My husband and I are planning a 2 ½ week trip to Croatia from June 19 through July 7. I have done lots of research and I just need some help with fine tuning my itinerary to get the most out of this trip. We are looking for a good mixture of beach time, good dining and minimal exploring; more emphasis on the first two things. So far here is what I have as my preliminary itinerary from reading this forum and all the helpful links I have come across:
6/20 - Arrive in Split – rent an apartment in Split for 5 days and do day trips to Trogir, Korculam and Vis (do we need a car to make the best out of these day trips?)
6/25 – Leave Split to Brac Island; stay for 3 days
6/28 – Leave Brac to Hvar Islands; stay for 4 days (would the ferry that runs from Split-Boc-Jelsa allow for this?)
Does the above sound doable? What would you subtract/add? Any modifications on time spent at each destination i.e. should we spend less days at a certain island and go visit a different place? Also, while in Brac and Hvar islands, would you recommend renting an apartment or would we be best suited in a hotel?
Thank you in advance for your help.
