If you’re planning a trip from Florence to Venice by train, be prepared to witness the breathtaking countryside unravel before your eyes! Traveling up to 300 km/h, Italy’s high speed trains let you choose among 4 different service levels to enjoy a custom-tailored journey. And with frequent departures available daily, you can take the nearly 2-hour train ride to Venice when it’s most convenient for you.
Venice is one of the few cities in the world where you don’t use conventional roads to get around. Made up of more than 100 islands, Venice instead uses its vast network of canals and waterways as its chief method of transportation. So be sure to take a relaxing gondola ride during your visit to truly experience the charm and wonder of this unique city. Key tourist attractions include St. Mark’s Basilica, Doge’s Palace, the Gallerie dell’Accademia museum and Rialto Bridge.
