Split to Venice

A friend and I are planning on traveling from Split to Venice on 8 or 9 June 13. What would be the most economical way as well as the most scenic? We don't want to have too many transfers, we are "active" seniors but not up to "hitching" these days. Have thought of coach or train. Is there an overnight train which may be suitable and where would we find info on timetables and prices? We are OK with a hotel stay on the way as well. We would like to do it in 2 days so we can have about 4 days in Venice.

Have also thought of a ferry to Italy and then train to Venice - any advice here? Don't want to look at ocean for the whole trip, would rather see sights as we go past. Thanks

Best bet is the overnight train from Zagreb which gets you right to Venice and steps from the water taxis by 7:30AM. You can take the same train back at night which arrives 6-8AM in Zagreb. Cheap, sleep, you're there!

There is also a Split-Trieste bus. It goes 21:30 every night. In Trieste is around 7, and later you can catch the train to Venice (train station and bus station in Trieste are just next to each other)

p.s. there were rumors that the Zagreb-Venice train line is going to be cancelled, but I am not sure what happened regarding this

Cheapest travel from Croatian to Venice's bus trip. Bus Croatia Bus dd leaves from the bus station in Zagreb to Trieste every day. Price of a ticket is 160 million, while the price of a return ticket 256 kuna. In Trieste, you must change trains (bus and train stations are next to each other) on the train to Venice. (drive very often) Price train from Trieste to Venice ranges from € 10 one way.

Easier transportation options is going to Venice to Pula, from where regular line company Brioni can come directly to Venice. Price of return tickets from Pula to Venice is about 250 kuna.

Besides the company Brioni, at the same price (from Medulin) you can travel to Venice and bus operator Fils.

Directly from Zagreb to Venice driving bus operator Euroturist Express, however bus line connects the two cities only twice a week (departure on Fridays and return on Saturday), and you'll probably be forced to use one of the following transportation options.
