Getting to your destination


It’s no wonder that the capital of Friuli Venezia Giulia is a lively city: the locals drink twice as much coffee as anyone else in Italy. As well as a seriously buzzing cafe culture Trieste offers plenty in the way of art and culture: James Joyce once called the city home.

It takes about 40 minutes to drive into Trieste from the airport. There are lots of multi-storey car parks in Trieste, many of which charge a flat day rate of around €10-16 (about £7.33-11.73). There’s a surface car park near the port. If you’re staying overnight with a rental car it’s always best to choose accommodation in Trieste with parking facilities.


The capital of Slovenia is beautiful and packed with cultural attractions. There’s so much to do that a top 10 doesn’t do it justice: we’ve had to write about our top 11 things to do in Ljubljana instead.

Trieste is very close to the Slovenian border, so if you can’t find any flights to Ljubljana you can fly to Trieste instead. It only takes an hour and 20 minutes to drive to Ljubljana from Trieste Airport. Parking in the city falls into four different zones. The city centre is short term parking only, with time limits of 30 minutes to two hours. Parking meters don’t give change, so make sure you bring plenty of coins.

Trieste is a great alternative if you can’t find any flights to Venice. It takes an hour and ten minutes to drive to the city from the airport.

It costs €26 (about £19.20) for 12 hours, or €30 (about £22.20) for 24 hours.
