Prices explained

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, based on how far in advance you book.

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.

30 day advance and 7 day advance prices are found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from today. These prices fluctuate daily based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price on a busy Saturday in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey on a Tuesday in winter.

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

  1. Cheapest price £8.70

  1. Trains from Venice to Milan run at least hourly. This 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 Venice to Milan. On the way, you'll pass through Padua, Vicenza, Verona and Brescia. The landscape on this route is pancake-flat, but there are some moments of quiet drama: the impressive start as you leave Venice Santa Lucia station and a glimpse of Lake Garda shortly after leaving Verona.

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

    Trenitalia operate this route from Venice to Milan, in the main using comfortable Frecciabianca trains. There is also a once-daily EuroCity train (operated by Swiss Railways) and, since early 2016, two direct Trenitalia Frecciarossa services each day.

    Most trains leave Venice from Venezia Santa Lucia, which is the more convenient station for the Old Town. If you book on a train that does not run from Santa Lucia, you can always join the train to Milan at Venice Mestre station. Most trains on this route stop five times en route to Milan before arriving at Milan Centrale station.
