Apllication and cancellation rules
Locations and Transportation
Foresteria universitaria – Hostel
From Forli Airport
If you have the possibility of directly arriving at the Forlì airport “Luigi Ridolfi”, just at 3 minutes walk from the airport there is a bus stop where you can take the line 7 FIERA bus which takes you at “Libertà-Scuole” stop. From here you can choose two options: on the opposite side of the street there’s another bus stop called “Libertà-Scuole” and there you could take the line 4 CAVA and get off at the Piazza Saffi stop and then walk two minutes. The other option is to walk directly from the bus stop in less than 15 min you should arrive to Foresteria Universitaria.
From Bologna Airport
From the Bologna Airport it is recommended to get the Marconi Express train or the bus, which, from the airport, takes you directly to the central train station of Bologna. There you can buy the train ticket Bologna Centrale – Forlì and there are several options: regional trains, frecciarossa (high speed train), and intercity trains. We suggest to get a regional train whose frequency is between 30 min and 10 min which is less than the other train options and is also cheaper, it costs 6,80€. Once arrived at the Forlì train station you can buy the bus tickets “zona 1” (1,30€ and it’s yellow) either in the station or at the bus stop which is in front of the station. The bus line is the 4 CAVA and leaves from the B pensiline, you need to get off at Piazza Saffi, then your destination is at 2 minutes walk.
To go from the hostel to the university we suggest to walk to the bus stop “Libertà-Scuole” in “Viale della Libertà” and take the bus line 7 “RONCO” or “Quartiere Ronco“, it takes you in front of the university.
Forlì is also mostly known, as a part of Romagna, for its vast culinary tradition. Starting from the “piadina” and “crescione”, a particular type of flatbread usually made with white flour, lard or olive oil, salt and water cooked in a traditional terracotta dish called “testo”.
Romagna is also famous for its strong wines such as Sangiovese (pronounced san-joe-vei-zay), a red medium-bodied wine on the high end of the scale when it comes to alcohol, perfect to eat with a good steak. Another typical but with very different taste is Albana, a white fairly light bodied wine with good acidity and contains considerable residual sugar.
