Arrival by train, car or plane

By train

Trento is connected with direct fast trains to Verona, Bologna, Venezia, Roma, Napoli, and München Hbf. The main train station is Trento Centrale.
If you don’t depart from any of those cities, it is likely you will have to change your train in Verona Porta Nuova.
Time tables and prices are available in the websites of Trenitalia (https://www.trenitalia.com/en.html), OBB (https://www.oebb.at/en/), Deutsche Bahn (https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml) and Trainline (https://www.thetrainline.com/it).

By car

The easiest way to reach Trento by car is the Autostrada del Brennero A22 / E45: exit at “Trento Sud” if you come from the south or “Trento Nord – Interporto” if you come from the north.

By plane

Trento does not have an airport: the nearest three in Italy are the Aeroporto Valerio Catullo in Verona (https://www.aeroportoverona.it/), the Aeroporto Internazionale Marco Polo in Venezia (https://www.veneziaairport.it/ ) and the Aeroporto G. Marconi in Bologna (https://www.bologna-airport.it/en/welcome-to-bologna-airport/?idC=62175#section-mbl-form).

  • Flying to Verona (VRN): From the Valerio Catullo airport to Trento, you need to reach the train station Verona Porta Nuova. You can take the Aerobus 199 (https://www.aeroportoverona.it/en/transport/aerobus.html) or other ATV line (https://www.atv.verona.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/EN/IDPagina/90?54c8be6e30eed) which leaves every 20 minutes from the airport. The ticket can be bought on board, and costs 6€.
    Then take a train to Trento: see “By train” – the train trip should last approximately 1 hour, and you won’t have to change train.
  • Flying to Venezia (VCE): From the Marco Polo airport, you would then need to reach the train station Venezia Mestre (Mestre-Stazione FF.SS.): you can take the bus 15 (for more information and timetables see HERE), which leaves every 30 minutes from the airport. The ticket can be bought at the bus stop, and costs 8€. Then take a train to Trento: see “By train” – the train trip should last approximately between 1 hour 55 minutes, if you pass through Verona (if possible, book with a good advance the OBB Eurocity, so you won’t have to change; this, however, only runs once a day, leaving Venezia Mestre at 14:02), and 3 hours 20 minutes, if you pass through Bassano del Grappa (this alternative is in general not recommended; if you can’t take the OBB, book a trip with change in Verona Porta Nuova).
  • Flying to Bologna (BLQ): From the G. Marconi airport, you would then need to reach the train station “Bologna centrale”. You can take Aerobus-BLQ (for more information and timetables see HERE, which leaves every 11 minutes from the airport.
