Day bus/train Venice to Vienna question - am I missing something?

Jump to last reply

My two sisters and I need to travel during the day from Venice to Vienna in early May, 2013, and would like to have the tickets in hand before arriving in Italy.

Past topics on Fodor's have helped a lot, but I'm a bit nervous about the huge difference in fares and connections.

Is this right? From the OBB site, If we get the day train from Venice leaving at 9.20 am, it is actually a bus which takes us from Venezia Tronchetto to the border and then a train to Wien Meidling arriving approximately 8 hours later? And the price is Euro 29?

When we go on the Trenitalia site with the same itinerary we get a message: "invalid departure station / invalid arrival station".

When we go on the RailEurope site it indicates that a train leaves Venezia S Lucia and arrives in Wien Westbahnh after an 11 hour trip with 2 connections and costs 130 Euros for a "Best Second Class" - reservation included.

Is it a no-brainer for us to book the bus/train journey through OBB or am I missing something important here?
