Me and my girlfriend plan to visit Croatia this automn. We made a draft of an itinerary that I would like to hear some criticism about.
The hard facts is that we're arriving in Split in the afternoon on Sat, and leaving from Zagreb in the morning, Mon, 16 days later. We're not scared of driving, but we obviously want to have time to enjoy ourselves and what we are visiting.
Here's what we have so far :
DATE --- What we plan to see for most of the day --- Where we plan to sleep.
Sat --- Airplane & Split --- Split
Sun --- Split --- Split
Mon --- Brac --- Brac (*take a ferry for Brac in the morning)
Tue --- Brac --- Brac
Wed --- anything on the road from Split to Dubrovnic -- Dubrovnic (*take a ferry from Brac to Split in the morning, then rent a car from this point till the end of the trip).
Thu --- Dubrovnic -- Dubrovnic
Fri --- Kotor --- Dubrovnic
Sat -- Mostar --- Mostar
Sun -- Sibenik & Zadar --- Zadar
Mon -- Plitvice parks -- Plitvice
Tue -- Anything between Plitvice and Istria Region. --- Somewhere in Istria
Wed -- Istria Region --- Istria
Thu -- Istria Region --- Istria
Fri -- Anything between Istria Region and Zagreb --- Zagreb
Sat -- Zagreb & nearby --- Zagreb
Sun --- Zagreb & nearby --- Zabreb
Mon --- Airplane --- Home :(
What we most want to see is Dubrovnic, Kotor and Plitvice Parks.
I know we could slow down the pace by either crossing out Brac or the Istria region but both seems lovely and that would be a hard choice :(
Mostar and Zadar are not "absolutely must do" for us, but Mostar seemed logical since we were down in dubrovnic and needed to go back north, and doing the Split - Dubrovnic road twice seemed redundant.
Thanks for advices !
