Website for Italian train schedules?

I'm planning to travel by train on part of my May trip to Italy and wondered if there was a website with schedules from Rome to Florence, Florence to Venice, and Venice to Rome? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Actually, the web site is now www.trenitalia.com (or .it).

You will find that trains leave from Rome to Florence about twice hourly. Florence to Venice and Venice to Rome is a little more complicated but certainly doable. Have fun.

Not entirely sure what is meant by "more complicated" for Venice-Rome, unless it means simply that there are multiple options, including places to stop along the way.

But the Eurostar option is certainly fast enough, and you can have a nice fancy lunch or dinner - - a bit expensive, (perhaps) available (only?) if you are traveling first class - - when you choose a train leaving at the pertinent hour of the day. There's a stop in Florence (when traveling from Venice to Rome), no matter how you go about it, I think.

Best wishes,

Rex

When travelling in Italy between the major cities such as those mentioned I always prefer to use the Swiss web site - www.sbb.ch which is in the 3 national languages plus English- It is much clearer I think. For more obscure routes then you have to use the Italian one.
Does anyone else use the Swiss one for travel in Italy?

Actually, the web site is either www.fs-on-line.com or www.trenitalia.com, both take you to the same place.
