Exit the airport by the flyover (See airport map) and follow the directions for the A14 Autostrada BOLOGNA-TARANTO. Autostrada road signs are green.
The distance is less than 2 km. Just before the entrance to the autostrada you will find traffic merging from your left and traffic lights.
Pass through the lights and look for a barrier showing tickets and displaying a green light. This is normally on the extreme right.
