Help with proposed Slovenia/Istria itinerary

Jump to last reply

Looking for some opinions on our proposed itinerary for Slovenia and Istria. We will be driving, as it seems almost necessary for the area and should provide the most flexibility.

Here goes:

- Drive to Bled from LJU airport (evening arrival in Bled) – Stay 2 nights – (Lake, Julian Alps, Vintgar Gorge, Bohinj?)
- Drive Vršič Pass on the way to Kobiard Continue to Kobarid – Stay 2 nights - (Soca Valley, WW1 Museum, Historical walk)
-Drive to Piran, and see Predjama Castle and Skocjan Caves on the way. Evening arrival Piran – Stay 2 nights - (Walk the town, swimming, people watching)
-Drive to Rovinj – Stay 3 Days- (Island Ferries, Swimming, people watching, daytrips to hill towns??)
- Drive to Ljubljana – Stay 3 Days (Funicular to Castle, River Stroll, National Gallery)

Does it make the most sense to day trip to Motovun, Grožnjan and Pula from Rovinj? Is Rovinj the best place to be in the evenings? Or, should we stay one day and night in Rovinj and spend the other nights the other towns, perhaps sleeping in Motovun and checking out the countryside a bit? Also, Is there anything else we may be missing? Our interests are Food, Wine, Light to Medium Hiking, photography, relaxation and people watching.) Any advice or opinions are welcome.

Thanks,

Rich
