Getting there

  • Planes

    Verona and Innsbruck airports are two hours away by car. Lufthansa and Air Alps (www.airalps.com) fly to nearby Bolzano in four hours from London Heathrow. A stopover is required.
  • Trains

    It’s possible to travel from London to Innsbruck, just over the Austrian border, via Brussels. See www.europeanrail.com for more details.
  • Automobiles

    A car is ideal for getting to your next activity appointment on time | and scoping out hillside hamlets | but be prepared for frequent snowfalls and icy road conditions in the winter.
  • Taxis

    It’s best to book ahead; ask your hotel for details of local firms.
