We're thinking of visiting Dubrovnik for approximately 1 week in late June, staying at the Dubrovnik Palace, and then perhaps visiting Korcula or other islands while in Dubrovnik. For our second week we'd like to travel somewhere nearby in Croatia or nearby (Montenegro?) that is relaxing/peaceful, with nice scenery & good food.
Do you have any suggestions of where we should start to look? We were originally thinking of spending the second week in Istria but have been advised that the travel time between the 2 destinations is about 8 hours driving and that's something we don't want to do.
Thanks in advance!
