Travelling from Klagenfurt to Florence

My husband and I are doing a European trip and the hiccup in the middle of a pretty much cast in stone itinerary, is the travelling from Klagenfurt to Florence in September. Flights are out of the question, crazy prices! I was hoping to do a train trip during the day to enjoy the countryside, but I am going from one web site to another, and nothing seems to be easy or even bookable. We are not averse to bus, but train would be first prize, or a combination. Is it easier or cheaper during the week or weekends? We don't have a lot of time to play with for the trip. We are active 60 year olds, and will have our big cases with us.

Any ideas we would be most grateful.

As there aren't any trains between Klagenfurt and Italy (except night train), you need to take the bus (which is operated by Austrian Railways ÖBB as a replacement for the day-time trains which ran some years ago). These buses link Klagenfurt/Villach and Venice. In any case you need to contract with Austrian Railways ÖBB (www.oebb.at/en) - at least for the cross-border part.
