Slovenia-Rent car Or use Public Transportation?

Jump to last reply

Would appreciate any advice since leaving USA in 2 weeks, April 1, 2016 for Europe.

I'll be in Slovenia-my heritage- on April 12, 2016 for the very first time for 8 days. We'll be in Ljubljana and from there visit my Grandparents towns they grew up in for a day trip: Krska Vas+Smarijta (near Novo Mesto) and Krajno Brdo. Also will be traveling to Lake Bled, Kranjska Gora and Piran.

Question #1: Seeing where I will be, do you recommend renting a car instead of using public transportation for saving time+expense? Is it easy for an American to rent a car in Slovenia?...I've read that an IDL is not required in Slovenia?

Question #2: I've also read that the seaside resort town, Piran, is pretty much a ghost town until early May. We were planning on relaxing there around April 18-20. Will restaurants be open then and will the weather be warm enough to be by the sea?

Thanks in advance for any help!
