MEETING POINT: FONTANA DEL NETTUNO-NEPTUNE FOUNTAIN is located in Piazza Maggiore (the main square), in a traffic restricted area, so it is possible to reach it only on foot or by taxi/blue car.
Private coaches have to ask for a special permission to the Municipality of Bologna (www.comune.bologna.it), or to the local traffic officers department (www.comune.bologna.it/poliziamunicipale/) in order to approach the Main Square.
MEETING POINT: PIAZZA MALPIGHI-MALPIGHI SQUARE there is the drop-off/pick-up spot for tourist coaches, and it is 7 minutes walking distance from Piazza Maggiore (the main square).
A 15 minutes stop is allowed during which the driver can not leave the bus. It is not a parking area so the bus must leave the area as soon as possible and it may park at the Bus Station (www.autostazionebo.it) with a fee to pay, otherwise coaches can park for free in the Fair District area, outside the City Medieval Walls.
