Getting there & away
The main intercity bus station is in front of the train station, in an area known as Porta Nuova. Although buses serve many big cities, they are generally only a useful option for those needing to reach provincial localities not served by train.
Verona has rail links with Milan, Mantua, Modena, Florence and Rome. There are also regular trains serving destinations in Austria, Switzerland and Germany (10 daily to/from Munich). The trip to/from Venice is easiest by train (€6.10 to €14, 1¼ to 2¼ hours).
Verona-Villafranca airport (VRN; 045 809 56 66; www.aeroportoverona.it) is 12km outside town and accessible by APTV bus to/from the train station (€4.50, 15 minutes, every 20 minutes from 6am to 11pm). Flights arrive here from all over Italy and some European cities, including Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris. Ryanair flies in from several cities to Brescia (030 965 65 99; www.aeroportidelgarda.it) to the west. Airport buses (www.cgabrescia.it) connect the train station with Brescia airport (€11/16 one way/return, 45 minutes).
