20 euros to Trieste sounds about right. But that's one-way. RT for 40 euros is kinda high. And then you'd have to add the inconvenience of bus schedules and finding your way around without speaking the language. That's why I preferred taking a ferry directly into Dubrovnik or Zadar or Losinj (I think the ones for Dubrovnik leave from Ancona or Bari, not Rimini). I just saw there's a ferry from Ravenna to Rovinj so hopefully that won't be too expensive. But for 40 euros I can fly budget air to a ton of places so the idea of a train to Trieste for a few hours, then a few transfers leaves me kinda meh. I just wish RyanAir would fly to Zagreb from Bologna. That would make things much easier. Trieste is also a major bottleneck it seems. I'm planning to visit Ljubljana and Bled while in Italy and will have to take the train to Trieste, get a bus to the Italian/Slovenian border, take the taxi to the border crossing, walk across the border, take another taxi, take another bus, take another train to Ljubljana that has low frequency. I really wish there could be a direct rail link or air link between the Balkans and Italy (you'd think there would be one given how long Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire with Slovenia and Croatia) -_-^^ Acctualy if you are student in Italy, the cheapest way to come to Croatia is using the train to Trieste ( I think the ticket Bologna - Trieste is around 20 euros for students) and then from Trieste to my hometown by bus. From my hometown you can take a ferry all over Croatia (Liburnija), only you can't come to Istria. :cheers:
