Itinerary Italy and Croatia

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for some guidance on my itinerary. I have eleven nights, starting toward the end of April. I'm realizing it's probably not going to be realistic to do all of the things I want to do. I think I might still be trying to cram too much in, so I'd like some opinions. We are flying into and out of Venice. Tickets are already booked, so no room to add more nights.

Here is one option I'm thinking:

Day 1: into Venice, stay in Venice
Day 2-3: Ferry to Rovinj. Rent car, explore Rovinj, Istria, Pula.
Day 4: Ferry back to Venice, stay in Venice
Day 5: Rent car and drive to Cinque Terre. Stay in Cinque Terre.
Day 6: Cinque Terre
Day 7: Drive from Cinque Terre to Rome, stopping in either Pisa or Siena along the way. Stay in Rome
Day 8: Rome
Day 9: Pompei, Amalfi Coast
Day 10: Amalfi coast
Day 11: Back to Rome, stay in Rome
Day 12: fly Rome to Venice, Venice to London for flight home

Am I still trying to do too much? I've been to Rome before (and Florence, so no need to stop there). So I've done the Vatican, Colosseum, Roman Forum.

Another option is to skip the trip to Cinque Terre, spend a couple more days in Croatia, perhaps driving down to Split, and catch a flight from there to Rome.

Or I could skip Croatia (I really want to see Croatia though), and spend the whole time in Italy, taking a little more time working my way from Venice to Rome, perhaps overnight in Siena, maybe another day on the Amalfi Coast.

Any thoughts?
