In fact online it is possible to buy the admission for 1 day at € 15 and for all the days of the event at € 28. At the door the cost is € 20 for 1 day and € 33 for all days.

Reaching Verona is possible in three different ways. That is:
By train it is possible to reach the Verona Porta Nuova station on the Milan-Venice railway line. From here you can take the shuttle bus that is available during the days of the event to reach the fair. The city airport is Catullo located 10 km away from the fair. By car you can reach your destination via the A22 and A4 motorways.
But that’s not all: for accomadation I recommend contacting La Casetta di Tiziana B & B. This is located near the fairground and costs 60 € per night. Alternatively, you can book at the Giulietta e Romeo hotel near the Verona Arena. The cost of the stay is about € 80 per room.
