Whether you’re headed from Verona to Milan at the end of an Italy trip so you can fly home, or you’re gearing up for a designer shopping excursion, the best way to get from Verona to Milan is by train.

It’s a relatively straight shot from east to west, covering 98 miles (158 km), and Trenitalia can  make the trip in less than 1.5 hours.

Frequent Trains from Verona to Milan

Trenitalia’s high-speed Alta Velocità (AV) trains serve both Verona Porta Nuova station and Milano Centrale station, making it easy to get from one to the other. What’s more, the AV trains from Verona to Milan are direct, meaning passengers don’t need to change trains along the way.

There are 29 trains departing Verona Porta Nuova each day headed for Milano Centrale, and the fastest connection on this route makes the trip in 1 hour 23 minutes. There are both Frecciarossa and Frecciabianca AV trains connecting the two cities, as well as Regionale trains, though the latter take just under two hours. Tickets range in price from $17-27.

Italo trains serve both Verona Porta Nuova and Milano Centrale, but in order to travel from one to the other you must book Verona-Bologna and Bologna-Milan separately and change trains in Bologna. Verona-Bologna takes 50 minutes, and Bologna-Milan takes 1 hour 15 minutes.

Note that weekends and holidays typically mean less frequent service and sometimes longer travel times.
