Transfers vs. Other Ways to Get from Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport

International Bologna Airport named after Guglielmo Marconi is located in a picturesque region of Emilia-Romagna. The only passenger terminal of the air hub receives more than 5 million people annually. Having visited Bologna, tourists are heading to Rimini, Florence, Montecatini Terme, Parma, Ravenna or Modena.

How to get from Bologna Airport to Bologna city center or the other way round

The airport is only 6km away from the city. You have the following options to get there:

  • BLQ aerobus. By aerobus, you can get from the airport to Bologna center (Mille) and the Central train station (Stazione Centrale) between 05:30 and 00:15. The interval between aerobuses from 07:00 to 21:00 is 11 minutes, and the rest of the time — from 15 to 30 minutes. Tickets can be bought online, in ticket machines at the airport, or from the driver. Aerobus stop is to the left of the arrival terminal exit;
  • taxi, which can be taken on the spot or ordered via the app;
  • transfer, booked online in advance.

Getting from Bologna Airport by taxi or transfer are the only options if your plane arrives after midnight. From the Central train station in the city, you can travel to Naples, Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan or other cities of Italy.

Transfer vs. Taxi from Bologna Airport (taken on the spot or ordered via the app)

Advantages of a private transfer

Even a foreigner can order a car. Italian court forbade Uber on the territory of the country. In order to book a taxi from Bologna Airport to the city center via your smartphone, you can download AppTaxi, itTaxi or Taxi Click apps. But it is only suitable for those who are familiar with Italian.

Calm and comfortable trip. You will get to know the famous Italian temper already in a taxi from Bologna Airport to the city: drivers race, and cut other cars off. In case of transfer, it is you who chooses the speed limit.

No risk to be fined from 500 to 800 euro. If you accidentally get into an illegal taxi, you can say goodbye to this impressive sum. With Kiwitaxi it is out of the question: every driver has a license.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More expensive. On weekdays a taxi trip from Bologna Airport to the Central train station will cost 15 euro (extra 0,50 euro for each piece of baggage). At night (from 22:00 to 06:00) and at the weekend — from 18 euro + baggage fee. With transfer service, it is possible to get to any hotel in the city for 38 euro.

Transfer from Bologna Airport vs. Bus

Advantages of a private transfer

You can leave the airport even in case of a strike. Residents and guests of Bologna often face strikes - it is a common way of settling labor disputes in Italy. For this scenario, aerobus has a special timetable: from 05:30 to 08:30 and from 16:30 to 19:30. Transfer will pick you up from the airport at any time.

No need to plan a complex route. BLQ shuttle bus goes only to Bologna center and the Central train station. You will have to get to your hotel with another transport, so choose it in advance.

Disadvantage of a private transfer

More beneficial, only when traveling in a group of 7 people. One ticket on a shuttle bus from the airport costs 6 euro, and a public transport ticket costs another 1,3 euro. An economy price transfer from Bologna Airport to the city center for four people costs 38 euro, and a minibus for 7 people — 45 euro.
