Venice to Rome

We are planning to fly into Venice and out of Rome. We are going to spend 2 days in Venice and then take the train to Rome. Anyone know costs and where the train stations are located in both Venice and Rome?

There is only one railway station in Venice - Santa Lucia - on the banks of the Grand Canal at the other end from San Marco. The vaporetto landing stage Ferrovia is immediately outside the station.

Trains from Venice to Rome take around 4 hours and 30 minutes or so. Prices vary depending on which train. You can check on www.trenitalia.it and buy tickets up to about 6 weeks in advance.

Train from Venice arrive in Rome at Stazione Roma Termini I believe, which is in Piazza dei Cinquecento in Esquilino.

Ryan Air has strict limits on the weight of baggage. If you go over the limit you have to pay a penalty that can substanially increase the cost of your trip.

Flying is not any faster than taking a train once you factor in the time it takes to get to the airport (both airports are located outside the city center) and time you need to be at the airport before your flight.

We took the train between Rome and Venice this summer. It took about 4 1/2 hours and was a nice trip and not too expensive, if I remember correctly. We got a direct train, with no changes, and it was very convenient even with luggage. The train stations in both towns are right in the middle of town. I'd hate to have to worry about getting in and out of town to the airports. Seems to add so much time to your trip.

We took the train from Venice to Florence and then to Rome, and I am actually really glad we did. The trains are so nice (huge difference from those in the states) and the view of the Italian countryside is outstanding. We would recommend going first class - not much of a price difference, but much more room.

Definitely take the train. Downtown to downtown is much quicker and better than airport checkin, security and ?? weather. EuroStar Italia trains are non-smoking, modern and some with sit down restaurant cars. trenitalia.com/en/…index.html

Schedules and fares (click on the "Shopping cart") are at: http://www.trenitalia.com/home/en/index.html

Departure is from Venezia S. Lucia and arrival is Roma Termini. ES 9467 departs at 10:32 for the 4h 33m trip and arrives at 15:05, 1st class cost is 67.14 Euro. This is the most popular time so reserve several days in advance.
