How to Reach Trento

The suggested route to reach Trento if you live too far away to use the train is to fly to Verona (Aeroporto Valerio Catullo, IATA code VRN). From the airport there is a bus every 20 minutes to the railway station (schedule and costs). By train there is a direct connection to Trento: it takes 1 hour on average. You may consider the flight to Venezia, Bologna, or Milano. Anyway the train transfer would require much more time since there are no direct connections to Trento. An alternative solution is to fly to Munich (Germany) and to reach Trento by train: it takes 4 hours and half.
