Change Train in Bologna

I'm booking a train from Florence SMN to Verona with a connection in Bologna . I notice that there is only 9 minute window in which to make the connection. How easy to change train at Bologna station for a person who don't know Italian?

Thanks so much for your help.

What train are you looking at? On Trenitalia, I can see only 3 Florence-Verona trains each day that require a change in Bologna, and the change time is quite a bit longer than 9 minutes.

If Trenitalia advertises a connection, it is possible. All stations have departure screens, similar to those at airports, showing departure time, train number (on your ticket for all fast trains), final destination (which may be beyond where you are going), and platform (binario).

There is also a direct transfer


It is very fast and the price acceptable
