Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. Trains from Milan to Venice run at least hourly. The 267-km route follows traditional rather than high-speed lines, so the pace isn't fast - even the twice-daily Frecciarossa services (just introduced in early 2016) travel no faster than the frequent Frecciabianca trains. Plan on about 2 hrs 30 mins for the run from Milan to Venice. On the way, you'll pass through Brescia, Verona, Vicenza and Padua. The landscape on this route is pancake-flat, but there are some moments of quiet drama: a glimpse of Lake Garda just prior to Verona and the impressive approach into the final terminus at Venice Santa Lucia.

    Bookings for the journey from Milan to Venice usually open four months prior to travel, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.

    Trenitalia operate the route from Milan to Venice, in the main using comfortable Frecciabianca trains. There is in addition a once-daily EuroCity train and, since early 2016, two direct Trenitalia Frecciarossa services each day. Trains to Venice all depart from Milan Centrale station. In Venice all trains stop at Mestre, with most of them then continuing over the bridge to Venezia Santa Lucia. The latter is much more convenient for the heart of the Old Town so book on a train that runs through to Santa Lucia if possible. Most trains on this route stop five times between Milan and Venice.
