train: Venice to Rome

I will end my travels near Venice and will fly home from Rome. I plan to take the train. Will I need a combination of the regional train and the quick train? My hope is to arrive in Rome around noon or early afternoon, so that I'll have some time to walk around before dinner, a good night's sleep and my flight the following day. I DO want as much time in Rome as possible. Thanks.

In Great Britain a couple of times, but that was long ago and this is my first trip to Italy, which I have wanted to visit ever since I saw the funeral of Pope John Paul I (yes, the first) so many years ago.
