train from Rome to Venice

Is there a direct train from Rome to Venice? Can I stop in Florence and continue later in the day? Price? How long is the trip? Other advice?

have you look at the train website for this information? www.trnitalia.con or www.raileurope.com as well as many others.

There are many non-stop trains from Rome to Venice and it takes about 4.5 hrs. First class is bout 80 euro and 2nd about 60 euro.

There are many direct trains; there are no non-stop trains.

The trains all go through Florence, but if you take an ES train, a seat reservation is mandatory, so you have to buy separate Rome-Florence and Florence-Venice tickets that include the seat reservation.

Rome-Florence is about 1 hour 40 minutes; Florence-Venice is about 2.5 hours.

If you put in a date within the next 60 days, you can click on BUY and the prices will come up.

Hi sm, here is the English version for the trenitalia website.

http://www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html

By the way, the Florence train station is in the historical district so if you do take some time in Florence you will be able to walk to what you want to see quite easily. When you get off the train in Florence look down on your left and you will see the office where you can check your luggage while you enjoy some hours in Florence. Just be sure to doublecheck when the luggage storage office closes. Have a fun trip!

Am I reading this wrong on trenitalia? It shows departure is Roma and Arrival is Venice. It shows no connection thru another station like Florence. I've used this website a lot of the last couple of years and it always shows the other stations.

sandi_travelnut,

You wrote "non-stop"; if you click on Dettagli and then on the train number, you will see that the trains *stop* in Florence and Bologna, at the least.

A *direct* train - one that takes you from Point A to Point B, from Rome to Venice, without changes - is *not* the same as a "non-stop" train.
