and could do with a few details about the airport bus, linea BLQ.
      I already found this here:
      My hotel is at the corner Via dell'Independenza/Via Irneria/Via dei Mille. Google street view shows a BLQ bus right in front of the hotel,which looks convenient. Which stop would be the nearest to get off the bus - Arena del Sole?
      I arrive on Wednesday, so upon arrival this stop should be served. However, it seems that on Sunday, when I leave, the route is different and not all stops are served, but I do not exactly understand that information sheet Does that mean that on Sunday I'll have to walk to Stazione Centrale to catch the airport bus?
      Do I understand correctly that tickets can be bought from the bus driver, or where do I get them?

      Mille grazie in advance for any help!

      P.S. Links in Italian are perfectly fine with me.

      by pp73 Online Now Apr 27, 2014 at 7:01 PM

      Good morning all, I was thinking of spending 7 days in Bologna with my husband and 4 young children however after reading reviews on this website I recently discovered, I am thinking twice due! I have found an apartment in the city centre but I am now afraid of the 'safety' factor and what seems to be a crazy town…has anyone travelled here with young children? Any tips? Should I still go and obviously be extra careful? Not sure now…nothing booked at this stage…we are coming by train from Venice (on our way to Florence). Thanks in advance.

      Local trains from Bologna

      by taurean_traveller Online Now Apr 25, 2014 at 3:14 AM

      Am visiting my daughter in Santarcangelo di Romagna.
      I usually get a train to Rimini from Bologna and they collect me.
      However they had some friends visit recently who travelled to Santar from Bologna and they said they caught a local train that took 2 hours and it was direct without any changes.
      I cannot see anything on the Trenitalia site.
      Does anybody know of a local timetable?
      I am looking to catch a train around 2pm
      I like the idea of sitting on a local train and seeing the sites.

      I asked this question a long time ago but seem to have lost it.
      Many thanks

      Hi Everyone,

      I was wondering if anyone can recommend locations in Bologna where I can eat cappelletti con panna, cannoli alla crema, and erbazzone? I had these many years ago in Reggio Emilia. I will be in Bologna for two days this summer and I was hoping I might find these delicous foods there rather than having to travel to Reggio Emilia? Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated! Thanks and Kind Regards! :)

      Travel from Karlsruhe to Bologna

      by Kathrin_E Online Now Feb 27, 2014 at 1:21 PM

      Hi everyone,

      I am looking for the fastest and easiest wat to reach Bologna from Karlsruhe. Of course there is the train, but that means something like 10 hours. Doable if there is no alternative, sure.
      However, I'd like to ask if any of you can think of an alternative, i.e. flying, preferably without changes, that gets me there faster than the train.

      The dates in question are: arrival May 14 (if I have to take the train) or May 15 by early afternoon (if there is a faster option), return Sunday May 18. Dates are set in stone because I am attending a conference.

      Night trains are not a viable option as I know from experience that I cannot sleep on board a running train, that I am a zombie on the day after and would not recommend anyone to be near me - not the perfect conditions for attending a scientific conference and perhaps even giving a talk.

      Driving is also not an option.

      ... any ideas?

    • Bologna - Fiorenza football

      by joa1313 Online Now Feb 23, 2014 at 3:18 PM

      We are going to be in Bologna for this game, and I have read that it is one of the best games of the year, the Derby of Appennino. I have read in various places that one can buy tickets at a bank or at the stadium, but I am thinking that this game might sell out (and we will only be there a few days before the game).

      Does anyone have an online source to recommend? They all feel sort of dodgy.

      Another question: the ultra end sounds like fun -- or should we (older couple) sit elsewhere?

      Bologna as a base

      by nanadear Online Now Jan 18, 2014 at 9:37 AM

      Hubby & I are planning 11 days to Italy from Texas. Thought of flying to Bologna so we can take a day trip to Venice, one to Florence, maybe Pisa?? Rental car while there to explore these areas. Then take a train from Bologna to Rome for 4 days then fly home from Rome. No car there, lol. We prefer B&B to hotels, but a small apartment may be ok.
      So - Travel from TX 1-2 days [ hubby hates lonnnnng flights so we'll break it up

      Bologna area- drive to Venice for day, Florence for day total 3 days here
      Train to Rome, stay in city and us public transport
      Travel home 1-2 days

      I've been to Rome for a very quick 2 day tour with high school kids, wanted so badly to bring him back there.
      Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
