Trento is a city in the North of Italy, it's on the motorway leading to Innsbruck and Munich.

If you try to exit the autostrada too early, you might find yourself on a road that stops short, in the middle of nowhere, as Amylin finds here.

Hitchhiking out

South towards Verona, Modena E 45

Instead of the roundabout, it's better to walk a bit South and try the other motorway entry. You might be able to hitch a ride already on the SS12. From the city center, you can walk along Via Roberto da Sanseverino to reach a ramp and also another roundabout to hitch rides onto the SS12.

North towards Bolzano, Austria, Germany E 45

Take tram to Lavis from railwaystaton. The price is 1.80. To get to the petrol station(Autogrill) you need to walk on the way to Trento about 700 meters and cross the fence on the right.

EDIT 05/2013: There's construction work at the Paganella Est Autogrill right now, and I had to go through an open door and cross the construction site before I could enter the Autogrill through another closed but not locked gate. No idea when the construction work will be finished and if it'd be still passable or what workers might think of you if they see you ;) There's also a bus going to Lavis, but it brings you near the other train station, in the estern main part of the village. I had to walk for about an hour, better check the map before taking the bus.

Another option might be to stand at the small self-service gas station at the roundabout (see map), but not too much space for cars to stop. Marcel stood there 45 minutes on a sunday late morning in the rain until he got a ride heading north.

If you're into that sorta thing, for 15 euros you can take a train all the way to Kufstein, which is very close to the German border.

You can also try the "statale" going North, which is Via Brennero.

East, towards Padova, Venezia

See section "South towards Verona, Modena"

Hitchiking In

If you are dropped at the petrol station on the autostrada some kilometers North from Trento you can ask the staff if they can let you out. There is a tramway that takes you from Lavis to Trento for EUR 1,20.
