You can go to their website, this one is in English. www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp…
Then use the Italian names of the train stations
Florence is Firenze S. M. Novella
Venice is Venezia S. Lucia
Put in an earlier hour like 7 to see more train options for a particular day.
When you purchase a ticket print your confirmation and travel with that to serve as your ticket when the train inspector comes around. A reserved fast train(Freccia) does not need ticket validation and will have your seat number on it as well.
I hope this helps
Please also see post#3 in the following, for explanations of the price structure
For the best prices, book shortly after tickets go on sale, usually 4 months before travel.
