bus from Genova to Bologna

Is there a bus that goes from Genova to Bologna? I know that there is the train, but it doesn't seem to go in a particularly direct way (taking you through Alessandria).

thanks for the help!

Hi, yes there are buses going from Genova to Bologna but it takes 3h 30min:


On the train even with a change at Voghera it's still faster (it only takes 2:52) or change in Milano (3:33).


The train goes via Voghera because tha Appennini Mountains. The railtrack and the motorway A7 (bus route) go over the mountains following the same path.

Take the train. Long distance bus travel in Italy is uncommon and mostly incovenient. There is no service from Genoa to Bologna, in particular. The link metioned in previous post refers to a bus going from Sanremo to Pescara, with just a few departures per week, and which only stops en route at motorway exits in the middle of nowhere.

Train do not go via Alessandria. Indeed you usually have to make a connection in Voghera or Milan, but there are two direct trains per day.
