Piran or Rovinj between Ljubljana and Trieste (or day trip)

Jump to last reply

I have six nights for this portion of my trip. Right now I have 3 Ljubljana (day trip to Bled), then two in Rovinj and one in Trieste (then go on to other parts of Italy). But now that I look at the logistics I see I'll be spending 6 hours on a bus to get from Ljubljana to Rovinj and another three to get from Rovinj to Trieste. So I'm wondering if Rovinj is 'worth' about nine hours bus ride versus going to Piran which is 2.5hr from Ljubljana and 1.5 from Trieste - so less than half the time total? I don't want to rent a car.

So - how much better is Rovinj than Piran?

If I choose Piran would you suggest overnighting there (so total of 3 hotels in 6 nights) or do it as a day trip from Trieste or Ljubljana (and if so which one)?

I am a photographer and mostly just like to explore back streets, climb hills for great views, sit and look at the sea, etc.
