Bologna Train Station

Jump to last reply

When in Europe we travel almost exclusively by train. We do not rent a car.

As we get older I'm becoming more concerned with having to carry luggage up and down stairs in train stations. This happened to us in Toulouse.

Florence and Rome (I believe Venice as well but is not in these plans) are not problems as they are pull in and back out stations with all of the tracks on ground level.

Bologna is a possible arrival city (by plane) so the train station there would be used.

From my map it appears the Bologna train station is a pass thru station. That means to get to all tracks but the 1st one you either have to go underground or over-ground to the appropriate track and then back to ground level.

Does anybody know if this is truly the layout of the Bologna train station and if so, does each track have an escalator and not just stairs. This might be enough reason to switch arrival cities.

Thanks
