Florence to Bologna

We will be staying in Florence for a few days and want to see Bologna. Is that a possible day trip or should we plan on staying a night in Bologna. Also, train or bus?

downtown Bologna is fun at night, like Las Ramblas. There are a number of historic sites, train station is in downtown area. I enjoyed it and want to go back.

It is possible, but time will be a bit limited. The train is handy, it is easy to walk from the station to the center of town. Maybe 15 min.

Most of the interesting sights are in the center of town. the leaning towers, the church, piazza, covered sidewalks.

Check train schedules when in Florence and go enjoy!
Not sure about the bus, but usually the bus station is right next to the train station (except in Siena!) I'd suggest train for the quickest journey.

Ideally stay overnight but if you can't go anyway. I was there on business recently and really like the town. I'd take the train its easier and the station is not far from the historical centre.
