Garda; days out to Milan, Flornece and Venice

I am going to Lake Garda in May staying at Hotel Eden in Garda. I'd prefer not to do the optional excursions provided by the travel firm but would like to visit Florence, Milan & Venice (trips offered by the travel co.) does anyone know how I can do this as I cannot find which train station is nearest the hotel. thanks

The nearest Train Station is Peschiera, not too far from Garda Town,

Venice and Milan and not too bad to get too, but feel Florence is too far for a day trip to do it justice

yes you need to get an early bus to peschiera, even on the train its a fair trip.

Dont forget to clip your ticket before getting on the train..also as you get on the bus.

a waterbus in venice will take you to st marks square....again a fair trip so this is why you need to allow plenty of time

Bear in mind the following.

By public transport you will need to take the 62-64 Bus. It takes about 30mins to get from Garda to the train station at Peschiera


If you take the more cheaper (but slower) Regional trains it will take about 2hrs to get to Venice. Cost €8 single (Eurostar 1h15 but €20 single)

So coming back the last bus from Peschiera to Garda departs 19:30

That means you have to get the last Regional train at 17:05

www.trenitalia.com for trains

If you miss the bus you will need a taxi. Taxi Peschiera have taxis on the rank at Peschiera train station often until late. Some of their operators speak english. A taxi to Garda will cost about €26+(to about €30)
