Enough time to see Miramare Castle?

Hello - my husband and I will be traveling from Florence to Triestre via train on Sunday, May 19th (one week away). Our lodging that night is in Rovinj, Croatia. Our train arrives at 14:10 and the bus for Pula/Rovinj leaves at 18:00. We would love to see the Miramare Castle but are not sure if there would be enough time to get there, tour it, and make it back in time to catch our bus. Opinions? If anyone knows of a driver who could drive us to the castle and possibly then on to Rovinj we would be open to that option also.....

I think it's doable, especially if your train stops at Miramare railway station.

A regional train from Venice stops in Miramare at 14.06.

To avoid the traffic on the way back you could take the 17:10 train from Miramare to Trieste Centrale.

Buy all train tickets directly in Florence.

It took me about 1:30 hours to tour the Miramare property and admire the castle from the outside. Another hour should be enough for the inside, totalling at 2:30. Not sure where the Miramare train station is, but you should catch that 17:10 train to Trieste. Some pictures from my trip - http://srdjanicanic.travellerspoint.com/2/.

It's a shame you can't spend more time in Trieste as well, as it's a beautiful city. To make up for it, take a look at my MTB Street view movies from Trieste - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DNfYc02Kzw and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTlrzOcewWQ. Then watch the one from Rovinj, to see why missing Trieste may still be worth it ;) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M35I33JH00.
