Departing by train

photoTo reach the trains, enter the station via the main stairs or the wheelchair- and stroller-friendly side entrance (see FAQ: Disabled travelers) and go through the lobby to the doors which lead to the platforms.

Tips:

  • photoYou'll find ticket counters staffed by clerks at the left end of the station hall, but if you want to avoid standing in line, use the automated ticket-vending machines in the station. (You'll see two types: green "Regionale" machines for trains to Mestre and other locations near Venice, and red Trenitalia machines for destinations throughout the country.)

  • photoElectronic signboards and screens show train departure times and tracks.

  • Be sure to validate your ticket at the entrance to the train platform before boarding the train. (Look for machines on posts near the tracks.) If you forget, you'll be subject to a large fine.

  • If your train is departing from platform 15 to 23, bear left as you leave the station hall and go to the second train shed, which is through a passage beyond the deposito bagagli or left-luggage office.

  • Need to use the WC? Read our FAQ: Toilets page.

  • Do you want to eat in the station or buy a snack for the train? See our FAQ: Food and shopping page.
