Both of our Bologna car hire branches are operated in partnership with Win Rent. You will find their desk clearly signposted in the arrivals hall of Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport. Once your paperwork is complete and you have the keys to your rental vehicle the city centre is just 20 minutes away. Bologna Centrale Station is on Piazza Medaglie d'Oro in the heart of the city. Our desk is clearly visible in the station concourse.
Bologna lies at the junction of the A1, A14 and A13 roads giving you easy access to the region and other major destinations in Italy. Like all major cities, the roads in Bologna become very congested during rush hours while the month of August is always busy when Italian families flock to the city for their Summer holidays. Cars are banned in the historic centre of Bologna during the day.
Parking in the city is on the street at pay and display blue zones or in clearly marked garages and multistorey car parks, of which there are plenty. Do not be tempted to park in permit only areas as you will receive a fine.
A great way to start your visit to Bologna is by getting an overview of the city layout. To do this take a drive around the Viali, an easily recognisable road that circles the city. You can orient yourself by locating the Due Torri, or Two Towers in the city centre and as you drive, look out for the beautiful buildings of the ancient university campus. Finish your trip by taking the short journey to the Giardini Margherita the city's largest park. There are many museums in Bologna but try and visit the Archaeological Museum with its collections dating back nearly 2,000 years as well as the National Picture Gallery which houses works by Titian and Rafael. The Due Torre, Asinelli and Garisenda, are the symbols of Bologna. Be sure to climb the Torre dei Asinelli for stunning views of the city.
