Bologna Centrale at 4:20AM

I will be travelling from Munich to Cinque Terre (Vernazza).

My first train from Munich will arrive at Bologna at 4:20AM.

My next train from Bologna until Vernazza will depart at 6:20AM.

Is Bologna Centrale safe at dawn? Because I have 2 hours transit at Bologna (from 4:20 AM until 6:20AM)

The station bar opens at 5:00 a.m., the ticket windows at 5:45 a.m., the newsstand/tobacconist at 6:00 a.m.

The food/beverage vending machines are accessible 24/7 (except when out of order).

WanGamer, you have started 4 separate threads on traveling from Munich to Vernazza. Each with the same question. In every one of them experts have advised you not to go through Bologna at 4:20 am, but to catch the same City Night Line train to Florence, arriving at 6:30am. Your trip to CT is much easier from there.

Why are you ignoring this good advice and persisting in your plans to get off in Bologna?

I once arrived in Bologna Centrale at about midnight from Florence and because I was with three other (larger) guys I felt pretty safe. There were however a few shady looking characters hanging around the station so I would definitely NOT feel safe hanging about on my own for 2 hours at that time.

Gaz, good to see someone promoting the red tins to the world!

The 07.00 train from Florence gets you to Vernazza at exactly the same time as the 06.28 from Bologna.
