By plane: the "Guglielmo Marconi" airport offers connections to most capital cities and several towns in Europe. A special bus (BLQ Aerobus) operates between the airport and the city center (ca. 25 min). The fare is 6 Eur for the one-way trip; the ticket can be purchased on the bus. Get off when you see the two bent towers; the bus stop is indicated on the enlarged map, and you are within walking distance (15 min) from the Department.
By train: the railway station is not far from the Department (ca. 20 min walk, see here for directions). Bus n. 33 or shuttle C bring you closer. The ticket (1.50 Euro) can be purchased at a tobacco shop, or at a news-stand or directly on the bus.
By car: by looking at the map, it should be not too difficult to reach via Selmi. Remember, however, that traffic in Bologna is a severe problem, especially during peak hours. There are no parkings nearby the Department; street parking is allowed upon payment of a fare. It may be hard, though, to find a place.
