Guide to Venice Mestre Train Station
The primary train station in the Veneto city of Verona is Verona Porta Nuova, opened in 1852. The station was rebuilt twice - the second time because it was destroyed in World War II - and the current building dates from the late 1940s.
Verona Porta Nuova sees roughly 77,000 people pass through each day, and is a hub for Trenitalia’s high-speed Alta Velocità (AV) and other trains, Italo’s high-speed trains, and international trains. From Verona, travelers can reach cities and towns all over the Veneto region, major cities further afield in Italy, and countries like Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France, and even Russia, Poland, Belarus, and the Czech Republic.
The multi-storey station has a Sala Blu (assistance office for disabled travelers) on the same floor as the platforms as well as customer service for Trenitalia, Italo, and even the Austrian rail company ÖBB. Luggage storage and restrooms are on the ground floor, along with shops and eateries. The rest of the large building is largely taken up by offices.
The square outside Verona Porta Nuova station is a major bus terminal for the city and region, so it’s easy to get a bus from the station into central Verona or to other destinations in Veneto if needed. From the station into the city center is about ten minutes by bus.
