Take any direct train at the time you want. The direct train numbers will differ based on the time.

Hi. Look at website trenitalia.com, use Venezia SL and Roma, you will see there are direct trains once an hour. There is also a competing company Italo that provides similar service. Have a great trip!

Italo’s website is a bit more user-friendly, and their trains are very nice. And their conductor was ver;y kind and helpful to us when we mistakenly boarded the wrong train out of Bologna.

Remember it is the train number that you look for, not the train destination.
Your Vennice-Rome train might have Naples as its destination.
So look for the train number on the departures board at Venice.

A quick check of schedule suggests two to three trains an hour -- about four hours depending on train. Don't know what you mean by "best way." Just pick a departure time that meets your schedule. Personally I would go late morning arriving in Rome in mid-pm. Pack a bottle of wine and light picnic lunch and enjoy the ride.

Thank you for these helpful responses.

Is this difficult with six people and luggage? We're flying into Venice staying for a few days and then headed to Rome. Any helpful suggestions?

Hello vintagemorning and welcome to the forum!

As long as each person can handle their own luggage it’s not difficult
Hopefully you are all traveling light-
