I would simply buy point to point tickets

Separate tickts:
Venice to Verona (11.50 Euro)
Verona to Lake Garda (Desenzano) (2.40 Euro, trains a couple times an hour)
Lake Garda to Milan (11 Euro)

are about the same cost as Venice-Milan ticket (23 Euro)

TYP.

I looked up the schedules on www.trenitalia.com. There is no need to pre-purchase tickets for these routes.

From Venice to Verona it's only about 1hr travel, and there are trains 2-3 times per hour. You can simply go to the train station when you wish to travel, buy a ticket, and get on the train.

Ditto for the other legs.

If you want to have tickets in hand beforehand, buy them at the train station a day ahead - but really no need.

Hi TYP - Are you planning to stay in Desenzano?

If not, most other places on the eastern side of the lake are accessible by bus from Verona - e.g Torre del Benaco, Malcesine, Riva ...

Hope this helps ...

No they don't all stop at this secondary station but many do. Train station is on top of a hill from the main town around the dock.
