Trieste-RovinjLooking at a map, Trieste seams relative close to Rovinj, the distance between the cities is about 100 km, but as the airport in Trieste is situated 45 km outside (Trieste No-borders Airport in Monfalcone) of Trieste in direction of Venice, there is almost 150 km between the airport in Trieste and Rovinj town centre.

A distance of 150 km would normally not take long time to travel, but as there is no end to end highway connection, the travel time by car is about 2 hours, and if there is jam at the border it might taken even longer time. Below I have listed “how to” travel between Trieste airport and Rovinj using various means of transportation.

  1. By Car, the most direct route from Triest airport to Rovinj goes via Triest, Koper and enters into Croatia by the border crossing in Dragonja, the estimated travel time by Google maps is 1 hour 50 minutes. Alternative routes are via the border crossing Sočerga (See map below), and then via Buzet and Motovon or Buzet and Pazin in Croatia, both alternative route are about 20 km longer and with an estimated travelling time of 2 hours and 15 minutes.

  1. By bus, between the Airport in Trieste and Trieste main bus station, there are plenty of buses most weekdays, you can see the connections here, from Trieste bus station to Rovinj, the number of daily departures is limited, you can see timetable here. Travel time by bus is about 4.5 to 5 hours.
