Croatia Itinerary help???

Jump to last reply

Hiya,
I am a 23yr old flying from London to Dubrovnik on 25th May arriving at night. Trying to finalise my week in Croatia as I have a Medsailors tour leaving from Split on the 1st June. Anyone have any advice/recommendations???

25th May - Looking at staying at Old Town hostel in Dubrovnik for 2 nights.
26th May - Explore Dubrovnik old town, Walk the old city walls, find the bars outside the walls overlooking the water, go for a swim if its nice.
27th May - Catch bus from Dubrovnik to Kotor and spend night in Kotor. Any recommendations on where to stay under 50 euros?
28th May - Explore Kotor and catch bus back to Dubrovnik. Looking at staying at Fresh Sheets hostel in the old town for 2 nights.
29th May - Explore Dubrovnik, there was a really cool museum some friends recommended about Dubrovnik's history but can't remember what it's called? possible day trip to island?
30th May - Catch bus to Mostar, explore and stay in Mostar overnight.
31st May - Catch bus to Split, explore Split a little. Any recommendations on places to stay?
1st June - See a little of Split before heading to the port to check in for Medsailors tour at 1pm.

Is there anywhere i can find accurate bus timetables so i can check if the bus travel is possible on those days? Anyone have any must-do's whilst in Dubrovnik?
Thanks

    Should be good!

    Dubrovnik is small, so depending on your interests and how your timing works out (I'm not sure how much time you have in Dubrovnik on the days that include transits), you might want to consider shifting a day to another location.

    Lokrum is an easy few-hour trip from Dubrovnik. I didn't visit Mljet, but read that it's a good day-trip option.

    In Mostar, you might check out the restaurant Babilon. When I was there (some years ago) the food wasn't great, but it was tasty and affordable, and the views are outstanding. It looks like more recent diners have had similar experiences.

    I loved Split; not everyone does. Trogir is a short bus ride away; many people base there instead, and I agree that it is charming. I was glad to spend time in both places.

    For lodging, check booking.com -- make sure you pay attention to the cancellation policies before booking. (For many places, you'll be able to cancel with as little as one day's notice.)

    For must-dos, see any good guidebook. I found the Rough Guide particularly useful - good maps, good info on transportation options, more comprehensive coverage of sites than most guides to the area. And do be sure to get at least one guide book and read the general info section - you'll learn all sorts of things you didn't even know to ask!

    It's a beautiful part of the world - enjoy!
