  1. Ill be doing the same thing next month. It seems like the taxi ride from port to the train station is 15-20 minutes. Then the Treinitalia trains run at least one an hour. The fares are quite reasonable ranging from 80-150 Euros for a party of six. You'll have to switch trains at either Bologna or Ferrara then straight to San Lucia station in Venice. From San Lucia it is about a 20-30 minute walk to Rialto bridge.
  2. Thanks to those who responded. I shall go ahead and purchase in advance. This cruise was sort of planned hastily and when my wife kept saying it ended in Venice, I urged her to stay at least one night in Venice afterwards. I had no idea that Ravenna was about 3 hours away until last night! I think its somewhat disingenuous of RCL to designate Ravenna as being quite proximal to Venice. I understand that this is common practice ( Rome/Civitavecchia Orlando/Port Canaveral), but in this case its about 3 hours away!
  3. Hello. I tried searching for this specific topic but seems like most are interested in getting from Venice to Ravenna. We will be disembarking on Sunday May 15th at Ravenna. I was wondering if anyone has recently taken the train from Ravenna station to San Lucia Venice? I would imagine there would be plenty of taxis to take us from the port to the train station. Please correct me if this assumption is wrong. My other concern is if I need to pre-book the train tickets, my acquaintance suggested that obtaining a train ticket is rather easy. However I would imagine that plenty of cruise passengers leaving the port would have the same idea that day. Any advice would be appreciated. I don't really have any interest in booking anything through RCL as they have not been the most reliable from my experience. TIA
  4. I'm having the same issue, but the most cost effective method seems to be by train. A 15-20 minute taxi ride from the port to the train station is supposedly all it takes. Then one must hop on TreinItalia for the 3 hour ride to Venice (San Lucia). As you step out of the San Lucia station, you'll get a near immediate view of the Grand Canal. The San Lucia station is supposedly about a 25 minute walk to Rialto Bridge. Now all this information is based on the 60 minute googling and youtubing I did. If anyone has any updates, please share. I was a looking at a train ride for 6 people which seemed to range from about 50 to 130 Euros. Additionally, the trains seemed to leave every hour which sounds rather convenient.
