Although the Byzantines only controlled Izola for a short time over a thousand years ago, the regional bus operator Veolia has apparently dedicated their timetables to the notoriously complex empire. The arrival and departure times are affixed with a dizzying array of letters and symbols (up to seven characters long) denoting the days and seasons that the listed time is actually in operation, which inevitably leads to much double- and triple-checking accompanied by understandable frustration. The good news is that buses to Portorož and Piran, and to Koper and onward to the rest of Slovenia run frequently from the outside the main post office on Cankarjev Drevored.
Arriving by Car
From Ljubljanatake the A1 motorway to Koper, and follow the signs to Portorož which will take you the remaining 4km along the coast on Route 111. From Trieste in Italy take the S15 south to Koper and follow the directions above. There is a large public car park next to the port.
