Old Railway Station

The historical railway line on Lake Garda

The Verona-Affi-Caprino/Affi-Garda railway was an Italian railway line that connected Verona to Lake Garda and the slopes of Mount Baldo. The first section was opened in 1889, while the whole railway was decommissioned in 1959 due to lack of investment and competition from road transport.

The Garda-Affi section was the first to be decommissioned, in July 1956, followed by the Caprino-Domegliara section in December 1956. The Verona-Domegliara section was converted into a trolleybus on the new Valpolicella road.

The last train departed on 30 April 1959.

Made possible thanks to the will of a promoting committee and supported by many mayors of the area, it represents an important step in the social and industrial development of the country.
