We will be coming by ferry from Venice and can stay in Croatia for about 6-7 days.

We are planning on taking the ferry from Venice to Rovinj, staying a few days in Rovinj, and then either doing a day trip to Plitvice Lakes or spending one night there. We would like to also see Opatjia for a day or 2. Then go through Slovenia into Hungary where we will stay for 4 days . Budapest is all taken care of since I have a cousin there. WE are planning on flying out of Budapest back to Los Angeles.

You can find timetables for buses Rovinj-Opatija at the following website www.akz.hr (use page translation).

It takes c. 2 -2.5 hrs. For more choice you could bus into Pula and pick up a bus to Opatija there. Go to www.pulainfo.hr
