Good to Know

The Regionale Veloce (RV) trains tend to be around 20 mins faster than the Regionale (R) trains.

During the day there is usually a RV and/or R train departure in most hours, but on Mon-Friday mornings there is a three hour gap between departures.

Though as explained our Italian Train Travel Guide this lack of late morning departures is fairly typical in Italy.

Option 2: taking the EC trains

SMTJ has singled out these EuroCity trains as they tend to be cheaper than the Frecce trains which also travel between Verona and Trento; and they're less than 4 mins slower.

So these trains can be the best option for Verona to Trento journeys if you can book in advance and don't mind having to travel by a specific train.

Between 09:04 and 17:02 they depart from Verona every other hour.

However, if you will be using a InterRail or Eurail pass in Italy, avoid these trains and take the alternative Regionale (R/RV) trains instead.
