Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe 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.

Take the train from Rome to Venice

Frecciarossa or Frecciargento or Italo

The train from Rome to Venice travels from Rome via Florence and Bologna to reach Venice. Choose either Trenitalia or NTV Italo services on this important route across Italy.

From Rome the route follows the Tiber Valley northwards, eventually travelling through the hills to reach Tuscany. Beyond Florence, the line cuts in long tunnels through the hills to Bologna, from where the terrain is much flatter on the final part of the journey to Venice.

If you aren't on a tight schedule, in addition to the fast trains, there are also much slower Intercity trains to Venice. They avoid the high-speed lines and take a couple of hours longer.

Rome to Venice

The fast direct trains from Rome to Venice do not all leave from the same station in Rome. Check your booking carefully. Trenitalia’s Frecciargento and Frecciarossa services usually start from Roma Termini and then stop 10 minutes later to pick up passengers at Tiburtina. Trains start from Roma Fiumicino, giving a direct link from the airport to Venice. The Italo services all serve Tiburtina, with trains each day also picking up travellers at Roma Termini.

Fast trains from Rome all stop at Venice Mestre, with most services then continuing over the bridge to Venezia Santa Lucia. The latter is much more convenient for the heart of the Old Town. The fast services from Rome to Venice make anything from one to four stops on their journey between the two cities.
