Nimes to Venice area

Hi,

I'm planning a side trip/long weekend in Venice, staying with an italian family somewhere between Marco Polo and Treviso airports. Anyone know the best way to travel from Nimes/Montpellier/Marseille to either of these airports or is it practical by train?

Many thanks,

J.

Nimes to Venice by train will take something around 14 hours via Dijon and the overnight train into Italy from there.

The journeys from Marseille and anywhere else in that region are not dissimilar. A daytime journey via Nice and Milan involves numerous changes of train and an all day journey as well.

Air Corsica flies between Marseille and Venice but not every day.

It might be worth looking into flying from Marseille to Milan with Twinjet. They have three flights a day but on weekdays only. Then you can take a train from Milan to Venice or Treviso which takes around 2hrs 30 minutes.

I hope that helps.

Alternatively you could take the direct train from Nimes to Lyon which takes under an hour and a half and then an Easyjet flight to Venice (Marco Polo).

Checkout flights from Girona to Venice with Ryanair.

If the price looks OK you'll need a train to Perpignan, then frogbus.com to Girona airport

Hi all

Thanks for the input. I checked out Air Corsica and it is pretty expensive. Srangely, the idea by Diz of flying back to UK works pretty well..and costs are affordable too, if I plan ahead. Bearing this in mind, I'll check out other similar options rather than a direct flight from Nimes.

Many thanks again

J.
