Bologna is a crossroad both for rail and car transportation. It is connected to Milan by FreeWay A1, to Rome by A1, to Rimini by A14, and to Venice by A13. Once arrived on the Bologna outer BeltWay (Tangenziale), take exit 7 (Stalingrado), and follow the Centro signs. At the intersection with the inner beltway (Vle Masini/Berti-Pichat), turn left around the old gate, and left again on Via Ranzani after 300m.
