It’s time to take a train to Venice! But, how do you get there from nearby train stations and cities around Europe? I will describe it here…

Train to Venice Italy, beautiful scenery!From Munich (Germany) to Venice Italy. Enjoy the view!

The train station in Venice itself is called 'Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia'. And yes, it happened to me too. If your train stops in "Mestre", you're going to doubt where to get out the train. Because the station in Mestre is called 'Venezia Mestre'.

But this station is on the mainland. Venice is more 12 minutes with the train! And when you will arrive at station ‘Santa Lucia’, you have to go down the stairs and continue your journey on foot or an a vaporetto boat.

Tip 1: Discover Venice by gondola and experience the magic of the city from the water. Through my partner we have tickets from EUR 32 , - Book here >
