(from Piazza Maggiore)
. CSAEO is about 10 minutes from Piazza Maggiore, the central square of Bologna. Take via Ugo Bassi and walk 200 metres until you arrive at an intersection with traffic lights; then turn right (via Nazario Sauro) and walk 200 metres, until you see another intersection with traffic lights: the street on your right hand, before the traffic lights, is via Santa Maria Maggiore.

(from Railway Station). CSAEO is 10-15 minutes from the Railway Station. Walk out the station and turn left. At Piazza di Porta Galliera (a large square with an arch), turn right and take via Galliera: walk 300 metres and, when you see a church on your right hand, turn right (via de' Preti). After 100 metres via de' Preti changes its name and becomes via Santa Maria Maggiore.
