Vinitaly, the most important international exhibition dedicated to the world of wine and spirits, returns to Verona from Sunday 6 to Wednesday 9 April 2014.
Vinitaly, is the event that more than any other has traced the evolution of the national and international wine system, helping to make wine one of the most captivating and dynamic realities in the primary sector.
With over 140,000 expected visitors and more than 4,100 exhibitors during the four days of the event, the traffic and parking system around the exhibition centre are organised and regulated to minimise disruption and maximise the time available for sector professionals.
Veronafiere: Viale del Lavoro 8 is only a 4-minute drive from the Verona Sud exit on the A4 “Serenissima” Motorway, about 4 minutes from Porta Nuova Railway Station and just 1.9 kilometres from Verona city centre.
During Vinitaly, the San Zeno and Cangrande gates in Viale del Lavoro are also joined by the Re Teodorico Gate, while the Giulietta & Romeo Gate in Viale dell’Industria near the junction with Via Roveggia is also operative. This is the recommended entrance gate for visitors arriving from the Verona Sud Motorway exit and the Tangenziale Sud (South Ring Road) going to the Multi-Storey Car Park (P4) and the Re Teodorico car Park (P7), which are both in Viale Olanda. This entrance gate is also suggested for arrivals by taxi.
During Vinitaly, the Exhibition Centre is open to visitors 9.30-18.30.
