Night Train Vienna-Venice

Flight from Vienna to Venice

Of course you can also fly the route from Vienna to Venice. The flight time is around 2 hours. Then there is the way from Vienna city centre to the airport. The same in Venice, from the airport back to the city centre. Be there in good time, check-in, etc.

Sustainable is, of course, not to sit in a subsidised plane for a short time. Everyone has to decide for themselves at what point they start doing something for Planet Earth. And on this route, from Vienna to Venice, it's really easy.

On the night train you save transfers and waiting times. In addition, a Night at the hotelwhich is not really cheap in both cities. It is simply a relaxed shape to travel. Definitely more relaxed and communicative than in a tightly squeezed plane.

Decide for yourself whether you want to preserve our planet or continue to contribute to its destruction. Travelling is not the problem, but the "how" is..

    1. Hi, sorry for the late reply. In general, nightjet tickets can be purchased 180 days before departure. Sometimes the sale is only released at short notice if there are roadworks or the like - and the journey on a certain date is not safe. Best regards, Peter 🙂
