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…
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.
Considering to travel with the train in Europe? With the NSInternational train network you can buy train tickets up to 2700 destinations.
You can read here about train connections between Munich – Venice, Verona – Venice and Paris – Venice. I will make soon a special page about connections between Rome and Venice. My favorite!
Munich: From Munich, there is a direct train to Venice every day. By train to Venice you have the advantage that you do not have to travel by car or plane. The train is an outcome. And you only have to move once or twice from most European cities. Freedom of movement and comfort!
Buy a single train ticket from Munich to Venice. You can also reach Munich from Utrecht (the Netherlands), the train departs from 20:35 to Munich Hbf (Hauptbahnhof). The train will arrive at 7:10 am the next morning.
You can reserve sleeping chairs and / or compartments where you can sleep. You will arrive comfortable in Venice! In Munich, you have to change trains.
Taking the direct train to Venice from Munich? You cannot book these via NSInternational, but via www.raileurope-world.com. You can also buy a ticket at the carrier EC (European Cityline) at the station. This train leaves for Venice every day at 11:38. The journey takes six hours and goes along beautiful scenery in the Austrian and northern Italy mountains.
Verona: Via NSInternational you also have a different choice. You can book directly to Verona. In Munich, you have to switch to the EC train to Verona. From Verona, you have to buy a local ticket to Venice. The advantage is that you can buy it via NSInternational. This connection is better than the direct train link between Munich and Venice.
Paris: Book your train ticket from Paris to Venice. Only a 9 hours and 40 minutes trip with beautiful scenery.
This is a train route which is used often in the 19th century and now it is still possible to experience the historic route. 10 hours in a train feels long, but you can have a lunch, dinner and walk around. The price differs, but an one way train ticket is EUR 95,-. Book your reserved seats >

Many travelers are using the train station or depart from Venice. It is a modern station in a perfect location. Tickets can be purchased until 21:00 at the ticket office or in the ticket machine 24/7. Do not forget to stamp your ticket. The train station gives direct access to the Grand Canal where you can take a vaporetto boat. This makes the station easy to reach.
Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia can be reached directly from; Rome, Milan, Florence, Paris, Vienna, Munich and Zurich. The train station has great connection with local, regional and express trains.
www.trenitalia.com is a carrier that operates most of the train services in Italy. Their website is in English. The train tickets can be bought online. Tickets for the fast train within Italy (Frecce of Italo) are quite expensive, but generally the train in Italy is cheap.
Environmentally friendly and cheap. Many visitors of Venice park their car in Mestre and continue by train. Venice is a 12-minute train ride from Mestre.
Almost every 10 minutes trains depart for Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia.
You're not the only one. Many travelers save at their expense and stay in Mestre. Very close to the train station in Mestre are three good hotels. These are the Best Western Hotel Bologna, Hotel the Plaza and Hotel Tritone. The hotel rates are acceptable and they have their own parking spaces. Ideal!
Many questions on my site are about how to get the best from Treviso (airport) to Venice. The train is an option. From the airport take the local bus number 6 to Treviso Stazione Fs.
Every 10 minutes there is a train to Venice. A train trip costs € 3.30. Do not forget to get off at Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia. This is after you cross the long bridge in venice!
