Is it better to take the train or fly with Ryanair? Thanks.

I would definitely take the train. I booked with Ryanair and flew down a couple of weeks ago. I had to be at the airport at least an hour before. Then it was about 45 mins trip. After that I had to wait to get the bus into Termini (8 euro ) and that took almost 2 hours. The train is about 4 and a half hours and just much more convenient. I actually ended up getting the train back !

Venice Santa Lucia station to Rome Termini takes around 4 hours 30 minutes. Train times and ticket prices are available on www.trenitalia.it

By the time you have travelled from Venice out to Treviso airport where Ryanair operate, hung around the airport, flown to Rome, disembarked and travelled in from the Rome airport to Rome city centre you will have spent at least as much time. That is even if Ryanair are flying on time - Italian trains are usually pretty punctual.

So I would not contemplate flying this route and would take the train every time.
