Early Italy train departure

I have tickets on the Eurostar Italia train that runs from Roma Termini to Venezia Lucia stations. My son is stationed in Vicenza and is to meet us at the Venice train station. I noticed that we have a quick stop at Padova. Well, Padova is half way between Vicenza and Venice. Would we be allowed to get off at Padova instead of going all the way to Venice like our tickets say? Does anyone check your ticket when you get off the train? Would we get in any kind of trouble for getting off at an earlier stop? If we could, it would save us and him about an hour of travel time. Thanks!!!

No one checks tickets of people exiting trains, so there is no reason (as far as I know) why you could not get off at this stop. I believe you can always get off early -- after all, it is your loss (of value), not theirs.

Hi K,

Yes, you can get off in Padova.

By all means, get off the train at Padova (and visit the Scrovegni Chapel with the Giotto frescoes while you're there, 5 minutes on foot from the station!!!)

You are allowed to get off at any station and then back on again as long as you keep moving in you original direction.

NOT TRUE if travelling on a Eurostar ticket!!!!!! If you get off a Eurostar train at an intermediate station, you cannot re-board another Eurostar train at a later time to continue your journey. You may, however, be allowed to board a later Intercity or local train to continue your journey (I'm not sure about this).


If on any other type of ticket, you may get off, but must complete your journey within 6 hours if your original ticket is for 200 kilometers or less; if travelling over 200 kilometres, you must complete the journey within 24 hours.
