Below you will find some indications on how to reach Trento.

By train

There are two main lines that reach Trento: the Brennero line (from Rome to Innsbruck) and the Valsugana line (from Venice to Trento). From Venice it may be faster to take a train to Verona and then from Verona to Trento.

By plane

Trento does not have a city airport, so you will have to choose among the following options (see the map below):

  • Verona Catullo Airport - 90 km from Trento: this airport is the best option to reach Trento, but it has direct flight connections only with the main European airports. The airport has a shuttle bus service with quick and frequent connections to the railway station of Verona. From there it takes about one hour to reach Trento by train. It is also possible to take a taxi directly from the airport to Trento, but it will be quite expensive (about 160 euros). If you are travelling by car from Verona airport, take the motorway A22, direction Brennero, from the entrance Verona nord.
  • Venezia Marco Polo - 125 km: the airport is connected to the nearby railway stations of Venice-Santa Lucia and Mestre-Venice by scheduled bus services. It takes about two hours and a half to reach Trento from Venice (most of the times you have to change in Verona). By car take the SS14 and then continue on A27, take the exit direction Milano/Bologna and continue on motorway A4 Milano-Venezia, direction Milano. After 70 km take the exit Brennero/Verona direction Brennero and take the A22.
