Travel/Viaggio

We know traveling so far away from home can be a bit daunting, but do not fear! We are here to help. We have provided details and options here and in our wedding brochure, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions about traveling internationally or within Europe and Italy. Per i nostri ospiti Italiani non crediamo ci sia bisogno di troppe informazioni, voi giocate in casa!

Travel Note

Traveling Brochure

We understand that traveling so far for our wedding is a big ask, that's why we invested a lot of time in creating this brochure filled with useful information to plan your trip. We want you to feel comfortable in knowing that you will not be left to your own devices but that we are here to assist you in case of help when planning your trip! We included additional information about the venue, how to reach us, places to stay, and things to do. We hope you will find this useful and that we will see you in Italy in October!

Flight

Bologna Airport (BLQ)

Our venue is located just 25 minutes from the center of Bologna. The most convenient way for our American family and friends to reach us would be to fly directly into Bologna Airport. However, Bologna is not the only nearby city with an airport. In fact, Bologna is a well-connected city and can be reached quite easily by train or car from many of the main cities in the Center/Northern part of Italy, such as Venice, Verona, and Milan. A tourist visa is not necessary for U.S. citizens, but make sure to apply for your passport far in advance (and that the expiration date isn't before April 2020)!

Train

Bologna Centrale Station

Why not sit back and relax with a glass of wine on a train as you zoom past the Italian countryside on the way to your next adventure? Trains are a great option for traveling in Italy without renting a car and are very affordable for those on a budget. We've used them frequently! Reach out to us if you have questions. Note: Travelers must purchase train or metro tickets and validate them by inserting the tickets into validating machines prior to boarding located near the entrance of the train or metro. Not getting your ticket "punched" may result in an on-the-spot fine by an inspector on the train or metro.

Travel Note

Flying to other destinations?

Not interested in staying put in Italy? If you fancy visiting other European cities instead, Bologna airport hosts low-cost companies for international flights like RyanAir, EasyJet, WizzAir, and Vueling. Tickets start from $25 one-way. We have used RyanAir extensively and recommend it over the other companies. However, please note that low-cost companies do not offer any complimentary services on-board and offer a lot of add-ons, so be mindful when purchasing your tickets.

Rental Car

Planning to rent a car?

For our American friends, renting a car can make it easier to travel from one place to another. However, you should plan ahead if you'd like to rent a car in Italy. Please note that while every country is different, Italy does NOT recognize U.S. driver's licenses. If you intend to drive in Italy, you should obtain an International Driving Permit before your trip. International Driving Permits are available through the American Automobile Association (AAA) either by visiting your local branch or mailing in an application. Please click on "view" below for more details. And make sure to avoid any zones in historic areas marked "ZTL" to ensure you're not fined for entering a permit-only area.
