Day Trip to Venice by High-Speed Train from Rome

2. Day Trip to Venice by High-Speed Train from Rome

Set off on a day trip from Rome to reach Europe’s most romantic city, in just a few hours, by high-speed train. Your tour leader will be with you all the way from Termini train station, escorting you to the platform and onboard. Uncover the wonders of Venice, and receive a one-way pass for Venice’s waterbus transportation. After reaching Venice in less than 3 hours, enjoy a one-way ride on the Venetian typical public transport, the waterbus, or Vaporetto.

Venice is absolutely gorgeous place to visit. Our tour tour is amazing , she went and beyond to make sure our trip to Venice from Rome goes smoothly since my husband is handicap. She coordinated thru the train staffs to trsport my husband’s scooter. The crews are waiting for us when we got to the train stationed. When we got to Venice the vaporotte / ferry is the best way to get around Venice if you have mobility disability. I defiantly recommend this tour to everyone. If you have more time spend at least 3-4 days in Venice. Thanks Rossella for your professionalism and taking care of us.

Very welcome visit. Captivating contemporary art exhibition and superb location. Glimpses of Venice and the lagoon of a disconcerting beauty. I'll come back

Tour guide was responsible. Instruction was clear. He even told me an authentic Venice sea food restaurant. Totally worth it.

It was very easy to exchange the voucher for the tickets and the places are wonderful

Wonderful trip, despite being very tiring. It's really worth it!
