Getting to and around Emilia Romagna is easy and quick: the Region, thanks to its central geographic location, is easily accessible from all of the major highways, National roads and train lines in Italy and Europe. It is served and well connected to European countries by four International airports, making Emilia Romagna a gateway to Italy and an accessible destination to a vast pool of delegates. Ravenna port is a “must” stop in every cruise in the Northern Mediterranean Sea.
The airports of Parma, Bologna, Forlì and Rimini connect the region with the most important Italian and European cities with scheduled and charter flights. Shuttle busses operate daily services from Bologna Airport to Ferrara and Modena. A new bus service will start in summer 2012 from Bologna Airport to Ravenna and Cervia.
The Italian railway allows express connections to Northern, Central and Southern Italy. The Alta Velocità (High-Speed) train connects Bologna to Milan and Florence-Rome-Naples. From Europe you can reach Emilia Romagna from the Tarvisio, Brenner, Gotthard and Simplon passes. In the region, more railway services are available thanks to the Ferrovie Emilia Romagna.
Motorway A1 Milan-Naples links the region to important motorway junctions: in Parma with the A15 from La Spezia, in Modena with the A22 from Brenner Pass, in Bologna with A13 from Padua-Venice and the A14 Bologna-Bari. Easy links also to the S.S. 309 Venice-Mestre and the Clearway E 45 Rome – Ravenna.
