How to reach Trento
The nearest major airport is Verona (VRN), which has many flights to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris, and London. Traveling from the Verona airport to Trento is easy, via train (about one hour) or bus.
Two main train lines reach Trento: the Brennero line (connecting to Rome to the south, and Innsbruck and northern Europe to the north) and the Valsugana line to Venice. Timetable details from Trenitalia website.
After the Workshop, chartered shuttle buses will take interested participants directly to Geneva for OHBM 2016.
