Approximate cost of train from Munich to Venice?

Help....I'm lost. I've try to look up pricing for a train from Munich to Venice and am finding it very difficult. I've tried the bahn site and still am lost. Does anyone have an approximate cost?

Oh, also...anyone know how long the trip would be?

Thanks so much.

bahn.de will only give a price for the daily through train at 11.31 from Munich, arrive 18.10. There are special advance fares from €39 and the standard flexible fare is €79, 2nd class.

There is also a night train at 21.02 that costs a bit more.

To search schedules and fares from the European National rail websites you generally need to use the German, French or Italian language name and spelling of the destination.

Munich = München = Muenchen

Venice Santa Lucia station = Venezia Santa Lucia

Florence S.M.N. station = Firenze S.M.N.

Lucerne = Luzern

Mürren = Muerren

Things to remember.

The german www.bahn.de and the Austria www.oebb.at co-operate on tickets/pricing/timetable information. The Italians www.trenitalia.com does not co-operate with the germans/austrians so it it nigh on impossible to get a price of a fare to venice which requires a change to an Italian train. In addition Trenitalia does not show all cross border timetable information. All cross-border Intercity trains are German rolling stock and they operate a number of direct services daily to Verona. As said before you can get some of the www.bahn.de specials of €39 if booked in advance.

If the times suit you more use www.bahn.de to book a ticket from Munich to Verona and you could either use www.trenitalia.com to check Italian Eurostar and regional train prices.

A eurostar train from Verona to Venice costs ~ €18 and takes about 1h11

A regional train from Verona to Venice costs ~ €6 and takes anything from 1h40 to over 2hrs

When you book a Eurostar train in Italy you are booking a seat automatically. Regional trains you are not booking a seat and tickets can be bought on the day. Please note for Regional trains you must "cancel/stamp" your ticket in one of the boxes at the station prior to your journey - like taking the metro/underground in Munich.

If fits in with your plans you can book an intercity to Verona and if enough time get off and buy a regional ticket for your connection to Venice

In Germany it pays to buy in advance online, just make sure your ticket isn't tied to plane arrival, as if it is late you lose the entire ticket, no mercy. In Italy you could buy your ticket just before you board, so you might want to get into Italy then hop off the train and buy a ticket to go onward. Warning: it's unlikely you could get back on the same train.
