Travel Info

The workshop will take place at Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava, Slovenia.

Traveling to Slovenia:

By Air

Slovenia has one airport near the capitol Ljubljana LJU It is connected to most major cities over Europe.

There are also two Italian airports that we recommend:

Trieste (TRS) which is actually closer to Vipava than Slovenian one and is bigger and has more connections.

Treviso (TSF)

Venice airport Marco Polo: offers low fare easy jet flights in addition to many standard airline connections

We recommend that you use GoOpti for transfer from your choosen airport.

GoOpti company offers shared and private rides connecting all the airports to the address of your choosing. This service can only be booked through their website. We urge you to book it as soon as possible, since it will be cheaper this way.

Train schedule for Italian trains (connecting Venice - Trieste - Gorizia can be found here: train schedule)

By Train

Ljubljana can be reached by trains from some cities around Europe. More information about this can be found here Slovenske Železnice
