ciao*   bye
buona giornata   have a nice day
buon pomeriggio*   have a nice afternoon
buona serata   have a nice evening
buonanotte   good night
addio   farewell

 * Note that ciao and buon pomeriggio can also be used as greetings.

Until we meet again…

a tra poco   see you in a little bit
a presto   see you soon

ci sentiamo (presto / dopo)
ci vediamo (presto / dopo)
a più tardi
