My husband and I are planning a 3 week plus trip in October to Italy, Croatia and Slovenia. We plan to spend the first week in Italy and then proceed to Croatia. The itinerary we've planned is heavier on cities than on coastal towns. We tend to prefer historical or cultural sites and museums more than outdoor recreation or beaches. But we wanted to see both aspects of Croatia.
At the same time, we don't want to spend so little time in a place that it's just a whirlwind where we see and experience very little. We're wondering if we're trying to do too much and spending too little time in each non-city location.
Our plan is as follows:
3 days/4 nights in Rome; 3 nights in Venice; 1 night in Trieste
Trieste to Rovinj. One day and night in Rovinj. Pick up car in Rovinj.
Drive to Plitvice National Park. One day and night at the park.
Drive to Zadar. One day and night in Zadar.
Drive to Mostar. One day and night in Mostar.
Drive to Split. One day and night in Split. Return car.
Train or bus to Zagreb. 3 days and nights in Zagreb.
Train to Ljubljana. 3 days and nights in Ljubljana, perhaps with a day trip to Bled.
Train to Munich from which we'll return home.
I'd welcome thoughts and suggestions about this plan.
Thanks.Edited: 25 June 2014, 14:17
