Should I fly from Nice to Venice or take a train?

Jump to last reply

Hello there! Wanted you opinion on something. I am staying in Cannes and need to get to Venice. I have two options. See below.

1) Cannes to Venice by train: 8:41 - 5:40 pm. Arrive at hotel probably around 6:15 pm. Actual "sitting" time on train is 7 hours. However, much longer travel day.

2) Plane from Nice to Venice. Arrive in Venice at our hotel by 3:30 therefore arriving at our hotel almost 3 hours earlier. Is it worth it to spend $125 more dollars to arrive at our hotel 3 hours early? I don't think it is the money that is the issue, but rather the annoyance of how long it takes. 7 hours sitting on a train seems like a LONG time, however those 7 hours are broken up into 3 train transfers. So, the longest time we are actually on one train is 3 hours 52 minutes. Are the train rides enjoyable with amazing scenary?

Another thing to consider is the plane is a turbo prop?? Scary....however, the plane ride is only 1 hour and 1/2! (keep in mind that even with the short plane ride, we only get into our hotel 3 hours earlier than train)

Ugh!! I don't know what to do.....
