I'll be traveling from italy to Istra/Rabac area july 17, and believe there is a ferry from Venice to get there (though our last leg in italy is lake garda so if there's a better way, pls advise). However, i've been reading that there are only certain days that the ferries run - is that true? If so which ferries are the best to reserve?
Then, I'm traveling from Rabac to Zadar and am inquiring about the best way there (least expensive). is it bus, ferry, rented car?
Lastly, we'll be leaving zadar back to U.S. on July 28. Again, I believe the best way is to fly - and it seems that all flights go to Zagreb first. If this is true, I'm contemplating taking another ferry or bus back to italy as my nephew has specific travel requirements since his flight is being included in his student itinerary and needs to be coming out of a major city in Europe (rome, paris, etc). Would someone pls recommend something? I don't think it best to fly from zadar to zagreb, then to a major city, then back to U.S. I need help!!
