what are the train options to riva del garda from the milan airport?

by facker1980 Online Now Feb 5, 2011 at 7:03 AM

I'm going to do an elderhostel/road scholar trip to the Lake district in Sept 2011. We will be starting out in Riva del Garda. We would like to fly into and out of Milan. How can I get to Riva del Garda by train from the Milan airport?

Thanks,
Fran A.

    hy,
    there'is not a railstation in Riva, the closer is in Rovereto, on the Brenner line, around 20 kms from Riva. There is bus service that connects Rovereto to Riva. Timetables here: gardatrentino.it/en/Bus-time...

    Arriving from Milano it is also possible to get off at Desenzano, Peschiera or Verona then take the A.P.T.V. bus service to Riva del Garda.
    Timetables here: tech.atv.verona.it/atv_www/o... and here: tech.atv.verona.it/atv_www/o...

    Italian trains here: ferroviedellostato.it/homepa...

    Ps: which airport? Milan has three ones...:)
    Ciao, Marco

    But going up to Rovereto (the closest station) means another leg of your trip: change train in Verona.
    If you take the bus from Peschiera del Garda (or the same going back from verona, with more runs), it's one less change.

    The closest airport to Riva del Garda is Verona. It is about 1/1/2 hours drive. Riva does have train station. It takes about 45 minutes by train to get to Verona but not sure how long it would take to get to Milan but know it is much further.
