Croatia/Slovenia... Help Me... Please!

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I've been researching a holiday to Croatia, Slovenia and perhaps Montenegro using this site as well as various travel books. I live in Switzerland and will be traveling with my husband and two children next month, and would like to get some feedback on some of our destinations. My kids are "well traveled," and based on experience, I know that they would prefer climbing on rocks over visiting museums, so this itinerary lacks the usual "cultural" spots. When I look at the map, I am impressed at how close all these places appear, but when I use ViaMichelin to plot out our route, I am deceived by the amount of time it takes to get from place to place. I realize that the roads are often twisty and slow, which I am accustomed to, but I would love to hear comments from people who have traveled this route via auto either with or without children. I am concerned that I have crammed too much into a short amount of time, but to eliminate Dubrovnik and Montenegro would be a shame.
