Travel inspiration in Paris and Venice
Your travel by train from Paris to Venice
Taking the train between France and Italy is fast and enjoyable thanks to the Thello trains. Passengers travel overnight between Paris and Venice and the journey takes around 13 hours. Carriages are spacious and comfortable with options for reclining chairs during the day to six berth cabins and private double and single sleepers in night trains. There’s a restaurant car too.
The Thello departs Paris from Gare de Lyon to Venice. Gare de Lyon is on the underground lines 1 and 14 and RER A and D and is easy to reach in central Paris. Allow around 30 to 45 minutes to transfer from Gare du Nord. Venice’s mainland station is called Venezia Mestre but Santa Lucia station is also served by Italian domestic trains. Venice is well connected to the airport and other regional and international trains.
Visit Venice and discover other popular train journeys
Venice is Italy’s romantic and unique gem, hidden in the water ways of its hundreds of canals and crammed full of secret delights and picturesque scenes at almost every step. Visitors take a ride on a gondola and enjoy the hustle and bustle of St Marc’s Square. Most people enjoy a stroll through the six different neighbourhoods stumbling upon churches, restaurants and little squares and fountains.
From Venice travellers can take the train back into France for adventures or on the Italian train networks for Rome, Milan or Naples and other wonderful places in Italy.
