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.

More advice about how to find the cheapest tickets can be found in our infographic.

  1. The train from Venice to Rome travels 500 km across Italy. Trains depart at least hourly, travelling from Venice via Bologna and Florence to reach Rome. Choose either Trenitalia or NTV Italo services on this important route across Italy.

    Leaving Venice, the terrain is fairly flat until the train reaches Bologna. Beyond Bologna the line cuts in long tunnels through the hills to Florence. Having reached Tuscany, the journey continues southwards, following the Tiber Valley towards Rome.

    The fast trains from Venice to Rome take under 4 hours. If you are not on a tight schedule, there are also much slower Intercity (IC) trains to Rome. They avoid the high-speed lines and take a couple of hours longer. Whichever route you choose from Venice to Rome, you’ll normally be able to book tickets from about four months in advance of travel. Italo services may go on sale even earlier. Book early for the cheapest tickets.


    Venice to Rome

    Most trains leave Venice from Venezia Santa Lucia, which is the more convenient station for the heart of the Old Town. If you book on a train that does not run from Santa Lucia, you can always join the train to Rome at Venice Mestre station.

    The fast direct trains from Venice to Rome do not all arrive at the same station in the Italian capital. Check your booking carefully. Trenitalia’s Frecciargento and Frecciarossa services all stop at Tiburtina before continuing to Roma Termini station. Two Frecciargento trains each day continue from central Rome on to Fiumicino Airport. The Italo services all serve Tiburtina, with four trains each day also dropping off travellers at Roma Termini.

    The fast services from Venice to Rome make from one to four stops on their journey between the two cities.

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.
