Going from Dubrovnik to Venice - need help with the Croatian itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello. My wife and I are heading to Croatia at the end of June and while I have done a fair amount of research online about locations, I am still at a loss about planning the details of our trip so I am hoping folks here can provide some guidance.

We are arriving in Dubrovnik just after 12 noon on June 25th. 13 days later, on July 8th we are flying home from Venice, so I am eventually going to have to get over to Italy to fly home. I have been to Venice before but my wife has not, so I think we will spend three days there.

From what I understand, there are three sea crossings from Croatia to Italy: Dubrovnic to Bari, Split to Ancona and Rovinj to Venice. I am assuming we will do one of those, but I'm not sure we will have time to make our way all the way up to Rovinj.

My wife and I are different travelers. I am more fast paced who likes to see the sights and move on to the next place. My wife likes a little slower pace. She will definitely want to spend some time on the beach on this trip (something that I am not into very much), so we'll have to make some compromises on this trip. We both enjoy good food and a bit of nightlife as well.

I know we are hitting Dubrovnic at peak time and there will be cruise ships hittng the city every day we are there. If I have to spend a couple extra days in Dubrovnic and see the sites in the morning and evenings, outside of the time the ships are docked, I am fine with that. Perhaps a day trip or two out of Dubrovnik would be good.

A friend of my wife's told her that Hvar is "a must" so our itinerary is going to have to involve visiting there, but I have no idea where we should stay or how long we should stay there.

I usually don't rent cars when I am overseas so I would prefer to plan a trip that involves buses, trains and ferries. If renting a car will simply save a massive amount of time and not add too much hassle, I would consider doing it.

If anyone has any sample itineraries or other suggestions for me, I will take any and all advice.

Thanks!
