Driving from Venice to Rijeka
I have conflicting information about driving into Rijeka Croatia. Hertz claims that I cannot drive into/thru Slovenija. The only way I can see to get from Trieste to Rijeka is to travel on E61. This will put me in Slovenija for a short time. Any ideas or thoughts.

This is an easy four hour drive - with some opportunities for interesting modest diversions that could make it into a rewarding one-day journey. Perhaps the person at Hertz with whom you've spoken has only a hazy knowledge of European geography. To avoid Slovenia would involve a huge detour through Austria and Hungary.

It would be wise to ascertain well in advance that Hertz' insurance arrangements permit you to take their vehicles on the route in intend. If you decide against driving, it is, by the way, an interesting train journey.
