Full description
Catch the high-speed train from Santa Maria Novella Train Station in central Florence and make haste for Venice, where you will be free to explore the city’s legendary canals and attractions at leisure.

Trains depart daily, and you will be given assistance before your departure at Casa Italo inside Santa Maria Novella. Your assistant will lead you to the train and show you your coach and seat.

Upon arrival in Venice, pick up your ticket for the public Vaporetto and explore Venice as it should be - from the water! You can choose to go via San Marco Square and along the Gran Canal, or you can head to the Venetian Islands such as Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Trains back to Florence depart at 7:00 PM, giving you plenty of time to see sights such as the Rialto Bridge, Basilica of St. Mark, Campanile, and Doge’s Palace, or relax with a coffee and listen to the music in the Piazza San Marco, or visit the Islands.
