Tel: +39 051 261555

How to get to Il Caffè della Corte:
From the train station take the public bus, #27 or #25, and get off at the first stop after the Due Torri. The entrance to Corte Isolani is located at #19 on Strada Maggiore.

From the Due Torri, the two towers at Piazza della Mercanzia, follow along Via Santo Stefano. The entrance to Corte Isolani is located at #18 along this street.

From the highway we recommend driving towards the center of Bologna and leaving the car in a parking area along the viali, which is the street that circles the perimeter of the historic downtown. Traffic is limited in the downtown area and allows only those vehicles with proper permits to drive inside the historic area.

Bus schedules can be obtained at the official TPER website.
