Bologna to Bari by train

There is a choice of two express services when taking a train from Bologna to Bari:
1 - The more frequent Frecce services are also faster, despite the lack of a high speed line; but that speed tends to come at a higher price.
2 - There also InterCity services, which are slower because they make more station calls.

Routes you can take to go from Bologna to Bari (for ferries to Patras, on to Athens)
