To Piazza Scaravilli by bus:

Bus tickets are available for puchase on board in almost every bus (one euro and fifty cents for one-hour's fare).
Unfortunately, Piazza Scaravilli is not directly reachable by bus. Buses 36 and 37 are relatively close to the department ("fermata" San Donato), and also pass by the train station. This station is at the end of Via Irnerio and you have to walk back this street before turning left at Via Bertoloni. Go straight along Via Bertoloni until you arrive at Piazza Scaravilli.

Bologna by Car:

We warmly advise against coming to downtown Bologna by car, as most of the roads in the historic center are narrow and are restricted against out-of-province vehicles.

You can find a map of the motorways around Bologna here.

When arriving on the motorway from any direction, get on the Bologna "tangenziale" (the Beltway) and look for exit 7, near the Fiera (Trade Fair) district. The exit is directly north of the city. From the exit, follow Via Stalingrado towards "Centro". Once you arrive at Porta Mascarella, after having crossed the bridge over the railroad tracks, turn left and follow Viale Berti Pichat to Porta San Donato. Take Via Irnerio on the right and park the car. To reach the department, follow the instructions "To Piazza Scaravilli by feet".

You can find a detailed map of the directions here.

Parking garages are everywhere around the city center. At the beginning of Via Irnerio, in front of Parco della Monagnola is Piazza VIII Agosto with a big parking garage, open for 24 hours.
