Venice to Florence train
Do trains between venice and florence need to be booked in advance? I will be going to venice in july. I dont plan to stay there overnite but spend most of my day there. so i am not sure when i am gonna leave. I am concerened since July is peak travel time, i dont want to be stranded without a hotel. thanks

Have you checked when the trains actually run the day you need? Just buy a ticket for the last train. I am willing to take bets that you'll fill the day in Venice.
I WOULD, however, book your Florence hotel ahead of time. Just let them know you'll be arriving late.

hi tb,

train schedules and prices are at

The last train from San Lucia station is at 19:09, but you might want the 18:36 ES*.

Buy your ticket to Florence when you arrive in Venice.

Enjoy your day.

Buy at station for Firenza when you arrive in Venezia.
Enjoy. Both places are fantastic.
