It’s time to take a train to Venice! But, how do you get there from nearby train stations and cities around Europe? I will describe it here…

Train to Venice Italy, beautiful scenery!From Munich (Germany) to Venice Italy. Enjoy the view!

The train station in Venice itself is called 'Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia.' The station is next to the Grand Canal. And yes, it happened to me too. If your train stops at "Mestre," you're going to doubt where to get out the train. Because the station in Mestre is called 'Venezia Mestre.'

But this Mestre station is on the mainland. Venice is more 12 minutes with the train! And when you arrive at the station ‘Santa Lucia,’ you have to go down the stairs and continue your journey on foot or a vaporetto boat.
