Motorhome hire in Bologna

Are you ready to set off on your next adventure with your campervan hire in Bologna? Centuries of history, art, and architecture, coupled with the nearby sea, enchanting landscapes, and unparalleled local delicacies await you. But where to begin? Below is some information to plan your road trip from Bologna.


Campervans: Equipped and ready for adventure

When you hire a campervan in Bologna you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a coffee pot, plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from Bologna you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the roadsurfer station. Full details of what’s included in your motorhome hire, and our suggestions on what to bring along to your Bologna campervan holiday can be found in the equipment list.

Best time to hire a campervan in Bologna

Bologna’s timeless beauty welcomes visitors year-round, with spring (April-June) and late summer (September-October) offering optimal conditions to hire a campervan in Bologna. During these seasons, you can enjoy the city without the inconvenience of muggy heat or tourist crowds. Explore the legendary Colli Bolognesi on a bicycle tour, perhaps combined with a delightful food and wine experience, creating unforgettable memories.

Cultural richness persists in Bologna throughout the year. June hosts Biografilm, an international film festival dedicated to biopics. Embrace open-air evenings and diverse films at Sotto le Stelle del Cinema, a summer event in Piazza Maggiore featuring film screenings and interviews with industry protagonists. As autumn sets in, the roBOt Festival (October) and the Bologna Jazz Festival (November) infuse the city with diverse musical rhythms, catering to all tastes.

Water tank services near Bologna

You’ll need to fill up the freshwater tank of your campervan rental at the beginning of your trip, and empty your grey water at the end. This can be done at your campsite if they offer these services or at certain petrol stations. Near our station you can also find this address to fill up the freshwater tank:

  • Via Funo, 22, 40050 Funo BO

Parking in Bologna

If you plan to explore the city before embarking on your road trip from Bologna, navigating parking in the city can be a challenge. Similar to many medieval Italian cities, the entire historic centre is a ZTL, restricting transit without a special permit. To assist you, we’ve compiled a list of parking options just outside the city centre, perfect for leaving your motorhome or campervan rental for a few hours while you explore on foot:

  • Parcheggio Tanari at 17 Luigi Tanari Street: A few minutes from the city centre, this parking is free when used with a bus ticket. Display your bus ticket to the staff to avoid parking fees (max. 24 hours).
  • Parcheggio Staveco at Viale Enrico Panzacchi 10: Paid parking but very convenient for a quick walk to the city centre. Note that parking is not guaranteed on busy days and weekends.
  • Parcheggio Antistadio at Via Andrea Costa: This parking is free with a public transportation pass but is farther from the centre (3 km on foot or 15 minutes with bus lines 14 or 21).

Camping near Bologna

Hire a motorhome or campervan in Bologna and venture into the city and its surroundings. Just beyond the city centre, you’ll find several rest areas where you can comfortably stay overnight with your holiday home on wheels before embarking on explorations of the nearby nature and villages. Discover the ideal spot for your needs with roadsurfer spots. The app version also offers the convenience of selecting from various pre-established routes or crafting your own itinerary by saving your preferred rest stops.
