Travel by train from Milan to Venice

Milan and Venice are well connected! The average journey from Milan to Venice takes on average 2 hr 45 min. Around 59 trains depart a day from Milan to Venice. The average price is $31.08, and the lowest ticket pricing starts at around $20.42. If you travel from Milan to Venice by train you will leave from Milano Centrale station, Milano Rogoredo, Lambrate or Rho Fiere.

Warning! It is not uncommon to encounter tourists in Venezia Mestre asking for directions to St. Mark's Square, eliciting laughter from commuters. The Venezia Mestre station is an important interchange and therefore the easiest to reach, but the island station in Venice is Venezia Santa Lucia, one or two stops after Mestre.

The fastest way to reach Venice Santa Lucia from Milan is by a direct high-speed train, such as Italo or a Frecciargento from Trenitalia. In just 2½ hours you will be in downtown Venice.

Italo, depending on the class you choose in addition to electrical outlets and wi-fi offers you a catering and welcome service. Remember that if you select Smart class, luggage larger than 75x53x30 cm is not allowed.
Frecciargento trains are equipped with all amenities, including reclining seats, catering service and luggage spaces.

Then there are numerous combinations with Frecciarossa and Intercity trains, which are slower than Frecciargento but still very comfortable. Have you planned your trip at the last minute and forgotten to book your train ticket? Every day Milan and Venice are also connected by Trenord and Trenitalia regional trains, which by not offering the possibility of reserving a seat allow you to buy your ticket until the time of departure.

Dear passengers, we have reached our destination! From Venice Santa Lucia you can walk to the places that make the island of Venice unique and inimitable: St. Mark's Square and the Doge's Palace, the Rialto Bridge and the world-famous Bridge of Sighs. Of course, you can choose to tour Venice on foot by land, or cross its dense network of canals by gondola. If you have the chance, also venture to the surrounding islands of the Venetian lagoon: Murano and Burano in particular, where you can admire the masterpieces of the master glassmakers and take a selfie in front of the colorful fishermen's houses.
