Train from Venice to Rome Fiumicino Airport

Train from Venice to Rome Fiumicino Airport

Go straight from La Serenissima to Italy’s largest airport. Find out about taking the train from Venice to Rome Fiumicino Airport.

While it may be hard to tear yourself away from the gorgeous canals of Venice, at some point most visitors need to head back home. And if your departure airport is Rome’s Fiumicino Airport (FCO), you’ve got some 345 miles (555 km) to cover before you board your plane.

High-speed trains make it as painless as possible to cross that distance - driving would take longer, and certainly wouldn’t given you a chance to relax and watch the Italian scenery go by.

 

Frequent Trains from Venice to Rome Fiumicino Airport

Trenitalia’s high-speed Alta Velocità (AV) trains connect Venezia Santa Lucia station with Rome’s Fiumicino Aeroporto station, but they only do so directly once per day. There are 29 trains per day leaving Venice bound for Rome’s airport, however - they just require that you change trains along the way.

The routes vary from Venice to FCO, though most of the transfers are in either Roma Tiburtina or Roma Termini. Often, these routes mean changing from an AV train to a Regionale train for the Rome-FCO leg of the journey. The trip can take as little as 4 hours 15 minutes, even with a change en route. Tickets cost $47-68.

With Italo trains, you can get from Venezia Santa Lucia station to either Roma Termini or Roma Tiburtina, and from there on to Fiumicino via a Regionale, AV, or Leonardo Express train. The Venice-to-Rome trip on Italo takes between 3 hours 20 minutes and 3 hours 45 minutes, depending on the time of day and the Rome station to which you’re headed.

Note that weekends and holidays typically mean less frequent service and sometimes longer travel times.

Venice and Rome Fiumicino Airport Train Stations

Venice has two stations, though one – Mestre – is on the mainland. The station on the islands, which most travelers use, is called Venezia Santa Lucia (sometimes abbreviated as S.Lucia), and there's a vaporetto stop right outside the station on the Grand Canal. Some trains stop at both Venice stations, while others stop at only Santa Lucia.
The airport’s train station is called Fiumicino Aeroporto (there’s another called Fiumicino just for the nearby town, so don’t get confused) and it’s located inside Fiumicino Airport. It’s just opposite of Terminal 1, and if that’s not the terminal from which you’re departing there’s a free shuttle connecting all the terminals in the airport.
