DIRECT trains from Rome FCO Airport to Venice start 12/14/2014

Jump to last reply

DIRECT TRAINS FROM ROME FIUMICINO AIRPORT TO VENICE S. LUCIA start December 14:

Effective December 14, 2014, Trenitalia will offer two daily DIRECT Frecciargento trains from ROME FIUMICINO AIRPORT to Venezia S. Lucia, which avoid a connection at Roma Termini. These two trains will STOP for 10 minutes at Termini station, but proceed on to Florence SMN, Bologna, Padua, Mestre and Venice. THERE IS NO CHANGE OF TRAINS if you travel on one of these two DIRECT trains.

The trains will depart from the Fiumicino Airport train station at 11:08 and 15:08, and arrive in Venice 4 hours and 27 minutes later. On the Trenitalia website, enter "Fiumicino Aeroporto" and "Venezia S. Lucia". The nondiscounted "BASE" fare will be 88 Euros in second class. Discounted advance purchase promotional fares as low as 29 Euros (e.g. "SUPER ECONOMY") will be offered, but are very RISKY if a flight delay causes the booked passenger to MISS the scheduled train: a complete FORFEITURE of the train ticket. For that reason, many passengers will elect to purchase a full-fare ticket at the airport train station upon arrival, rather than risking a forfeiture of a discounted ticket purchased online in advance.

It continues to be possible to travel to Venice VIA Roma Termini station OR Roma Tiburtina station, i.e. with a CONNECTION-change of trains. Trenitalia continues to offer HOURLY (or better) Frecciargento trains to Venice from Roma Termini. The nondiscounted "BASE" fare is 80 Euros. Travel time from Termini station is 3 hours, 45 minutes. All these trains have reserved seating.

Rival Italo Treno continues to offer a five daily trains from Roma Tiburtina Station to Venice. The lowest fare is also 29 Euros (but you must add 8 Euros to reach Tiburtina from FCO airport).
