HELP: Italy, Croatia Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi. My fiance and I are travelling to Italy and Croatia in 5 weeks. We have spontaneously decided to have a symbolic wedding on this trip..... no formalities or paperwork, just the 2 of us exchanging our vows in a special place. Where? We haven't decided 100%, but think Venice would be it. We are both very easy going and spontaneous and had thought that we would know the place when we see it, but now I am getting anxious about that too!!! So, I will spend the next day or two planning our ceremony in Venice. However, I still could use suggestions. I also very much need help with our itinerary.

We are both 50 and young for our age. We love the outdoors, hiking, dining, good food and experiencing different cultures. We like staying at B&B's and mingling with locals. We have a modest budget ie we try not to go over $200 per night for room.

So far, the only thing we have confirmed is our flights and our ferry from Dubrovnik to Bari.

Here's what we've got so far:
May 13th - arrive at 7:30pm and take boat to Venice
May 14th - Venice
May 15th - Venice...Ceremony
May 16th - rent car and drive to Rovinj
May 17th - Rovinj
May 18th - Drive to Plitvice Lakes
May 19th - hike Plitvice Lakes
May 20th - Drive to Dubrovnick (stop at Split)
May 21st - Dubrovnik til we catch the ferry at 10pm
May 22nd - Drive from Bari to Amalfi
May 23rd - Amalfi
May 24th - Amalfi
May 25th - Amalfi
May 27th - Naples - Pompei
May 28th Fly out of Naples at 6:30am

Considering the scary stories that I've read about driving in the Amalfi coast, as well as the cost and difficulty in parking, we are considering dropping the car off in Salerno on the way from Bari. If we do that we will have to rely on bus and ferries for the remiander of the trip. We will rent an apartment in Amalfi and do day trips to Salerno, Positano and Ravello. Then go to Naples day before flying out of Naples.

Please help guide me with the itinerary - as you can see there are a lot of holes in the plan and not much time to plan on my own - lots that I have not even began to think about!!

Thank you, thank you in advance,

Shay
