It is easy to take the train from Florence to Venice. Trenitalia is the lead operator on this popular route, running hourly Frecciargento services between the two cities. In addition, NTV Italo offers five trains each day on the Florence to Venice route. The initial stretch to Bologna passes through many tunnels, so the views aren't inspiring. Beyond Bologna, there are however good views of the open landscapes of Emilia-Romagna and the Veneto.
Bookings for Trenitalia services on the Florence to Venice route normally open four months prior to travel. Bookings for NTV Italo services may open earlier. You'll find the cheapest tickets when booking opens.
Florence to Venice
All fast trains to Venice depart from Florence Santa Maria Novella (SMN) station. The first stop for all services is Bologna. Beyond Bologna, these trains make one or two other stops before arriving in Venice where they pause at Mestre station and then continue on a bridge over the lagoon to terminate at Venezia Santa Lucia. The latter is definitely the better choice for reaching the centre of Venice.
