All trains also call at: Peschiera de Garda
If you want to make a day trip from Verona to Lake Garda by taking a train to Desenzano del Garda, then target these trains and ignore the Frecce trains.
If you want to be spontaneous and book last minute at the station, then the Frecce trains are a very pricey option, for such a comparatively short journey.
14 - 18 x trains per day
Book early and save: No (not on these trains)
Tickets will cost the same price if purchased at the station immediately before departure.
These Regionale Veloce trains are always cheaper than the faster Frecce trains; you can save a minimum of €5.
They'll be more than €10 cheaper, if you'll be booking last minute at the station just before your journey - hence our suggestion that it's not worth taking those Frecce trains for this journey.

After midday the departures are hourly, but the morning service of these Regionale trains is much more sparse.
On Monday to Fridays there are no departures usually scheduled between 09:43 and 12:43 and at weekends there are no departures usually scheduled between 09:43 and 11:43
Though as explained on our Italian Train Travel Guide this lack of late morning departures is fairly typical in Italy.
This train service is operated by Trenord and not Trenitalia.
The railway line is close to the southern shore of Lake Garda, but despite that, there are no views over it to be seen to the east of Desenzano.
