Bus Venice/Mestre to Pula Croatia - HELP PLEASE

Hey There,

Trying to book an itinerary around Croatia but finding it very difficult with bus/ferry schedules. We arrive in Venice on June 15 and would like to leave on the 18. I know a ferry through Venizia lines would be the easiest but there schedule would take away from all the time we want to spend in Venice and Pula. Bus seems like the next best choice. Can anyone tell us a bus company that goes from Venice/Mestre to Pula on a daily basis? Can we book online or do we book when we get there?

Thank you

London

Sofie-beth,

The cost is Euro 24 pp each way, plus Euro 1 per bag.

You can make reservations at fils@fils.hr several days in advance if you want and then pay the bus driver when you board.

In either direction the bus stops at the same locations: Mestre; Palmanova; Trieste, (all in Italy); and Buzet; Pazin; Zminj; Vodnjan, and Pula (in Croatia).

The bus travels through a tiny slice of Slovenia en route and there is a stop there for passport control.

Total mileage between Venice and Pula is just 163 miles. However the trip takes 5.5 hours, so you can plan on lengthy pauses at each stop.

The coach does not have a restroom on board, but with stops every 30 minutes or so, there really is not much need.

The bus to Venice leaves from the Pula bus station in the city center at 5:00 am and arrives in Venice at 10:45 am.

Does anybody know how to find it from Pula to Venice? We were planning on getting the ferry there and the bus back because as far as I can see, the ferry only runs a couple of days a week?

Also how long should we allow for the journey roughly?

Thanks :)

Please read the post immediately above yours. The last paragraph may be of great assistance. The bus runs daily.

Have a pleasant trip.

Susan,

You can find all the fils iinformation at www.fils.hr.

When finished with the website, email Tanja at fils@fils.hr with questions.

But before doing that, read post #12 on this thread which may answers a lot of your questions.

Enjoy your holiday.
