Traveling to Venice from Trieste? Traveling from Trieste to Venice is a popular route for anyone visiting Italy for the first time.

Although it is popular for tourists, these defined metropolises are extremely visited among Italian residents. They are both situated in the northern part of the country, which makes it convenient to plan them adjacently.

Italy has played a powerful role in Western Civilization and both of these cities have been extremely relevant since before and after. Whether you are planning to see these marvelous, historical destinations for the first time, or you are returning to explore its cracks and crevices… We have conducted a short list of the most convenient ways to get to and from.

By Train

The first being the most suggested transport for obvious reasons, is the train. As this is the quickest option to travel – you will arrive in Venice in roughly 2 and a half hours or less. For 13€ per person, we highly recommend this option, especially if you are traveling solo or in a duet.

Conveniently, all trains to Venice run from Trieste’s Central Station, speckled directly in the city center. This means you should plan your train time accordingly, as you can spend the morning enjoying Trieste’s most famous cafés and restaurants.

Renting a Car

If you are traveling in a group of four, renting a car is our next suggestion. After gas, it could end up costing more than the train or bus, but a road trip in Northern Italy can be an unforgettable experience! The drive should take you approximately 3 hours, a half hour longer than the train. It is very easy to rent a car from the Trieste Airport – many companies like Hertz, Budget, Avis, Enterprise and more offer standard vehicles for as little as 30€ per day.

The Bus

Our third and final suggestion is traveling to Venice by bus. The location of Trieste’s bus station is also conveniently centered – it is right behind Trieste Centrale, and every bus arrives at Venice’s Tronchetto bus station.

Traveling in Europe can be costly, so we suggest this option if you are looking to save a few extra euros. It will be a bit longer of a ride – normally lasting 4 hours and 10 minutes to arrive. Most buses are direct, which is why we have listed this as a liable option to get to Venice.

The buses are run by Flixbus, and tickets are normally 8€ each.

In conclusion: If you want to save time, take the train. If you want to save money, take the bus. If you want a unique experience with your friends, look into renting a car.
