San Marco to Rome Help Please

Hi all,

We are staying in San Marcos in November. We hope to spend a day in Rome. Our current plan is get the Vaparetto to the train station. Get the 7:25am from Venezia S. Lucia which get us to Roma Termini at 11:10am.

We are then planning to leave 18:50pm and arrive back at Venezia at 22:50.

My questions are

Would it be easy to get a Vaparetto at that time of the night

Much more importantly is it safe to be travelling on a train in Italy during the evening or we we be better advised leaving earlier.

Many thanks for any help.

The vaporetto services from the train station to San Marco run 24/7. Trains in Italy are safe at any time

Thank you so much.

We wanted to enjoy our day in Rome but didn't want to be fretting about the late night journey back.

You have nothing to worry about safety wise. It will be a long day for you, but hopefully an enjoyable one.

Keep an eye on your belongings. There have instances of bags having been lifted off luggage racks and seats by nicely-dressed thieves as the train is about to leave, or at various stops along the way.

Italy is no different from most European countries when it comes to train travel. One simply needs to be careful.

It's been my experience on Italian trains that they are generally full of very nice people. Never saw any bandits or pirates.
