We will be arriving from US on 4/23 and want to buy the train tickets for our trip to Venice on 5/6 at the airport when we arrive, as we are leaving on a cruise on 4/24 and returning back to Civitavecchia on 5/6 at 4 AM.
Since we already have a hotel reservation for one night in Venice on 5/6, we would like to get as early a train as possible from Rome. We have read on other threads that to request a early exit from the ship and that some folks have gotten off the ship as early as 5:30 AM. That is what we planned to do.
My question is that I have pulled off the Rome - Venice train timetables off the Trentalia website. With taking the train from Civitavecchia back to Termini, do you think a 9:45 am train is feasible, or do you think we would make an 8:45 am train. If we purchased tickets for the 9:45 am train and arrive in time to catch the 8:45 am train, can we just ask to be put on the earlier train without an any additional costs.
We do not want to wait till 5/6 to buy train tickets because the room in Venice was not cheap and we would like to try to get the 15% off by buying more than a week in advance. Will be buying gof four adults.
We appreciate any advice and help on this. Don't think I will ever get to see Venice if I don't do it now.
