Bologna Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Bologna Airport! Then drive into the city and start exploring at museums like the Museo Civico Archeologico, the National Picture Gallery, and the Anthropology Museum. Park your rental outside Piazza Maggiore Square and stroll through Bologna’s main pedestrian area. Check out the bars, cafés, and relaxed atmosphere in the University Quarter too.

Bologna’s world-famous cuisine, la cucina Bolognese, is worth the trip alone. Don’t miss local delicacies like salumi e formaggi (cured meat and cheese), tagliatelle al ragù, and bollito misto. For a more exotic option, Pars Ristorante offers delicious Persian food.

Bologna is a great destination, but Italy has so much more to offer, so why not get a longer term car rental? Florence and Rome are close by, Venice and the Alps to the north are easy to reach, and why not explore the lesser known regions of Marche and Umbria? You can even pick up your rental car at Bologna Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Bologna Airport is also called Guglielmo Marconi Airport and Aeroporto di Bologna-Guglielmo Marconi.
