Italy’s state-owned Trenitalia railway is one of the most comfortable and developed in Europe. They offer a wide range of connections, from high-speed trains to regional services. If you don’t need to travel by car, this is clearly the best way to get to the Formula 1 race in Imola.
There is a direct service from Bologna Centrale Station, which takes 20 minutes to Imola. From the station, you can reach the Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit in about 30 minutes, or take a taxi. The service runs every 30 minutes and costs in the order of units of euros. You can buy your ticket online on the Trenitalia website.
If you are travelling from the airport, use the Marconi Express. It takes seven minutes to Bologna Centrale Station. Then take the regular service.
Other Italian cities - Venice, Milan and, of course, Rome - also offer very fast train connections. From Rome, for example, the train to Bologna takes just 2 hours and 23 minutes. By car, it is four and a half hours. Prices and timetables can be found on the Trenitalia website.
There are also very good train connections from resorts on the Adriatic coast, such as Rimini, Misano Adriatico and others. The train ride takes about 50 minutes. This is a great option for those who don't want to stay near the ring road and pay the increased prices.
