How to reach the Accademia delle scienzeVia Zamboni is the street where most of the University administrative offices are located.
You may consult a simplified map of Bologna that shows the location of the Accademia delle scienze.
Find your way to the base of the two leaning towers. One of the radial
roads that starts at that point is Via Zamboni where most of the University
administrative buildings and Departments are located. Walk on Via Zamboni
away from the towers. Walk past Piazza Verdi where the Opera is located on
your left. A few meters after you will find the Accademia delle scienze.
You can purchase bus tickets either on board, or at "tobacco shops" that display the big "T" sign outside, or at newsstands. The current one-way fare is for 1.00€ (consult the currency converter for exchange rates). You may also purchase a "city-pass" which offers 8 trips, valid at any time, for 6.50€.

As you leave the Station from the main exit, cross the small piazza and the
ring road (Viali) to the other side. Almost straight ahead is
"Ristorante Risbo" in front of which you will find stops for
busses 32, 36, and 37 that all go to the University. The direction of travel
with respect to the Station exit is towards the left. The trip only takes
5 to 10 minutes. Ask the driver or someone for "Fermata San Donato".
During working hours busses pass every 5-10 minutes.

out-of-province (non-Bologna) license plates, you can drive on limited roads
to get to hotels, etc. Even in the best case, the roads are very
narrow, many of them one-way and on-street parking is just about non
