Ljubljana to Trieste


I understand that this topic has been raised many times - but I am wondering if anyone can give any updated information?

I'm thinking that the two options I have are to either travel by train to Sezana, and then a taxi to Trieste, or to take a train to Koper, and a bus to Trieste.

Does anyone have any alternatives, and any advice as to which taxi firm we should use? Also, does anyone have any bus timetable information?

You can take a bus directly from Ljubljana to Trieste if you can leave early in the morning:


Click on Ljubljana.

Looks like you are pretty safe in taking the direct bus at 5:10a daily from Ljubljana. There's another bus leaving a bit later at 6:45a but it's listed as "Weekdays" which may mean not on Sunday or holidays. The 5:10a bus looks like a faster bus, though.

Otherwise: yes, take a train to Sezana and a bus or taxi from there to Trieste.

Here is the site for Slovenian train info:




(Hint: Trieste is spelled "Trst" in Slovenian.)

Thank you!

Does anyone know if an inter-rail pass would be valid on buses?

No, Interrail pass will be valid only on SZ train Ljubljana-Sezana

p.s. also kind of an alternative, but consider it only in case you have time. You can travel by rail via Jesenice to Nova Gorica (views on Bohinj Railway are gorgeous), then walk/take city bus from Nova Gorica station to Gorizia train station and catch local Italian train to Trieste. And as a bonus, in this case pass will cover both trip till Nova Gorica and from Gorizia to Trieste ;)
