Bergamo to Bardolino

Will be travelling from Bergamo to Bardolino by train on 5 September. I thought we had to get train to Peschiera del Garda with change at Brescia, then bus. However when I look at the train timetable there only seem to be a couple of early morning trains that mention Brescia the others all seem to stop at Treviglio and leave about 5 minutes to change train - yikes!

I am confused as no posting that I have seen mentions going via Treviglio.

Any clarification much appreciated

Hi!

There are three trains between 8.00 and 12.00 without a change in Treviglio but in the afternoon there's one nearly every hour.

Should you choose to change in Treveglio make sure your Bergamo train gets to Treviglio Centrale and not to Treviglio Ovest, otherwise you'll have to get a bus or walk to Treviglio Centrale.

Alternatively you could take the shuttle bus from the airport to Brescia, then train to Peschiera del Garda

Thank you all so much for your help. We will be staying in Bergamo for a couple of days would you recommend returning to airport to get the bus to Brescia or getting the train from Bergamo?

If you are staying in Bergamo first could you not just time your journey so that you get one of the trains that actually change at Brescia.

Yes that is what we had been thinking of doing it was just when the bus was mentioned that i thought there was some special reason for this? Also I realise now that if i put Bergamo to Brescia and then Brescia to Persch Del Garda into train timetable search I get a much better and clearer selection than just entering Bergamo to Persch Del Garda. So thanks again for all your help.

just on the off chance we are heading to Venice after Bardolino train or bus and where would be the best departure point?

To get to Venice from Bardolino you would need to take the bus or a taxi back to Peschiera del Garda then the train.

You can buy the train tickets on the day. Bus tickets can be bought at the station in Peschiera del Garda.
