Ciao! I am traveling with checked luggage from the US direct flight to FCO. That flight arrives at 10:40am.
Directly after I arrive, retrieve bags, and clear customs, I would like to fly one-way to Venice. This is considerably cheaper than other alternatives I've investigated.
My preferred option to fly from FCO to Venice is the 1:25pm flight. The next flight would be 5:35pm.
My question is, do I have enough time to retrieve bags, clear customs and get from terminal 3 to terminal 1 in time to board the 1:25pm flight at FCO? Also, if we miss that flight, would the airline allow us to take the next flight if there is room? Or can you book the fast train within a few hours as reservations are required? Trying to decide if likelihood of catching 1:25pm flight is reasonable or if I should just book the 5:35pm and play it safer. I don't want to be in a situation where we cannot get to Venice that day.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
