AIRPORT CONNECTIONS
The "Sandro Pertini" Airport (Caselle) has links with the city center via an Airport Shuttle whose terminus is next to the principal railway station of Porta Nuova (corner of via Sacchi and corso Vittorio Emanuele), which is very close to all the best western hotels listed in the previous page. Please, have a look at airport web page for more informations.
Here is a page about BUS transportation from/to the airport and about about transportation in general.
Please, there is also a train service, but it is actually limited to an intermediate station which makes this service very uncomfortable.
