Bari - Train to Venice

Recommended Posts

Hello,  We are disembarking off MSC Opera on a Saturday and are wanting to take a train to Venice, as soon as is possible.


*  Is there only 1 train station to consider?

* What is the earliest would you say is safe to book the train for?

* What mode of transport to take from the ship to the train station?  Is there taxi's readily available at the pier?

Thank you !

There is a 9:32 Frecce from Bari Centrale that arrives to Venice at 17:35 (5:35 PM) or a later one at 11:32 that arrives at 19:35 (both trains require a change at Bologna, there are no direct trains between Bari and Venice until 2:30 in the afternoon).  I would choose one of these and base the decision on the time of your arrival.  The first might be a bit of a push, but likely do-able if you have a "normal" arrival and disembarkation time.  The later is the safe option.


Only Trenitalia serves Bari so it's your only choice.


It's only a mile and a half from the port to Bari Centrale, the station you need.  I've never disembarked there so I can't say for sure, but I would imagine taxis would be available and plentiful.
