How to get to Verona

Verona is very well connected by road and rail and has an international airport. If you cannot find a suitable flight to Verona then try Milan (Linate) and Venice from where there are frequent rail connections to Verona. Here is some information on airports, airlines, rail, and car hire which may be of use.

Airports

 

Verona airport

This is the most convenient and now there is a much better choice of flights from the UK by BA and Easyjet.
Half hourly bus service to Verona rail station costs 6 euros. Taxis 25-30euros into Verona town centre. So for 2 persons a taxi from the airport is about the same as getting the bus to the station and then a taxi from the station to your accomodation.

By Car Verona is at the crossroads of the North/South Brenner to Modena autostrada (motorway) and the East/West Milan to Venice motorway.
Parking Verona (as most cities) is not very car friendly in the historic centre. Parking is restricted. You can park in the street with a 'Verona Park' card which you buy (1 euro/hour) at a newsagent or bar.

Car Hire There are the usual car hire firms at the airports and railway stations. You can usually get a better deal by booking through your airline. We usually book online as and when we need a car rather than for the full stay as we find we don't need the car much at all.
