From Budapest to Venice by train?

We wish to travel from Budapest to Venice, spend a few days there and travel on to Rimini, Italy. What is the best way? Pass or Point-to-point? Are there any interesting stops between Budapest and Venice to spend a day?

      Hi Lyn,

      I'm sorry, the post above is from 7 years ago. I'm note sure where you saw it say that there are 2 trains per day.

      For travel from Budapest to Venice, there one feasible option during the daytime and then there is one feasible overnight option. Both involve changing trains once in Vienna en route.

      Daytime Connection from Budapest to Venice

      The daytime connection from Budapest to Venice takes about 10.5 hours in duration and involves changing trains once in Vienna along the way. The trains making up this connection are both Railjet trains.

      The day train from Vienna to Venice follows along a renowned scenic line called the Semmering Railway. This stretch of railway starts as your Vienna-Venice train passes through Wiener Neustadt/Gloggnitz not long after you leave Vienna and culminates as you pass through Mürzzuschlag/Bruck an der Mur.

      You can check schedules and purchase tickets from Budapest to Vienna just by searching this segment of the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Generally, these trains can be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date.

      However, the direct day train from Vienna to Venice is currently not able to be viewed or booked on our website.

      Overnight Connection from Budapest to Venice

      To pull up the overnight train from Vienna to Venice, you would follow the same procedure.
