What You Can Expect
Train journeys between the two cities can last up to 2.5 hours, but your high-speed train shuttles you into the heart of Venice in just 2 hours. On arrival in the city, head out to explore! How you spend your time in beautiful Venice is up to you. Entrance fees to attractions and any meals are at your own expense.
Check out Venice’s must-see sights such as St Mark’s Square and Doge’s Palace, from where the powerful yet treacherous doges of Venice once ruled, and discover iconic attractions including St Mark’s Basilica and Rialto Bridge. If culture is your thing, pay homage to contemporary artwork with a visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, or pay a visit to Ca' Rezzonico Museum of Eighteenth Century Art.
To help you get around the city, a Vessel ticket for use on the city’s vaporetto transport system is included. The ticket is valid for 12 hours and covers most areas in central Venice.
At the time advised by your host, make your own way to Venice’s Santa Lucia Station and travel by train back to Florence. Your independent day trip then finishes at Santa Maria Novella Station in Florence.
First off, i booked this for part of my wifes birthday surprise and a surprise it most certainly was! Neither of us had been to venice before and its just stunning. We met our ticket operator within the main station of florence which was easy, handed the tickets and the operator explained brilliantly what you needed to do to get your boat pass and where and when you needed to be on the train. Its a direct 2hr journey and couldnt have been made any simpler. So anyone could have an awesome day in venice like we did. We loved it!
Would we do it again or recommend it, we most certainly would!
This is a good offer, which basically packages the travel expenses (only) for a day trip to Venizia from Firenze by high-speed rail and vaporetto/water taxi. Purchasers will be on their own to plan activities, and to get themselves back to Santa Lucia train station in time for their return trip. Basically, this means an afternoon in Venice. Train service was excellent, though not top of the line, but more specific instructions on how to use the code provided to get a vaporetto ticket from the automated machines would have been helpful. A very satisfactory service, and a wonderful half-day in Venice.
