Florence to Modena and Modena to Venice help

Hi Fodor Forum

A quick query - anyone know the best way to get from FLorence to Modena? Looking at Trenitalia it seems that train is quite convenient with a change in Bologna. Would people agree?

Also, from Modena to Venice? I can't seem to get an answer from trenitalia... Is the Modena train station on trenitalia just 'Modena' or the Modena Piazza Manzoni or Modena Policino?? And I assume Venice train station is just 'Saint Lucia'.

Thanks!

The station should just be Modena and you want Venice SL.

Modena is a lovely town with excellent food. While not a tourist area, the region is known for its food. The center of the town is a pedistrian only area, which is nice for strolling.

Modena is about a 15-20 minute ride from Bologna. You'll pass the Maserati plant on the left as you enter town. The Ferrari factory is about 10 miles away by bus. They have a nice quasi-museum there.

Bologna is your transfer station for anything coming in or out of Modena.

To get from Florence to Modena without changing you can go from Firenze Rifredi rather than the main station of Firenze Santa Maria Novella.

Happy railing!
