Cheap train tickets from Venice to Florence

The price of train tickets from Venice to Florence starts at $11.28 one-way for a Standard Class ticket if you book in advance. Booking on the day is usually more expensive and costs can vary depending on the time of day, route or class.

Book in advance

Most of the train companies across Europe release their tickets around three to six months in advance, many of which can be cheaper the earlier you book. If you know the dates you want to travel, you may be able to find some cheaper train tickets from Venice to Florence by booking early.§

Be flexible with your travel times

Many of the train services in Europe are also popular commuter services, lots of train companies increase ticket prices during “peak hours” (generally between 06:00 – 10:00 and 15:00 – 19:00 on weekdays). If you can, consider travelling outside of peak hours to find lower priced tickets.

Choose a slower or connecting train

It may take a little longer than some high-speed or direct services, but if you have a little extra time on your hands, you might find a cheaper fare. Plus, you'll have more time to enjoy the view of the countryside!

Look out for special deals

Tips for taking the train from Venice to Florence with kids

Taking the train can be stressful if you’re traveling with kids and a lot of stuff (think strollers, suitcases, and backpacks). Here are our top tips for helping you make the most of your train journey with your little ones.

Arriving in Florence

When traveling from Venice to Florence by train, you’ll arrive at Firenze Santa Maria Novella station, which is right in the heart of the city. You’ll see Firenze everywhere – it’s how the Italians say Florence!

If you’re looking to get out and explore the city’s main landmarks as soon as you arrive, you can get to many places on foot. For example, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is only a ten-minute walk away, while Ponte Vecchio is around 15 minutes away on foot.

Things to do in Florence

Florence is full of culture and history for you to explore. The real question is: where do you start? We’ve rounded up a few key tourist destinations for you:

  1. Palazzo Vecchio: This palace is one of Florence’s oldest attractions, dating back to 1299. You’ll be able to learn all about the history of the city and marvel at stunning artworks when you visit the palace’s museum.
  2. Piazza del Duomo: Admire the architectural glory of Florence’s Duomo when you visit the Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square). And close by you’ll find a range of restaurants and shops to visit too!
  3. Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral: Known across the world as the defining feature of Florence’s skyline, this stunning cathedral is just a ten-minute walk from the train station. The inside is just as pretty as the outside, as there’s lots of artwork to admire.

Explore Europe by train with a Eurail pass

You can use a Eurail Pass if you’re not a European citizen or resident. If you're a European citizen or a non-European who is an official legal resident of a European country, you can use an Interrail Pass instead.

 

Traveling to Florence Airport from the city center

If you’re flying out of Florence on a trip back home, you’ll likely be leaving from Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci Airport. If you want to know how to get from the city center to the airport, keep reading for more details.

Trams to Florence Airport

The cheapest and easiest way to get to Florence Airport from the city center is the tram – you’ll get there in just 15 minutes. Tram line T2 runs to the airport from the center of Florence. You may need to buy a ticket for your baggage if you have more than one suitcase.

You’ll need to buy a ticket for the tram from a ticket machine before boarding. Please remember that you need to get on the tram and validate your ticket, which means you need to put it in the small yellow machines near the doors and have the machine stamp the date/time on it to make it valid. If you fail to do that, a penalty fare will be issued.

Other options

Depending on your airline, you might have a stopover in Rome on your way back to the States. Why not cut down on your flights by taking the train from Florence to Rome first instead?

Tips and tricks from our Trainline team

We love helping our customers find inspiration for their next train journey. Discover some travel stories written based on our employees' experiences.

Traveling as a group from Venice to Florence on a high-speed Frecciarossa train

My family and I were staying in Venice as part of a train trip around Italy. After a lovely couple of days exploring the sites, it was time to move onto our next destination – Florence. We’d booked our tickets online and were sent through PDF tickets we could show on our phones, which was handy as we didn’t need to get to the station too early to visit the ticket office or ticket machines.

Getting to Venice Santa Lucia station

Our hotel was just a 5-minute walk from the train station, so it was easy to get to. There’s also a water taxi stop right outside the station though if you were staying further away. The view from outside the station was one of the best I’ve seen! It’s right on the canal so it was nice to get a last look at the amazing views Venice has to offer.

The view of the canal from outside Venice St Lucia station

The station had some shops, a café and displayed all the services on a large screen – our platform wasn’t announced until quite close to the departure time, but it wasn’t far away in the station, so we didn’t have to rush.

On board the Frecciarossa

We traveled in Standard Class – although it felt like First Class compared to what we’re used to on UK trains. It was easy to find our carriage and our seats as they were on our tickets and clearly shown on the outside and interior of the train. We all had wide leather seats with plenty of legroom, and we got to pick our seats beforehand which meant as a group of six we could have a table and a row of two to ourselves. The luggage racks above our seats could fit all our suitcases in too – much bigger than the ones on UK trains! The WiFi was also quick and easy to connect too.

The journey was smooth although delayed by 16 minutes, but we were kept up to date with the delay throughout the journey on screens throughout the carriage.

Arriving at Florence Santa Maria Novella station

It was early afternoon when we arrived at Florence’s main train station, which was very busy, but it was easy to find the exit and step out into the sun. Although there were buses available, our hotel was just a short walk from the station, so we headed out to enjoy our next few days in Florence.

I found traveling by train from Venice to Florence quick and easy, and I really loved that we could pick our seats in advance to make sure we sat together as a group.
