Parking in Bologna

Whether you plan on driving to Bologna from another part of Italy or renting a car on arrival, it’s best to make sure you know the best places to leave your car when you get there. First of all check with your hotel if they offer any car parking facilities, and if they charge for it. If possible, try to find a hotel who do offer such a facility, as this will take the headache out of driving around looking for a car park and it also makes sense if you won’t be using your car much during your stay.

If you do plan on taking your car to the city for whatever reason, then the best place to park is at the Sant'Orsola Malpighi car park. Leaving your car here will keep it cool while you go exploring the city or treating yourself to some much needed Italian retail therapy and will also not cost more than a few Euros for the day. Always ask at your hotel reception or tourist information desk on the best places for parking in and around the city so that you can make the most of your trip without having to drive around for hours on end looking for a place to park your car
