Car or Train from Bologna to Artimino/Pisa?

by Fionnan

Hi,

My girlfriend and I are arriving in Bologna on Wednesday morning and going on to Artimino on Thursday afternoon. We are in Italy for 8 days. However, at the moment we are between two minds about whether it would be wiser to rent a car in Bologna and drive to Artimino, or just get the train to Pisa. Is the journey/scenery sufficiently interesting and captivating to justify going by car?

Grazie mille.

Yes, if you take secondary roads over the Appennines it's quite a lovely trip. As a general rule, the smaller the roads the better the scenery.

Thanks a million. Do you know how far it is from Bologna to Artimino, or where I would find such a calculator or route planner online?

Sorry, I don't know Artimino. I only know from driving over the mountains a few times that they're quite beautiful.

Hmmmn, since the train from Florence to Pisa doesn't appear to go through Artimino (the closest it appears to come is Carmignano, several kilometers away by car or bus), it would seem that the car would be a better idea.

In any case, you will be in the countryside, with many wonderful things within an hour's drive, so even if the drive down the A1 from Bologna to Florence is boring, who cares? Having the car in Artimino and being able to prowl around the countryside will be worth it!

Travel Tips for Bologna

Cover charges and tipping

by Bunsch

When you are seated at an Italian restaurant, you should anticipate paying "coperto" or a cover charge, assessed on a per person basis. This ranges from something minimal to several euros, presumably depending upon the restaurant although I never analyzed this during our trip. Since the cover charge is intended to compensate the restaurant for the cost of doing business, including the employment of the wait staff, I was told not to apply the American standard of tipping 15% or more of the bill. Rather, the tradition seemed to be to put one's excess change on top of the credit card slip or cash to cover the meal. That sometimes resulted in several euros' "tip" but it would still be a fraction of what I'd pay at home, even if one included the coperto.

The best nightlife in Italy!

by Gillianina about pubs and discos

Bologna is among the most lively cities in Italy.
I suggest you to go in the town centre, in the University area (via Moline, via Zamboni): full of nice pubs and cafès.
I am going to suggest you some places I like: some Irish and English Pubs, some Italian style pubs and cafés, and some discos. Just look at the following tips.

The best pizza

by TatianaItaly about PIZZERIA "LA FATTORIA"

This pizzeria is my favourite. Unfortunately this place is out of Bologna and you need the car to find this place in the countriside.
Open at h18:00-02:00, closed monday and thursday
Visa, Cartasì, Diners, Bancomat
40017 San Giovanni in Persiceto (BO), località Amola, Via Crevalcore, 84 ...here you can find about 200 different type of very good pizza (with and without tomatoes and also a sweet pizza). The last time I had the “Pizza ai qattro funghi” and the sweet pizza “mascarpone, fragole and noci al miele”. This last one is normally eaten by more people together, but you can ask one only for you if you like. The characteristic of this pizza is to be made by soya beans and wheat flowr and to be normal size or big and very thin. This last one is the one I prefer.

Nice ambience

by ludogatto about Antica Trattoria Romagnola

Located near via Castiglione in a beautiful old seventeenth-century building, this restaurant offers a pleasant, elegant atmosphere: old pics, coffe machine, murano bottle in a anciet wood ffurniture. They serve typical traditional dishes from Romagnola, but also feature traditional Bolognese cuisine. The weiters explaine u all the dishes, every days there are different one.
As appetaizer they serve u some little cups with different hot and cold food, like olives, special cream cheese, vegetables with mortadella....
The chef raccomend ravioli, garganelli with zucchini or asparagus.
The dessert are fabolouse.
The wine list is good and full of every type of wine.
Closed Monday and Tuesday at noon.

Palazzo di Re Enzo

by orlandom

The palace, destined in the beginning to house the Town's Council, dates from 1244. In this building King Enzo, son of Frederick II, was kept for 23 year's until his death (1272) after having been defeated and taken prisoner by the Bolognese at the battle of Fossalta (1249). In the ground floor of the palace, once covered by cross-vaults, war engines were kept while the big halls of the mezzanine and of the first floor were used for popular gatherings.
