Small airport with direct flights
Trieste – Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport is quite small and only has some international Ryanair flights and one daily flight to London. It also has direct flights to Birmingham every day in summer, and three times a week in winter. Getting there isn't difficult - there's a bus that leaves every hour or so from the station, and it costs 3 euros to get to the city center. It takes an hour; if you go by car, it'll take 45 minutes. The nearest town, Montfalcone, is 3km away. The number 51 bus takes you to Trieste, and there are also some buses to Venice. There are no direct buses to Croatia, but the number 51 takes you to a spot where you can take a bus to Rijeka or Pula, as well as Slovenia.
