From Vienna/Salzburg/Budapest to Venice

Hi

Which route is the most convenient to Venice? From Vienna or Salzburg or Budapest?

I am thinking of taking a non stop night train.

Thanks

Vienna is the most sensible choice I think

EN944 leaves Vienna at 20:56, arriving in Venice at 08:24

If from Salzburg, EN1199 leaves Salzburg at 22:07, but then you need to catch the same train EN944 at Villach, at about 3am in the morning

From Budapest, EN462 leaves at 21:10 from Budapest Keleti station, need to change in Munich at 07:38, this is a very LONG journey (other option with more train changes)

From Salzburg you would leave at 1:34 am, once in Villach carriages are coupled to EN237, arriving in Venice at 8:24 am (no need to get off and get on again in Villach).

Vienna is half the way between Budapest and Salzburg. Why backtracking?

I will arrive at Vienna and depart from Vienna too. I am thinking to visit Budapest and Salzburg as well. Any suggestion for better route? Or shall I just do day trip to Salzburg from Vienna instead?

Well... you could depart from Salzburg to Venice after having been in Vienna. There are also day trains, not only night ones.

Hi Frecciadellalaguna90, for the night train, do you mean I can sit in all the way from Salzburg to Venice, without the need to get off /get on the train at Villach?

Thanks for clarify

Moreover, those carriages arrive in Salzburg from Vienna at 11:56 pm before leaving at 01:34 am. I don't know, but I suppose, that you would be allowed to get onboard immediately after the arrival.
