Smoking is not allowed inside the terminal but there are designated areas outside the terminal. The last opportunity is before you enter the departures hall.
At only 5km from Bologna, this airport is well placed for some sightseeing if you have a few hours between flights. One of Italy’s most instantly likeable cities, Bologna's attractive redbrick medieval architecture contrasts with the youthful population, in part attracted by the historic university. Great for people watching, the Piazza Maggiore is at the heart of the city, just 15 minutes by shuttle from the airport. Don’t leave without sampling authentic gelati at La Sorbetteria Castiglione, half an hour from the centre.
Location: Via Castiglione 44 d/e, 40124
Opening hours: Tue and Sat 08:30-24:00, Sun 09:00-23:30
There are no hotels within the airport. The Sheraton Bologna Hotel & Conference Center (a Sheraton in name only – the hotel is no longer affiliated with the hotel group) is located just outside the airport grounds but a complimentary shuttle service runs between the airport and the hotel every 20 minutes during the day. It’s corporate in look and feel but offers doubles from €90.00 for two room only, a restaurant serving regional food and a gym and a late check out of 12 pm. Meeting spaces are also available.
