Getting to Bolzano


Plane

The closest airports are Verona and Innsbruck. Failing those then visitors may like to try Milan, Venice or Bergamo or even Rome or Munich. Bolzano does have a small airport, but it does not currently serve international flights.


Train

Important Beware that in Italy you must validate your train ticket. This means that if the ticket does not specify the date and time of the departure of your train then you must stamp the ticket using a small machine found on most platforms and throughout most stations before boarding the train. Unfortunately being a tourist will not help you to avoid the fine if you don't.
