Transfer from Bergamo airport to Riva del Garda

Hi.

I am traveling from Dublin to Riva Del Garda in June, but our flight is to Bergamo airport. We arrive late in the evening, and it doesn't appear that there is a bus/train late enough to get us there.

Does anyone know of any way to get to Riva from Bergamo?

Hi, if your flight is arriving too late to continue your journey by public transport, then it may be cheaper to stay overnight in Bergamo and continue to Riva the next day. Private transfers/taxis can be expensive. This link will help with the details of travelling to Lake Garda from Bergamo:

Alternatively, send an email to your hotel to ask if they provide a transfer service from the airport.

As mentioned above might be cheaper to stay overnight. A transfer with somebody like www.peschieratransfer.it will be €220 one way normal price. This company like taxi companies will put on a surcharge if the travel in the evening is beyond 9pm for that journey. Price is then €265

Hi, this link will again give you the basic information you will need. Unfortunately Riva del Garda is one of the furthest towns from Bergamo and you can expect the journey by public transport to take 3-4 hours.

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g187838-c151272/Lak…

For train information go to:

www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…

Private transfers are expensive http://taxi.limtours.it/ quote 200 euros each way for up to 4 people.

It might also be worth checking with your hotel to ask if they can arrange transfers for you, often when booked through hotels it can be a bit cheaper.

i am doing the same trip so we plan on travelling to desenzano that same day and staying there for one night. then travelling from there to riva by boat. it takes about 3 hours on the lake, and should be a nice trip. you can also travel by bus from desenzano to riva, maybe 2 hours? to get to desenzano the first evening get a bus to bergamo train station from the airport. they are pretty frequent. then train to desenzano. think it takes an hour.

If intending to go to Riva then you have the choice of Desenzano or Peschiera

It really depends when your flight gets in.

Generally a train from Bergamo to Desenzano (or Peschiera) takes 1h30+ and requires at least one change normally in Brescia or Treviglio

The last decent connection from Bergamo Train station to Desenzano is the 21:16 from Bergamo change at Brescia. Arrive Desenzano 22:50

The next service departing Bergamo at 22:20 requires a bus from Bergamo to Rovato then a train. Arrives Desenzano 01:51 - yes that is 10 to 2am.

The LN027 goes to Riva from Desenzano

and the 62-64 goes from Peschiera

…verona.it/atv_www/…62-64.pdf

The 62-64 service being quicker and more frequent

it would probably be easier to stay in bergamo for the night? Unless you want to spend a night in milan. No problem with directions, just adjust quickly to the Italian way!!! there will be lots of other tourists doing much the same trips so you can all help each other!
