Your travel by train from Venice to Milan
Trenitalia’s network stretches across Italy with the Frecce Italian domestic trains. The Frecciabianca (White Arrow) trains travel at high speed and take just over 2h30 between Venice and Milan. On board there are comfortable air conditioned carriages with snacks and drinks in-seat and at the buffet car. First class passengers enjoy a hot drink, newspaper and snacks.
Venezia Mestre is one of Venice’s train stations but the main one, across the causeway, is Santa Lucia, which is also served by Italian domestic trains. The busy train station, Milano Centrale sees 600 trains a day to major cities across Italy on the broad Trenitalia network. Onward travel to other countries is also possible with international trains leaving regularly. There are good public transport connections as well as taxis to get to hotels, restaurants and meetings in the city.
Between two cities in Italy a point to point ticket is the cheapest option. However if travellers want to explore more of Italy there are some rail passes which will offer more flexibility and freedom such as the Eurail Italy Pass, as well as international rail passes too.
Visit Milan and discover other popular train journeys
Milan is Italy’s capital of fashion and many visitors will enjoy browsing the high end designer boutiques and big fashion names on the main shopping streets and enjoy watching the Milanese go about their daily business from the terrace of a café. Milan is also home to sculptures by the incredible Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci’s awesome Last Supper and many more historic and beautiful buildings.
Destinations on Trenitalia’s network include popular routes such as Rome-Naples, Milan-Bologna and Rome-Milan, but don’t forget the mountain villages and the islands of the Italian coast.
Reviews & ratings Venice - Milan
"Enjoyable trip"Raymon C D s.
I used Austria Night Train from Wien Westbahnhof to Venezia S Lucia with my wife and daughter. We took the T3 Sleeper. The cabin in seating position is a little bit small and cramp - not leaving extra space inside the cabin. We had 4 cabin size luggage and we were feeling lucky that we have the cabin size luggage because otherwise it will take up so much space. Once the seat changed to bed mode, then it is more comfortable. We can lie down and take a sleep. I was surprised with the amenities, we got water, slippers, tooth brush and sparkling wine. However, they were quite bulky and take up so much space. Overall, the bed is comfortable so we can sleep throughout the night. In the morning we got some breakfast but they were all very minimal. The staff was very friendly and make the trip become more enjoyable. So, I would recommend this mode of transportation: 1) you save your airfare cost and 2) you save on your one night hotel because you can sleep in the train :)

"Value for money!"Ra b. 27/11/2013
Five of us travelled from Venice to Milan with lots of luggage. We booked 2nd class so didn't expect any help with our luggage. We have a motto "only take what you can carry yourself" The luggage rack area was safe and easily accessible. We had seats facing each other with a table which was ideal. Comfy seats, plenty of room was just what we needed. The online booking was so simple.Will definitely recommend.
"Rome to Venice"Thomas m. 21/11/2013
The train was right on time in both leaving Rome and arriving in Venice.
"Excellent scenery"Kazunori k. 20/11/2013
It was a nice journy from Milan to Zurich and train staff was very familiar. More cleanliness is needed, for example full trash boxes.

"Beautiful journey"Surabhi j. 08/11/2013
The train was clean and comfortable but the WC in our coach was not working, so it was inconvenient with a little one to walk past an entire coach for the same. Otherwise, the train was nice and we had no issues whatsoever. Thanks!
"Beautiful journey "Surabhi j. 08/11/2013
Journey was beautiful and train was comfortable wrt seats and other basic amenities. The train was late and we had a connecting train from Milan so it was hectic for us. We had kept 2 hrs gap in between two trains and the train was late by one hour, which is usual for this TGV route. Rest was perfect!
"Easy "Gerald s. 04/11/2013
Relaxed and enjoyed the scenery on the comfortable, high-speed trip Florence to Venice. Personnel were nice and helpful; train was on time and easy to board and exit.
"Train from Florence to Milan"Gerald s. 04/11/2013
The train is very clean and seats are comfortable. Most importantly, they are always very punctual. I realise it is cheaper to buy the ticket on-line before travel and not when you are there. The price difference can be quite great.
"RailEuropememorable experience"Satyanarayana p. 01/11/2013
I wanted to see Leonardo's painting 'The last supper'. I got my guided tour reserved for 22/09/2013 at 10 am. I booked my Rail-Europe tickets Firenge to Milan at 7 am and back at 13-15 pm by 2nd class each for 17 Euros, from India. It was a tight trip and I was tense weather I can make it. The trains were on time and I could fulfill my long cherished dream of watching Leonardo's magnum opus. Thanks to Rail-Europe for its prompt service at an affordable price.
