Rome to Venice on the Bicycle

I know there are many adventurous readers on my site. And cyclists are really among them! Cycling from Rome to Venice is really doable. The fantastic route along the Adriatic sea. It is more than twenty-eight consecutive hours of cycling. Taking into account rest and sleep, it is approximately three days. But how cool!

If you ever consider that you can also walk the nice trip that seems fun to do, you have to walk for more than four days. And then without an intermediate stop. So take into account 8 to 10 days of walking. Rather beautiful!

I get totally excited!

But the fastest you are, of course, always by plane. A direct flight from Rome's "Fiumicino" airport to Venice takes over an hour. Alitalia planes fly to Venice multiple times throughout the day. Are you also wondering how much are the flight tickets from Rome to Venice? The airplane is the fastest route, you would say... Read my page; Flight tickets Rome Venice.

However, the train is a cheaper option. It takes 3 hours and 15 minutes at its fastest before arriving at Venezia Santa Lucia station. You must book this train in advance. Read everything about your best option with the Train from Rome to Venice.

Alternatively, a night bus can be an easy option. But then you are on the bus for about 8 hours.
