Buses to and from Verona Airport (VRN)
Verona Airport handles both domestic and international flights to and from a variety of destinations. It consists of two terminal buildings. One terminal is dedicated to arrivals, while the other is for departures. Besides many useful amenities within the terminals, the airport offers excellent bus transportation services.
The bus stops at the airport are easily located outside of the Arrivals terminal. Here passengers will find the Aerobus, and these buses travel to the Verona Railway Station. This railway station is also known as the Central Station, or the Porta Nuova. Buses leave from the airport every twenty minutes, and are available up to 11:10 at night. The first bus departs from the airport at 5:40 in the morning. The Aerobus is also available every day of the week. A one-way bus ticket will cost €4.50.
Passengers who want to travel to the airport from Porta Nuova can also catch the Aerobus. The time schedules are the same as the buses leaving from the airport, with the first bus departing at 5:40 in the morning, and the last at 11:10 at night. Costs for a one-way ticket are the same.
The second option for transport by bus offered by Verona Airport is the Door-to-Door Shuttle Services. Most passengers find this option an extremely convenient and comfortable way of traveling to or from the airport. With this service, passengers are taken directly from the airport and dropped off at their hotels or residences; and visa versa, passengers can be collected at their location and brought to the airport by the shuttle bus. Transportation is offered to and from many of the cities surrounding the airport, such as Venice, Lake Garda, Bergamo, Cortina, d’Ampezzo and Padova.
The Verona Airport Shuttle Direct services are available every day of the week, and cost less than a conventional airport taxi. Take note that these are not private vehicles, and you will share the shuttle with other passengers, therefore, the shuttles usually work around a set schedule at designated times. However, this does not normally pose any problems for travelers, and there are many advantages to taking an airport shuttle. When taking a shuttle, one does not have to worry about which is the best route to take to the airport, nor worry about finding and paying for airport parking. For these reasons many passengers prefer to take the shuttle rather than their own vehicle to the airport. The Shuttle Service must be booked in advance, and this can be done over the internet from the official airport website.
Traveling by bus in Verona City itself is quite efficient and convenient. The city buses are marked as AMT, and are colored orange. Bus passengers must buy their ticket before catching the bus, and they can be purchased from newsagents or from tobacco shops (tabaccherie). These shops are often indicated by a large, white ‘T’. All tickets must be stamped, or validated, on the bus. They are valid for 60 minutes from the time of stamping. More information can be obtained from AMT, at 045 887 1111.
There are also blue colored buses. These are regional buses which travel to areas such as Lake Garda and the Veronese mountains. The regional buses depart from the bus station outside the Porta Nuova Railway Station in Verona. Tickets for travel on these buses can be purchased at the bus station. Passengers can find out more information by contacting APT – Azienda Provinciale Trasporti, at 045 800 4129.
Passengers arriving at the airport can also make enquiries for bus transportation at the information desk in the Arrivals terminal.
