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.

  1. Trains from Milan to Venice run at least hourly. This 267-km route follows mainly traditional rather than high-speed lines, but these legacy rail routes have been much improved over the last three years, bringing the journey time for the very fastest trains between the two cities down to just two hours. In 2016, Trenitalia introduced its posh Frecciarossa trains onto this important business route (ousting the older and less comfortable Frecciabianca trains). In 2018, private operator NTV Italo brings a whiff of competition to the Milan to Venice run, with several trains each day offering a similar travel time to Trenitalia. Italo's arrival on the route has led to some price competition, with some heavily discounted fares for travel in premium classes.

    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. Note that Trenitalia and Italo don't open bookings on the route on the same day. It sometimes pays to wait until both are on sale to secure real bargain fares.


    Milan to Venice

    Trenitalia and NTV Italo both operate the route from Milan to Venice. 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 or six times between Milan and Venice. Sit on the left side of the train for the best views.

Child and youth passengers

The definition of "Child" and "Youth" varies by country and rail operator. This is why we ask for the age of young passengers.

Sometimes children below a certain age can travel without a seat for free. If you want to guarantee a seat for child passengers, enter '6' as the age of the child.
