Getting from Rovinj to Venice on Sunday, May 6 2012

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'm hoping someone can help me...if not, I've emailed the Rovinj tourist office, hopefully they'll have an answer.

I'm trying to get from Rovinj to Venice on Sunday, May 6. With buses on the off-season schedule and Sunday hours for car rental locations and the ferry, my options seem limited. Normally, I'd just go with the flow except I've got work meetings starting 9am on Monday, May 7 in Venice.

Here are the options I've found based on online research:
#1 - Drive to Rijeka, bus to Trieste, train to Venice.
- Details: Sunday, May 6, 10am leave Rovinj. 11:30am return car to AutoEurope office in Rijeka (car rentals seem to close at 12pm Sundays). 2pm Autotrans bus to Trieste. 5:02pm Italia Rail train to Venice arriving 7:08pm on Sunday.
- Comments: This looks like the best scenario, but I'm relying on everything (car, bus, and train trips) going smoothly.

#2 - Skip Rovinj and spend night in Pula, take bus to Trieste, train to Venice.
- Details: Saturday, May 5 return car and spend the night in Pula. Sunday, May 6, 6am bus from Pula to Trieste. 5:02pm Italia Rail train to Venice arriving 7:08pm on Sunday.
- Comments: I'd rather stay in Rovinj than Pula, and don't love the idea of catching a 6am bus...ugh!

#3 - Ferry to Venice.
- Details: Friday, May 4 return car in Pula and take local bus to Rovinj. Saturday, May 5 take 7am Venezia Lines ferry to Venice.
- Comments: This really cuts out sightseeing for Croatia. The earliest I can get to the Istrian Peninsula is the afternoon of Friday, May 4...so I'd pretty much return the car, take the bus, grab dinner, and go to bed.

Option #1 is probably my best option, but I'd only do it if the transportation links are fairly reliable. Does anyone know of any other options or have any feedback on how reliable traffic, buses, and trains will be? I'll get advance reservations/tickets for the train and bus.

Thanks!!!
