Venezia / Venice / Venedig to Bologna by train

There isn't a high speed railway between Venice/Venezia and Bologna, but high speed Frecce and Italo trains heading to Rome and beyond, provide the fastest express train services on this route.
Though as is typical, the faster a train, the more expensive it is likely to be; but the difference between journey times isn't particularly extreme on this route.

However, if you will be booking tickets last minute at the station, then taking the slowest Regionale Veloce trains will be a money saver.
