Directions to US Army Garrison Italy (Caserma Ederle)

Caserma Ederle is located on the east side of Vicenza, approximately 3 kilometers from the Vicenza East (EST) exit off Autostrada (A4) which runs from Venice to Milan. The Autostrada is a toll road and similar to U.S. interstate highways. Caserma Ederle is tucked into the city's Southeastern corner, a short bus ride or even a leisurely walk from downtown.


Vicenza does not have an airport capable of receiving PCS soldiers. Venice (Marco Polo) Airport is the primary port of entry to be used when coordinating commercial flights to Vicenza. All soldiers assigned to Vicenza should notify the gaining unit of his/her flight information. Please call the gaining unit using DSN Telephone Numbers through the post nearest you.

Although mass transit is available, transportation to post is provided by USAG Italy. 

Follow these instructions:

  • The Airport Liaison at the (Venice) Marco Polo Airport is your point of contact Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on the weekends. The Liaison duty uniform is the Army Combat Uniform (ACU).  
  • Look for two US Military Community Courtesy Phones located at each end of the baggage claim area and for the US Military Airport Liaison staff. The courtesy phones are on the column adjacent to the Airport Meeting Point sign in the Domestic Arrivals area and in the International Arrivals area.  There is also a DSN courtesy phone directly across from the US Military Liaison Booth in the lobby area beyond the cafe.  Sample SETAF (ABN) and US Army Garrison (USAG), Vicenza, emblems denote the Courtesy Phones.  The phones automatically dial the Central Processing Facility (CPF) during duty hours or the USAG Italy Staff Duty outside duty hours to assist you in arranging transportation to post. 
  • If you have not coordinated a ride with your sponsor, the Vicenza US Military Community Shuttle provides transportation to and from post 7 days a week. This shuttle is a commercial vehicle and in no way resembles military transportation. This vehicle looks exactly like the other buses parked at the Airport with the exception of a sign on the side door and front windshield which states "MILITARY SHUTTLE". The Shuttle schedule is posted by the courtesy phones and at the Liaison Booth. Upon exiting arrivals take a right, continue past the café; directly behind the café take a left through the seating area. The Military Liaison Booth will be on your right as you continue out of the exit doors next to the booth. Cross the first covered patio/drive thru and then the second to reach the bus. The window of the bus will display a sign "Military Shuttle." The shuttle runs between 5:30 a.m. and 9:20 p.m. Monday through Friday. Weekends, U.S. and Local National Holidays the shuttle runs between 5:30 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. You must be outside to find the bus 15 minutes prior to its departure. For transportation outside of normal duty hours, use the Courtesy Phones to request assistance.
  • If the courtesy phones are not working and US Military Airport Liaison staff is unavailable to provide assistance, purchase a 10.00 Euro phone card from the machines in the lobby and place the call from one of the public phones.  During duty hours dial 0444 71 6996, 0444 71 8706, or 0444 71 8706 and after duty hours dial 0444 71 7867 or 0444 71 6230 to contact the staff Duty Officer. A currency exchange booth is in the Venice Airport lobby.
  • Retrieve pets that have traveled as cargo at the over-sized luggage window located near the baggage claim area. 
  • If for some reason you are routed to Aviano Air Base and arrive there without prior transportation arrangements, ask Aviano Air Base for assistance.
