14 day itinerary help - Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro

Jump to last reply

All, just starting to plan trip and getting very confused. I have no idea where to spend time and where not to. We are 3 active adults and will have 14 full days to tour in early May- mid May of next year (excluding travel time). We like to keep moving at an active pace, i.e. we get bored if we have too many days shopping, etc. We are also okay driving a fair distance each day if need be.

We arrive in Ljublana and are departing from Dubrovnik.

Questions:
1) If we go in early to mid-May will places be closed? Will it be too cold to swim?
2) How many days to spend in Dubrovnik? Am I spending too much time on the islands? Should I go to Istria which I don't think I'm getting to in my current itinerary or is it not possible to do that justice along with everything else?
3) Am I crazy to think about whether it's possible to add in Bosnia for a day trip?
4) Our plan is to rent a car in Slovenia and then drop it off in either Split or Dubrovnik. Any recommendations? I can't tell whether we need a car on the islands or whether to return the car and go with a tour operator each day or not.

Thoughts on my current itinerary would be much appreciated (our arrival and departure days not listed below):
Day1 & 2 Bled and Ljublana
Day 3- Zagreb
Day 4 - Plitvice
Day 5 & 6 - Trogir / Split
Day 7 - Brac
Day 8 & 9 - Hvar
Day 10 & 11 - Korcula
Day 12-13 - Montenegro / Kotur
Day 14 - Dubrovnik

Thanks so much in advance!
