1The best and also the fastest option is to do this route in two segments:
1. Take a bus from Ljubljana to Trieste which departs from Ljubljana at 06:35 and arrives in Trieste at 08:50.
2. When you arrive on Trieste bus station, take your luggage and walk to the train station. It is really so close. At the train station just buy a ticket for Venice. There are plenty of trains on this route.

3Thanks for the posting! I was looking for the same info and trying to do it by train, which seems to be irrationally difficult.
One simple Eurrail map shows it as 9 hours! It's only 240 km. So I thought I would try to build the train route myself,
and maybe go through Trieste since trenitalia shows Trieste to Venice trains.
I could find a reasonable Slovenian train from Ljubljana to Sezana, Croatia which is all of 4 miles from Trieste, taking about 1 hour 45min. But to get the rest of the way to Trieste, it was going to be an insane detour of another 1:45. Is there a Grand Canyon along the border there or something? Why is this such a hard thing?

You can make it (from Sezana to Trieste) far quicker by bus.

There were direct trains from Venice to Ljubljana in the past so geography isn't the problem.

5#3 - Maybe you will not beleive me, but the real truth is that there is no direct train connection between Italy and Slovenia any more. It used to be sevaral trains even the one that was connecting Venice to Ljubljana directly on its route between Venice and Budapest, but starting from the last year, all the train connections between the two countries have been discontinued.
So, the best option is to take a direct bus from Ljubljana to Mestre which is in reality a suburb of Venice or to take a direct bus from Ljubljana to Trieste and from there by train to Venice.
The option that you have mentioned through Sežana is more complicated than the above mentioned two solutions.

7This is helpful as I am looking for ways to get to Ljubljana from Venice.
Sounds like a bus is the best way. A couple of additional questions:
- Anyone know if buses travel directly from the Venice airport to LJU?
- Would the buses be willing to take bikes as well (in a bike box)?
Thanks very much!

8This company offers shuttle services from Tresviso or from Marco Polo airports in Venice to Ljubljana. There could be other companies offering that service too, I'm not an expert in shuttle companies. I don't know if they accept bikes but I guess you can try to ask them directly.
You could take also a look at the web of the bus company making the route from Mestre to Ljubljana to see if they provide info about bikes (if not, you could try to contact them in order to get it).
