    Could you tell me how to get from Pula Airport to Rovinj Bus Station? I have been quoted 44 euros for taxi which I think is expensive. I would be very grateful for your help.

      Hi Deb,

      Pula Airport to Rovinj bus station is a long distance, so 44euros would make sense for a taxi ride. If you want a cheaper transportation option, you could take a bus from Pula airport to Pula’s main bus station, then take a bus from there to Rovinj’s main bus station.

      Hi HL,

      There is not a number on the bus. It leaves from the main bus station in Pula (Autobusni Kolodvor).
