Quickest Cheapest Way to Get from Prague to Venice on a Monday?

Greetings wise & much more experienced travelers!

My wife and I are taking our first big trip in May 2014. We begin in Prague with next stop in Venice. I've started poking around a bit & to my suprise, can't seem to find any direct flights to Venice out of Prague on a Monday. The indirect flights I have seen are much higher cost than I expected & travel times are very long in my quick search. Any suggestions? Is it quicker &/or cheaper to fly into somewhere else in Italy & express train into Venice?

Appreciate any suggestions & feedback!

Check http://flyairone.com/ for flights.

I checked on Mondays, and no flights were scheduled. AirOne prices are inexpensive on Tuesdays vs. Mondays and Wednesdays. AirOne does fly into Pisa from Prague, however I didn't check the departures.

Czech Airlines flies to Milan, and you could possibly catch a train into Venice.

Sometimes you've just got to roll with the flow when it comes to international travel. Italian train fares are very inexpensive, and trains to popular places like Venice are very frequent.

You'd probably need to get a reservation on a fast train if you were flying into Pisa or Milan.

As David mentioned, if you can change your schedule by one day, Air One has cheap flights from Prague to Venice every Tuesday.

Another cheap, but of course slower, alternative is to go by bus. You'd have to adjust your schedule for the bus as well - it only runs on Wednesdays & Saturdays. It's an overnight trip (6:00 PM to 6:40 AM).

David & Tom,

Thanks for you posts!

I just wanted to be sure I wasn't overlooking something. My schedule is pretty well set. I'll check AirOne into Pisa & train times/schedules from there to Venice. Milan looks pretty close to Venice on the map relative to other large cities so I'll check flights & train times from there as well.

Again, thanks for taking time to respond!

I once took a cheap Wizz Air flight from Prague to Treviso, with a direct shuttle bus to Mestre (then it was a quick connection to Venice proper). I can't remember which day of the week it was, but I do remember that it had been a very early morning flight and it was very easy to get into Venice.
