Venice to Padova via Train -- Questions

Jump to last reply

I want to do a day-trip from Venice to Padova via train. I have visited the Trenitalia website and printed timetables for my possible travel days and read information on the train types. However, I still have a few questions:

1. What are the differences between first and second class?
2. Can I wait and buy my tickets at the station in Venice and Padova before traveling or do I need to buy them in advance?
3. Do they accept credit cards at the station?
4. Do you think it matters whether I travel on Saturday, Sunday or Monday? I'm thinking it might be harder to get reservations at the Scrovegni Chapel on a weekend.

Sorry if my questions seem elementary. I have never arranged for train travel in Italy before. I will be going in about 3 weeks.
