It is easy to take the train from Venice to Florence. 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 Venice to Florence route. The first stretch to Bologna offers good views of the Veneto and the open landscapes of Emilia-Romagna. Beyond Bologna, however, most of the railway line to Florence is in tunnels.
Bookings for Trenitalia services on the Venice to Florence 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.
