We are flying into Venice January 1st at 16.45 in the afternoon. But, we want to start our trip in Rome (can't fly in there, long story). So what we want to do is take the train to Rome that same day because Jan 1st, is a holiday so perfect for travel.
The train to Rome leaves Venice S L at 18:30, or from Mestre at 19:05
Would this be doable considering we need to clear customs, get to venice and have 2 1 year olds (in backpacks).
How long does it take us to get from Marco Polo airport to Venice/Mestre? And which option would be best for us to take?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And if more info is needed, please let me know.
