Two week Croatia itinerary

I have recently come back from two weeks in Croatia and thought I would share my itinerary with you as I struggled to find any when planning my trip!

We flew to Dubrovnik for our first three nights and pre booked a taxi (through taxidubrovnik) so it was cheaper to our hotel (Dubrovnik Palace). Our first afternoon was spent wandering around the city walls and having dinner at the Taj Mahal! The second day we went sea kayaking around Lokrum Island, which included lunch and snorkelling followed by an afternoon by the hotel pool and the final day we hired a car and drove to Montenegro where we visited Kotor and Budva beach before walking to Lapad bay on our return for dinner.

On day four we drove up the coast road so Split (took 3.5hours) where we checked into an apartment. We had a wander around the city and dinner....

On day five we took a ferry to Hvar where we spent six nights at the Amfora Grand Beach Resort. We spent the days lazying by the pool and the evenings eating and drinking in the amazing bars and restaurants around the town. We took a day trip to the Blue & Green Cave and Vis Island through a guy called Vinko, which was well worth it and we also hired a little motor boat (£80 - for five people) and spent the day speeding around the Pakleni Islands and anchoring up and diving off!

On leaving Hvar we took the ferry back to Split and drove to Piltvice Lakes via Krka Falls. We had pre booked a room at the Etno Houses in Piltvice Selo, which were amazing! The following day we spen the morning trekking around the lakes and taking it all in before driving to Zagreb in the afternoon.

In Zagreb we stayed at Hotel Dubrovnik and dined at Trilojica, which was the best meal we ate by far! In the morning we did a Segway tour with Zee, which was really good fun before driving back to the airport, dropping off the car and taking an inetrnal flight (45mins and £40 each) back to Dubrovnik.

On arrival at Dubrovnik airport we took a 10minute taxi ride to Cavtat to spend our last two nights in Hotel Croatia. This was a fantastic hotel, with all the facilities you could ask for. It was a short 10minute walk into a gorgeous little coastal town with bars and restaurants. It was the perfect relaxing two nights we needed to end our holiday with.

Hope this helps!

Your trip sounds awesome! FYI for future trips to Croatia, you will find tons of two-week itineraries here on TA. You did a great job without, though! :-)

A good report - I would be interested in knowing how much you used your car whilst on Hvar - was it worth taking over? And, what was so great about the Zagreb meal over all the others???

We didn't use the car in Hvar at all but it was really expensive for a one way hire for less than three days from Dubrovnik to Split and then Split to Zagreb, so the cost was the same. It also saved the hassle of returning the car at Split and taking the ferry with all our luggage followed by a bus and then hiring a new car on our return to Split but you do not need a car in Hvar at all!

The meal in Zagreb was amazing as it was a surprise tasting menu, I did write a review here on TA. The food was such good quality and so reasonably priced and the waitors made it a great experience!

Definitely try Hotel Croatia, we weren't disappointed!

Trilogija is one of the best small restaurants in Zagreb and never fails. Daily menu is formed based on what chef gets at the nearby market.

Hi, your trip sounds amazing and we are planning a similar route. Did you rent a car in split and drop it off in Zagreb? How much was the car and was it expensive to drop it off in a different location?

Also, if you did it over again, would you go back to the towns in Montenegro or just stay longer in Croatia?

Loved your itinery. Did you rent a car only for the last part of your trip? We are going early September and are doing it in reverse, starting at Zagreb, going to parts of Istria (including postojna caves on the way) before leaving for Split. Then exploring islands, etc. before finishing up at Dubrovnic.
