I have heard there is a bus one can take from Venice to Opatija without transferring. It seems the bus might originate from Padua, go through Venice and Opatija then end up at some other Istria city. Has anyone heard of this? If so, where can I find the cost, schedule and other particulars. Thank you very much.
I didn't hear for that conection. And I also doubt it exists. I checked Autotrans, local (Istrian) bus company webpage, and there are no buses to Venice from Opatija nore Rijeka (which is larger and more imprtant city). There are buses from Pula thou, served by Eurolines. Autotrans has several busas a day between Opatija and Pula.
I'm planning the same trip myself. If you take a train from Venice to Trieste you can get a bus to Opatiji. Details are on the autotrans website
