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 Venice to Milan 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 Venice to Milan 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 Padua, Vicenza, Verona and Brescia. The landscape on this route is generally 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.

    Venice to Milan Centrale

    Trenitalia and NTV Italo both operate this route from Venice to Milan, in each case using their smartest high-speed trains (even though most of the railway from Venice to Milan is anything but high-speed!). There is also a once-daily EuroCity train (operated by Swiss Railways).

    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 or six times en route to Milan before arriving at Milan Centrale station, from where you'll find a fine range of onward connections.

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.
