One of Italy's busiest railway stations stands just outside the old heart of Bologna. It's a 19th-century neo-classical landmark that is open 24 hours and deals with 800 trains a day, ranging from high-speed international services to local branch lines. Bologna Centrale has become a busy transport hub. At this point on Piazza delle Medaglie d'Oro, the city bus network links to both the north-south and east-west rail lines. Visitors who collect a hire car at Bologna Central Railway Station will find that the station piazza leads straight onto the SS64, Bologna's inner ring road, giving access to all areas of the city.
With a hire car, it's easy to explore the historic city of Bologna. The medieval heart of this lively university city is within the SS64 ring road where the churches, monuments and towers of Piazza Maggiore rival Florence and Sienna's attractions. There are all the galleries and museums you'd expect from an ancient Italian tourist city, but look out for the quirky shops and restaurants too. And it is, of course, a city where you should sample the spaghetti bolognese. Further afield, Ferrari's hometown at Maranello and the graceful old city of Modena make great day trips from Bologna.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
