Hi - My husband and I have nine nights for our vacation in May. We went to Croatia last year and LOVED Dubrovnik and Korcula. We are now wanting to see other parts of Croatia and have heard great things about the Rovinj area. We are in our 40s and love cute towns where we can walk around all day taking pictures, eating, drinking (beer), and enjoying the locals and the beauty of the country.
Please provide me feedback on this potential itinerary:
Fly from Detriot to Venice (we love Venice and the flights seem much less expensive than flying into Croatia).
2 nights in Venice and then take ferry to Rovinj.
3 nights in Rovinj.
3 nights in Pula or Zadar....?
Ferry from Pula or Zadar back to Venice.
1 night in Venice and then fly out the next morning.
We would like to visit Plitvice Lakes Park, does it make more sense to make the day trip from one place verse the other?
Preference between Pula or Zadar? Which place has more to do and see?
Are we staying too many nights in two locations, and we'd be better off adding another location?
Are we hitting the fun spots in northern Croatia? Are we missing "must see" spots?
It appears that the ferry schedule only shows two months, is there a way to know which days the ferries to/from Venice will run in May?
Any input, suggestions, tips would be appreciated!
