Trains to Venice Find train times and tickets

Few visitors come to Venice without great expectations. And the great thing about Venice is that the city invariably lives up to those expectations. This is a city whose wealth and reputation were sealed by the sea (which may eventually seal the fate of the sinking city, too).

No ifs, no buts.... Venice is superb. If you have time for just one Italian city, make it Venice (Venezia in Italian). The city has a reputation for being formidably crowded, but Venice makes space for everyone. If you cut away from the main tourist trails, it’s always possible to discover quieter corners of the city. Make time for rides on vaporetti to the Lido and the islands of the lagoon.

The only railway station on Venice’s main island is Venezia Santa Lucia. To step out of Venice Santa Lucia station and see the Grand Canal makes for one of the most memorable moments of arrival in the world. Trains reach Santa Lucia over a long and rather uninspiring bridge from the mainland. Venice’s other station is called Venezia Mestre. It is on the wrong side of the bridge. Trains from major Italian cities all terminate at Venezia Santa Lucia. They include services from Naples, Rome, Florence, Bologna, Turin, Milan and Verona (with a choice of two operators from all those Italian cities, viz. NTV Italo or Trenitalia). Venice gets its first direct train from Genoa from March 2018, with the launch of a new daily Frecciarossa service from the Ligurian city. Cities closer to Venice such as Vicenza, Padua and Trieste all have direct trains to Santa Lucia.

Venice Santa Lucia is the starting point for many overnight and international services. Every evening overnight trains depart for Munich, Vienna, Paris and Rome. There are also direct daytime trains to Geneva, Munich and Vienna - all routes which include a good dose of Alpine scenery along the way. An innovation for 2018 is a new once-daily direct train from Zurich and Lugano to Venice. Also on the cards for late 2018 is a new twice-daily direct train service to Venice from Ljubljana in Slovenia.

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.
