Travelling to Trento
There is no airport in Trento, so if you are planning to travel by
plane, you should try to arrive either in Verona (90 km), Venice (153
km), or Milan (213 km); in order of importance, Milan, Venice,
Verona. Verona is considerably closer to Trento than Milan but there
are many more flights into Milan. If travelling from outside Europe,
consider flying to Verona via London.
- Milan. Two international airports:
"Linate" (LIN) mainly for European flights,
"La Malpensa" (MPX) overseas. Bus service to
Milano Centrale railway station takes about 25 minutes
from Linate and 1 hour 15 minutes from La
Malpensa. From Milano Centrale railway station trains
to Trento via Verona take 2 hours and a half. Some trains are
direct; if not, change in Verona. We strongly recommend that, in
order to avoid lines at the railway station, visitors continuing
to Trento by rail purchase their tickets at the railway ticket
offices in the airport upon arrival.
- Venice. Has international flights. Bus service to railway
station in Venezia-Mestre leaves every 20/60 minutes, and
it takes 20 minutes. Trains from Venezia-Mestre railway
station to Trento via Verona take 2 hours.
- Verona. There are daily flights to and from Paris, London,
Frankfurt, Munich, Barcelona, Madrid, and Vienna, as well as
Rome and other major Italian cities. The shuttle service to
Verona Porta Nuova railway station leaves every 20
minutes, and it takes 20 minutes. From there direct trains to
Trento take 50 minutes.
Trains. You can check the Italian Railways
official site to find the information you need. Please note that
train tickets must be stamped with the yellow machines available at
the platform (binario) entrance before getting on the train. In
buying your ticket you should specify the arrival station (Trento),
the train you are planning to take (some InterCity trains
require a supplement that is more expensive if purchased on the train)
and the class: 1st (prima) or 2nd
(seconda). First class is more comfortable and about 60%
more expensive. An alternative possibility is to fly to Munich
International Airport and to proceed to Trento by train.
For any further information please ask your Travel Agent.
