After 3 days in Venice, we leave for Florence by train from Santa Lucia train station in Venice into Santa Maria Novella train station, Florence. The journey is 2 hours & 5 minutes and the ride was comfortable and smooth. Like we previously experienced, our destination Florence was not listed on the departure information board as Florence is in between the final destination of the train’s journey. To find out which platform the train will be, look for the train number and departure time on your ticket. Cross reference this data with the departure information and we see that train 9427 leaving at 12:25 is heading to Napoli. That’s the train we want to get on.
