Florence to Venice by Train | Italy Travel Vlog

Join as we head from Florence to Venice by train in this Italy travel vlog which also includes a full apartment tour of our airbnb in Florence as well as the new apartment we stayed at in Venice. Our day was spent killing a bit of time at our favorite pizzeria and small cafe at the train station in Florence before boarding our train. The two hour train ride from Florence to Venice went by quickly and featured some scenic winter views of snow blowing as we zoomed past rural areas. Upon arriving in Venice we checked into our airbnb before picking up our family friend Val who will be joining us for the rest of our travels through Europe.

Italy Train Travel from Florence to Venice | Apartment Tour of Florence + Venice Video Transcript:

We’re going to give you the apartment tour. So come on in. There is a really long hallway. A corridor.

A corridor and into here. We have the living room. It was perfectly adequate. I mean we had a small table and four chairs. Tiny little couch. I mean for four people it was a bit cramped. We found the biggest complaint about this place is we felt like we were a little bit on top of each other. You know we were staying here for 6 nights.

It was a little bit crowded for 4 adults yeah but the views. Right. We chose this place for the views. We need to show you. The views and location were excellent. One more time.

The views and location were excellent also really appreciated this place had central heating. Because it was cold the entire time we were here. But we were nice and toasty inside. The entire time. If you look over here we had wine glasses and we made good use of those.

We did all of our cooking here. A little fridge. We had a kettle.

And the best part I would say the best feature of this of this apartment I should say was that we both had nice big bedrooms.

Today is another easy travel day. We are only going to take a 2 hour train. Heading to Venice and the nice thing is that we have well I wouldn’t say it is so nice but we have a bit of time to kill so that means we can have a bit of a leisurely lunch. Pizza. We’re going to go to that pizza place again just because we all like it. It is cheap. It is good and it is actually on the way to the train station.

So we’ve tried a few different pizzas here at this place but this is our first time to try the four cheese one. So I’m just going to flip it up. Flip it up.

And I’ll just mention so for the four pizza slices and a couple of drinks we paid 15 Euros. It was a good deal.

So we arrived with 2 hours to kill. Yes. So we found a little cafe right in the train station. We’re all having it does not have the most beautiful train station. Very little seating so we had to find a cafe. Yeah we were lucky to find this one.

We’ve got about 5 minutes to wait for our train here. So I thought I’d ask you what did you think of Florence? I think you liked it more than Rome right? Very much more than Rome. Very walkable, the art museums were very not crowded. We didn’t feel like cattle in them. We learned from our mistakes we went early. When it first opened.

Hello from a bakery in Venice. Hello from a bakery in Venice. So we’ve arrived here. A nice short train ride. We’ve checked in and we’re pekish.

Because our next transportation day is going to be really really long. Trains and ferries. So I think we’ll actually give you a second apartment tour today.

Apartment tour. Because it is cool. It is cool and we’re here. We’ve got another person joining us on the trip. One of my parents friends Val. She is flying in from BC.

We’re just going to pick her up soon.

This is the first time we’ve had an apartment that has been two levels.

From now on it is going to be 5 travelers. Five of us for the rest of this trip in Europe. That is we’re going to sign off because we actually have to get ready to pick her up soon. We’ll see you guys on the next one. Thanks for watching. More videos from Venice soon.

This is part of our Travel in Italy video series showcasing Italian food, Italian culture and Italian cuisine.
