There are armrests every two seats which isn’t ideal (three seats is usually the ideal for a person to laid) but it is still possible to get some rest. – Paul

VRN Airport Overview

verona airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Verona Villafranca Airport.

What to Expect

The small terminal at Verona Airport (code: VRN) handles year-round and seasonal European routes. Most eateries are located landside and there are more shops, including duty-free, on the airside. Free WiFi helps pass the time. Economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

The airport seems to close nightly, but travellers who arrive before closing, around 10:00PM, may be able to stay inside overnight. Seats are equipped with armrests, so you may prefer a sleeping bag or travel mat for the floor. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See the Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
