I would knock a night off each of Split, Plitvice, Trieste and stay on an island instead. Personally, I would not choose Zagreb over Istria.

Yes way to much time in Plitvice and Zagreb, and not enough on islands or Istria!! You ask about the roads they are fine only Dubrovnik out towards Split a 100 km stretch and Plitvice lakes to Zagreb are 2 lane good roads everything else is divided 4 lane highway, but are you renting a car or still not sure? How about a 1 week cruise on small boat with only 10 rooms going Dubrovnik to Split and stopping each night at a different island, the price of these cruises is half of what you would pay for room, transport, and food anyway!! Look at this site www.katarina-line.com they are based here in Opatija! Iwould look at renting a car from Split- Plitvice, its about a 3 hour drive leave early morning, get there at noon, see Plitvice till 6 and be in Zagreb at 8 pm..2 days in Zagreb then head down here to Opatija for 1 night and day, then visit Istria, Pula, Rovinj, Motovun and you are next to Slovenia so go to Postonja for a day to see the caves and castle..Bled is great and afte a day there Venice to Bled is only 2,5 to 3 hours by car...realy study the maps and you will be amazed how close Istria, Slovenia and Venice are to each other when visiting by car! Bus and or train is a horror story in many cases, o to try and keep you on schedule and keep your sanity try and have a car with you!!
