How to get to Verona
If you're flying to
Verona's Valerio Catullo airport at Villafranca, 10km away, you
can get into the city by a regular APT bus from the
airport to the train station and Piazza Cittadella, near the
city centre. Otherwise, unless you're staying in the youth
hostel, you're only likely to need a bus if you don't fancy the
fifteen-minute walk from the train and bus stations to the
centre. To walk to the centre from here, turn right outside the
train station (keeping to the right-hand side of the road -
there are some busy junctions) then left at the main junction
with the broad Corso Porta Nuova, which leads straight to Piazza
Bra, site of the Arena and the hub of Verona. Bus tickets must
be bought before boarding the bus, either from the machines
alongside bay A or from the tabacchi inside the train station
ticket hall. They cost 0.77 and are valid for any number of
journeys within an hour.
The main tourist office is on the central Piazza Bra, within the
old town walls beside the Palazzo Municipale (Mon-Sat 9am-6pm;
tel 045.806.8680, www.verona-apt.net ). There is an additional
office at the train station (daily 9am-6pm; tel 045.800.0861)
and a room-finding service , Cooperativa Albergatori Veronesi (CAV),
at Via Patuzzi 5 (Mon-Fri 9am-6.30pm; tel 045.800.9844); Via
Patuzzi runs parallel to Via Leoncino off Piazza Gallieno in the
southeast corner of Piazza Bra. You can rent bikes in summer
from stalls in Piazza Bra. For Internet access, head for the
small shop on platform 1 at the train station (Mon-Sat
7.30am-7.30pm) or to Diesis , on via Sottoriva 15 (Mon-Thurs
11am-11pm, Fri & Sat 11am-midnight, Sun 3pm-8pm; 7.75 per hour).
The Verona-Villafranca airport, located just
outside the city is reachable via local buses and trains. City
buses for the airport depart from Porta Nuova every 20?.
