Honeymoon Itinerary - Munich, Venice, Slovenia & Croatia

Jump to last reply

My fiance and are are trying to plan our honeymoon trip for late September / early October this year. Our main requirements are that we can only leave around September 25th and need to go to a friend's wedding in Bolzano, Italy the weekend of October 4th. We've heard great things about Slovenia and Crotia, and of course, Venice, so we're thinking of covering them all in an extended honeymoon (probably 3-4 weeks long). We want a mix of adventure and relaxation on the trip, and put a high value on natural beauty (including hiking) and delicious food. I should note we plan to travel to much of southern Italy in 2015, which is why we aren't planning to do all of Italy on our honeymoon this time.

Our rough schedule is something like this:
9/25-9/27 - Munich for Oktoberfest
9/28-10/2 - Make our way down to Bolzano (~3 hour drive if we use a rental car)
10/3-10/5 - Bolzano, Italy for a friend's wedding
10/6-10/10 - Make our way down to Venice, Italy
10/10+ Take a ferry to Slovenia, then to Croatia

As you can see, this is very rough, but I'd love to get feedback on a few things:
1) What cities/towns do you recommend to visit as we go from Munich to Bolzano?
2) What Italian cities/towns do your recommend to visit as we go from Bolzano to Venice?
3) First off, are Slovenia and Croatia good to visit in September/October?
4) What Slovenian and Crotian cities are best to visit, especially by ferry since I hear rental cars may cause issues crossing borders, etc?

Thanks in advance for any input. Our plan is very preliminary right now, so if you think we're totally missing the boat in how we're thinking about our honeymoon, please let us know!
