Trento is served by a major line connecting central and northern Italy with Germany, which makes Trento well connected with Rome and Munich. If you are coming from Milan or Venice, you have to change train in Verona. From Trento station to our premises in Povo within the Physics Department of Trento University, you have to take a taxi or a local bus (see below).
In order to reach our premises in Povo you have to catch bus no. 5 or 5/ at the stop in front of the train station. You can buy bus tickets at a booth or by the newsagent in the station hall. With bus no. 5, get off at Povo Facoltà di Scienze stop (see map below), which is 300m away from the Physics Department. Go uphill until the roundabout, then straight on for 200m. The main entrance of the Physics Dept. is on the right hand side of the road. A few number of runs stop at Povo Pantè, refer to the map below for directions. With bus no. 5/, get off at Povo Sommarive stop, just in front of the Physics Dept. main entrance. Info and timetable of urban transport service in Trento: Trentino Trasporti
