We will be traveling from Venice to Monterosso next June. I know specific train schedules are not out yet but in looking at current schedules ( should be fairly similar next June) we can ride from Venice with 1 stop through Milan or from Venice through Florence and Pisa with 2 stops . The Milan route is 2 fast trains while the Florence Pisa route requires 2 regional trains.
Which route is preferable? I am assuming the Milan one is as its only 1 stop and we can buy ticket in advance and get seat reservations. What if the 1st train from Venice is delayed missing the 2nd half of the reservation. How does that work?
Riding the Florence route with regional trains means we could end up standing, correct? We will have our luggage with us.
Thanks for any advise. I know our trip is a ways off but trying to put together our itinerary.
