Venezia / Venice / Venedig to Vicenza by train

How to take a rail journey from Venice/Venezia to Vicenza

There isn't a high speed line (yet) between Venice and Vicenza, so all of the trains take the same route, but due to the comparatively short distance, the express trains (Frecce, Italo, EC) are less than 10 mins faster than the Regionale trains, despite being more expensive.

Hence SMTJ's advice is to ignore those express trains and only take the Regionale Veloce (RV) trains when taking the train from Venice to beautiful Vicenza.



From Venezia Santa Lucia/Venice S. L. to Vicenza

Travel Information

Final Destination: Verona Porta Nuovo (or Brescia)

All trains also call at: Padova

The alternative Regionale trains:

In most hours there are also slower Regionale (R) train services on this Venice to Vicenza route.
There is no point taking those Regionale (R) trains, as tickets will be the same price as these faster RGV trains; and the journey time will be longer!

However, those slower trains tend to depart from Venezia S. Lucia around 7mins BEFORE these RGV trains.
Check the departure screens and look for RGV or RV next to the train number.
These RGV/RV trains will then overtake the slower R trains and arrive in Verona around 40 mins sooner.

1 or 2 x trains per hour


Book early and save: No - not if you take these Regionale Veloce (RV) trains.

Tickets will cost the same price if purchased at the same station immediately before departure.

There are also Frecce trains from Venezia/Venice to Vicenza, but our advice is to ignore these trains*

They're only a couple of minutes faster, but the tickets are at least €7 more expensive in comparison to these Regionale Veloce (RGV/RV) trains, even if you're booking months ahead.

Good to Know

Even if you will be buying at the station, it's worthwhile looking up the departure times of these trains on Trenitalia.

These trains tend to be popular and seats can’t be reserved, so it pays off if you're able to board around 8-10 mins before the train is due to depart.
Therefore aim to be at Santa Lucia station around 25 mins ahead of the departure time, to give yourself time to buy a ticket and find a seat.

The ticket office at Venezia S. Lucia is constantly busy, so give the Trentalia branded ticket machines a try - they're comparatively easy to use.
