Venice airport to Florence by train

Jump to last reply

Hope for some suggestions.

We will be arriving into Venice airport around 2 pm the day after Easter, having left the US the evening before. Not sure if we should recover by staying in Venice a day or so ( we will be back in Venice for a few days at the end of the trip) or just try to move right on to Florence.

How easy is it to get to the train station from the airport? Since it is the day after Easter will we have problems getting a train without already having tickets/reservations? I have looked at past posts about passes vs buying there and being a holiday makes me nervous.

I have looked at the web sites and it looks like the cost of a ticket is 52 or 47euros each one way. That does not sound like the cheap Italian train tickets I have always heard about. And with luggage is 1st class a better choice?

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
Barb
