Venice to Lake Bled

Hi

I'm heading to Venice in July and then to Bled for a weekend and then back to Venice(that's where our return flight is from).

What is that best way of travelling between the two?

Thank you.

Oh, and can some please recommend a good hotel on/close to the lake?

The best is probably to rent a car in Venice. It is 3.5 hours from Venice to lake Bled. Hotels closer to lake bled are Hotel Toplice and Park Hotel - ask for rooms with lake view.

If you are looking for private accomodation: (B&B - hotel or pension Berc - same family, 2 garni-pension www.berc-sp.si), family runed self catering perhaps apartments at Union (very large appartments)www.union-bled.com

Hi Ahiles

Thanks for your reply. Neither of us drive so can't rent a car. I was there before but travelled to Ljubiana and then onto Bled. Do trains run regularly from Venice to Ljubiana?

I remember the train was during the day? Does anyone have a time table or a website to check the times?

Hi,

you have two directions!

-via Ljubljana night 21.20h

and

-via Villach more trains/buses

.

.

If you will take via Villach is your exit station Lesce Bled(1st after Jesenice)

Sorry, I've been away in New York for the past week.

Thanks for your reply.

I'd rather travel during the day. What are my options for that?

What about taking a ferry to piran or izola and then a train? or does that take longer?

Thanks for all the ideas so far.

I'm arriving in Venice on a Wednesday and then heading to Bled (hopefully) on the Friday morning. Then spend the weekend in Bled and head back to Venice on the Monday morning.

I was in December from Bled to Venice by car and it was OK. The road taxes in Italy are aprox. 13 euro (to Venice and back) and you have to buy 6 month vignette for Slovenia which is 35 euro.

The Jadran hotel is OK if you are not very "precious", very clean, good food and the lake view is fantastic. Also the Park hotel is nice place to stay and of course Toplice hotel who is perfect but to expensive for me.

I was looking on this website

www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

It will get me from Venice to Lake Bled but it's 8 hours of travel. Does anyone know of a quicker route? I won't be driving so can't do that.
