Piran to Venice

Hi all,

Just wondering if we should stick to using a bus / train service from Piran to Venice or if I can rely on the Go Opti shuttle service which seems to be inexpensive if we book now for our trip in June. Any comments on either option would be appreciated. Thanks.

You can catch Piran-Trieste bus (or Koper-Trieste, which are more frequent), while from there Venice is really easy reachable by multiple trains

When I was last in Piran (2011), the bus from Piran to Trieste did not run on Sunday - when I needed to get to Venice. (I don't think buses were running from Koper either). So I took a taxi - my B&B owner helpfully offered this service for 40 Euros. Then I took the train on to Venice from Trieste. A little expensive but worked out well enough.

I didn't know of the GoOpti option in 2011 (if it was even running then), but if it were available for less than 40 Euros or saved a significant amount of travel time, perhaps I would have used it.

Is it better to go to Venice from Piran by train. We had planned to do a day trip by the ferry.

No train from Piran, you need to go to Trieste/Trst(via bus/taxi) and than you can take the train to Venice..
