***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear all, When considering public transports to/from Riva del Garda, you have two other options in order to reach Riva del Garda from Milan Centrale railways station (and viceversa), other than Milan-Verona-Rovereto by train + Rovereto-Riva del Garda by bus or taxi (default route). Depending on your flight arrangements you can consider these two alternative routes: a) from Milan Centrale to Brescia by train (Brescia is between Milan and Verona, Bus station in Brescia is nearby the railways station) and then take a direct bus (about 2 hours) from Brescia to Riva del Garda (while a taxi from Brescia will probably be very expensive). Here is the timetable for the bus, unfortunately in Italian only: http://www.gardatrentino.it/docs/download.asp?ID=41 Riva del Garda stop is "RIVA-autostazione" (bus station). Please note information on the headings of the timetable columns: "Giorn" (or not specified) means everyday, "Fest" means only on Sundays and public holidays", "Fer" means everyday but Sundays and public holidays. You can buy your ticket at the bus station in Brescia and, when travelling back, at the tobacconist in Via Dante 46, in Riva del Garda. b) from Milan Centrale to Verona by train (bus station - tickets there - is nearby the train one) and then take a bus (about 2h 20mins) from Verona to Riva del Garda (a taxi from Verona will probably be very expensive). Here is the timetable for the bus, unfortunately in Italian only: http://www.gardatrentino.it/docs/download.asp?ID=39 Please note information on the headings of the timetable columns, as above in option (a). Please consider that this route may take longer than the default route. Unfortunately buses on route (a) run only a few times in a day and allows less flexibility than the Verona & Rovereto route. But if you're lucky enough you can save time and probably money (and enjoy the western Garda landscape). Hope this helps. Have a safe & nice journey.
