hi i was wondering what will be the cheapest way to get to bologna from paris. ive run searched on many low cost airlines (ryan, easyjet, airberlin, myair, virgin express, skyeurope, jet2 etc) and most of them doesnt fly paris-bologna?
is there any flights (low cost kind) that flies paris-bologna or would it be cheaper to take trains instead? time is not an issue..would it be scenic / countrysides etc that i can treasure if i took trains?
what are you guys thought on this
thanks for any replies/recommedation. appreciate it.
It might be a good idea to check www.eurolines.com and go by bus as if time is no problem then you can jump off!!!!! as and when.
Have a good trip.

the low cost airport for bologna is forlì (about 60 km from bologna); windjet is a low cost company flying between paris and forlì. check www.volawindjet.it: if u book quite ahead of time u can find flights as cheap as € 1 (then if u add taxes it can cost € 100).
then from forlì to bologna u can catch a train, it's about € 3,50 one way.
You can check train to http://www.trenitalia.it/en/index.html but i think it's easier to fly to bologna whit a low cost
I would definitely say train it! The Italian countryside is nice, but the French is even nicer! Plus, you can stop off wherever takes your fancy along the way!
Train fares in Italy are very good value plus it's a great way to meet new people.
You could also fly from Bologna Fiorli to London Stansted for as low as £0.99 if you book early enough. Sometimes, they even give the flights away free. Then you could take the highspeed train from London to Paris!
Oh god, I'm a bit scattered today should have said that those flights are with Ryanair.
Better go and get some coffee ...
thanks for the replies
yes sam there's flight to bologna from ryanair didnt notice that thanks. ive decided to fly to milan (instead of bologna now ) but the thought of beautiful countryside kind of tempting so i might as well train it?! does trenitalia work? (which im sure it is seem very good site) i tried some locations but couldnt seem to get the pricing? hm i must be doin somethin wrong
The trenitalia site is very frustrating Kandii. It never seemed to be working when I was travelling around Italy, although they've updated it recently. Trains between the major cities in Italy are very regular, and I found that just turning up at the station and getting the next available one never left me stranded too long.
http://www.seat61.com is a useful site if you're planning on taking some trains around Europe.
Hope that helps a bit
Just checked out http://www.trenitalia.com and it seems to be working at the moment.
If you select Timetable, enter your depart and arrival stations and click Go, it should present you with a list of train times. On the right hand side of the list, there is a column marked Buy. If you click on the icon beside the time you want, the price will be displayed on screen.
If you still have problems, let me know and I'll look up the any fares for you.
