Need Insight for trip to Croatia in September

Jump to last reply

We are a couple in our golden years (65 and 80), who appreciate seeing the great architecture and enjoy sampling the great foods countries have to offer. So we are planning a trip to Croatia (neither one has ever been), so far, this is what we've planned:

1) Arriving into Dubrovnik - 3 nights
2) By bus to Split - 3 nights
3) So here is where we were thinking of going to Plitvice Lakes. We are not sure however, if this will be a place for us since we are not big on hiking - is there a way to see the park in a shuttle bus? Or at least, walk very little?
4) Rovinj - 2 nights
5) Pula - 2 nights and our planes leave out of the country.

If we determine that Plitvice is not for us, then we have to find another city to visit (which?)
Also, we were thinking of renting a car in Split to make the Plitvice visit possible, so if we don't do that, maybe we're better off going just taking a bus from city to city ??

We are flexible in changing our reservations in any of these places - if it makes more sense. The only non-negotiable is the arrival in Dubrovnik and departure from Pula.

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you very much.
