Verona Airport to Malcesine Italy

We are flying to Verona - Villafranca Airport in September. We are hoping to xfer to Malcesine by local transport, is it possible to get a bus direct from the Airport? A timetable, fares or link would be really helpful.

We have read that an Airport shuttle will take us into Verona and the local bus will take us to Malcesine - not too sure how long the journey takes!

If anyone has done this journey prices of taxis/hotel xfers or

any information at all would be much appreciated.

Hi, first of all check with your hotel as many will offer you a transfer service at a very reasonable rate. A private transfer would be in the region of 270 euros for the return trip.

Otherwise, you would take the shuttle bus to Verona and then take the bus direct to Malcesine, this timetable is valid until 15th June, but will give you a good idea of times etc. The fare is about 5 euros each, single trip.

That's 10 Euros per person from Verona Villafranca Airport to Malcesine: 5 Euros for the airport bus to Verona Porta Nuova train station, PLUS 5 Euros for the long-distance bus from Verona Porta Nuova bus depot to Malcesine. Getting all the way to Riva del Garda costs the same.

Many thanks for the useful information and the copy of the bus timetable. I hope you mean €27 for the return transfer and not €270!

No - 270 euros for a return transfer Verona/Malcesine for two people, but hotels will offer the service at much cheaper rates.

Got it - thanks - we have enquired from a hotel and they seem to be charging €17 per person one way = €68 return for two!

Not possible. The distance is too far for the hotel to charge merely 17 Euros per person each way (unless perhaps they're using a staff member or a relative).

I personally know of another hotel in Malcesine who charge 40 euros per person return, so yes, it is very possible.

I guess it must be because so many people who don't drive take the frequent public bus service for 10 Euros per person, each way!!! A rate of 20 Euros per person each way is terrific for a private transfer.

Maybe the hotel just uses, for its guests, this service:
