I can't thank you enough, Andrew, for the detailed acct of how to find the DRD van. I'm standing in front of it right now, and had you not given me such good directions, I'd probably be walking around in circles. Thank you!!

Just an fyi, it's not a Best Western, although there is one to the left of the station. The van is parked in front of Hotel Plaza in case anyone else is trying to find it.

Ah, I knew there was a Best Western there somewhere! Just not in front of the van, LOL! Glad you were able to find the DRD van so easily - hope you had a good ride to Ljubljana!

It was great! It only took 2.5 hours (we didn't stop), and it was easy as pie. Thank you again

I also found out that it's not easy to go from Venice to Ljubljana.
I think that the way of going to Triest (beautiful town I heard) is the best option and the cheapest one. This is because me, my boyfriend and my brother and a friend of him, we are going to do a Eurotrip.
So, there is a problem with Venice - Triest ...
On the site in Belgium, to travel in Europe, they say that there isn't a way to go from Venice and Triest. I tried on the site of Italy himself, and there they said that they don't have the timetables allready for the summer. When I tried Milano to Venice, there was no problem.
So ... is this just because it's another and maybe 'not so big' trainway, that they don't have yet the timetables? It's just because I want to go farther, to have a timetable of all our trains, but it's difficult when you can't find the hours from Venice to Triest...
From Triest to Ljubljana I have to find the bus too, but first I want to find the timetable from Venice to Triest.

Can anybody help me?

EmilieR, check Trenitalia's website to find information about trains from Venice to Trieste:


Checking right now, I see there are plenty of trains daily (checking tomorrow, for example) from Venice to Trieste.

However, if you read the whole thread here, you'll see that I found a direct bus from Mestre to Lujubljana that was convenient and only 25 Euro per person. Take a short train ride from Venice to Mestre and find the DRD bus to Ljubljana.

I know but we have a train card to go in a month true Europe, so, we don't want to make costs with a DRD bus if we can go with the train too. But then I'll just wait a little bit longer so the timetables are there. And I will check the site again.

Thank you.
