Departing and arriving by train:

The elevator on binari 4 and 5 is the white set of doors behind the waiting room The elevator on binari 4 and 5 is the white set of doors behind the waiting room
On the binari these staircases lead to and from the main passage way On the binari these staircases lead to and from the main passage way

You can find out which binario/platform your train will be departing from using the electronic indicators.
Make sure you're looking at ‘Partenze’ departures and not 'Arrivia' arrivals - it’s easy to confuse the two.
The main departure board is on the wall of the main hall, above the ticket desks.

There are also paper departure 'Partenze' posters, which list all the trains in consecutive order - though they include trains only running on certain days of the week
If you're on a day trip to Verona you can use these posters to check the times of your return trains, before you head off into the city.

If the electronic departure information is different to the paper departure posters, then ignore the posters and follow the info on the electronic screens!

Transferring between the trains and the exits/entrance:

Most of the binari (platforms/tracks) at Verona Porta Nuova are linked to the main station building by two passage ways.
Though this choice of passage ways won't be particularly obvious - especially when arriving by train

At one end of each binario (platform/track), at the rear of trains arriving from Venice, at the front of trains arriving from Bologna, Milan and Trento, is a lift / elevator, which leads down to one of these passage ways
So when arriving by train there’s no need to follow the crowd and use the stairs which lead down town to the main passage, if you have luggage etc.
Instead take the longer, but step-free route.

When departing by train and accessing the binario / platforms from the departure hall, don’t head down the main passage if you want to use the lifts.
Follow the signs that you will lead you to the alternative passage way, that's to the left of the ticket hall.

Boarding Express Trains at Verona Porta Nuova station:

Taking an express train from Verona Porta Nuova train station has just become a lot easier.
Where to wait on the binari (platforms/tracks) for easy boarding into the coaches, which house your reserved seats on the train, used to be guess work.
Now red electronic screens have been installed on the binario/platforms used by the long distance trains.

These screens, indicate which carrozza/carriage/coach number will be located adjacent to each screen when a Frecce, EC or Italo train arrives at the platform/binario.

If you will be taking a Frecce, EC or Italo train, the carrozza number your seat will be located in, is printed on your ticket.
So now you’ll know where to wait on the binari/platform for easy access to your seat.

Boarding Regionale Trains at Verona Porta Nuova station:

If you’ll be taking a Regionale train then wait anywhere on the platform – though try and avoid the crowds.
Don’t forget to stamp your ticket in a machine before boarding a Regionale (R/RV) train.

The station’s exceptionally large forecourt is dominated by a newly expanded bus station and taking the bus to the city centre avoids the need to negotiate the busy roads.
