Verona to Lake Garda by train

Desenzano del Garda/Sirmione is the train station belonging to the town of Desenzano del Garda, which lies on the southwestern shore of Lake Garda. The train from Verona takes just 19 minutes and there are over twenty daily services to Desenzano del Garda/Sirmione station, so you'll be exploring beautiful Lake Garda in no time. The first train departs at 05:45 and the final train in the opposite direction departs at 23:59, so you can easily enjoy a day at the lake without worrying about missing the last train back!

Trains to Lake Garda are run by Trenord, the company responsible for passenger rail services in the Lombardy region. While the train won't have the creature comforts of Trenitalia's high-speed Frecciarossa fleet, they're cheap and will get you from A to B with no fuss. You'll arrive ready to enjoy the crystal blue waters of the lake and its fascinating surroundings. Head to Scaligero Castle in the nearby town of Sirmione for an authentic slice of history. Located on the Sirmione peninsula in the historic town centre, the castle is one of the best-preserved in Italy.

The closest beach to the train station is Spiaggia di Rivoltella - around 3km away as the crow flies. But there's plenty more to do than lay about on a beach, so have a read of our guide to Lake Garda for inspiration.
