HOW TO REACH MOVIELAND
The park is located on the east coast of Lake of Garda, in Lazise.

From the A22 Modena-Brennero, you will have to take the exit Affi. In both cases, you will have to follow the signs for Movieland Park (as there will be many of them). Once you arrive, you can easily leave your car at a small fee in the large parking lot of the park.
If you go to Movieland by train, get off at Peschiera station and hop on the free shuttle: it runs all season long at fixed times. Full schedule available on the website: canevaworld.it
