Italy, Croatia, Hungary

Planning a Croatian/Hungarian trip in November. I just found out we will have family heading to Italy in November as well. I am now thinking about flying into Italy for a few days, taking a ferry or cheap flight over to Croatia and traveling up the coast, then taking a train into Budapest from Zagreb, and flying back from Budapest. Does this seem like too much? We are planning to be gone 8-12 days (most likely 12). Any input is appreciated!

8-12 days does seem ok time, but when you add the travel on top of them, it becomes too much. You will lose several days on travelling, so I guess it would be smart to cut down on your appetites. It also depends on your preferences - one day/one town (which also means more miles) or have a base and make daytrips around... Help us with your preferences to help you better.

I am not sure. Family is flying into Florence and then moving on to Alba, so I think we could fly into Florence for 2 days then take a train to Ancona in order to catch a ferry across to Split. Someone told me I would most likely have to rent a car in order to travel up the coast. Is that the case?

I planing on 4 days traveling through Croatia and then 4-5 days in Hungary..

Otherwise we will just be doing Czech and Hungary on this trip and saving Croatia for warmer weather.

Only 2 days in Florence is a shame. So much to do and beautiful.
