Vienna-Slovenia-Croatia advice needed

Jump to last reply

I have a partial itinerary and am stuck on the middle portion. I would appreciate some advice. We will be flying into Vienna and out of Dubrovnik. We are avid hikers and on past trips, have covered a lot of ground by car. But I am wondering if driving from Ljubijana all the way down to Dubrovnik may be too much driving. Should we spend more time in Slovenia and skip the coast of Croatia?
Day 1-3 Vienna
Day 4 rent a car and drive to Ljubijana
Day 5 Ljubijana
Day 6-7 Lake Bled, Julian Alps

(Plitvice Natl Park, Rovinj, Trogir and should we do Zagreb?)

Day 12 Split to Dubrovnik
Day 13-15 Dubrovnik and Montenegro
Day 16 fly out of Dubrovnik

Question:
1. We would like to see Istria but don't know how many days to allot for this, and should we even try to go to Zagreb. It seems a long way to drive.
2. How long does it take to drive from Zagreb to Split and is it worth it, or should we just take a flight from Zagreb to Dubrovnik? Also, Is the drive worth it from Split to Dubrovnik? or can we see Hvar by driving up from Dubrovnik for a day? I can't decide if we should drive this section and do the ferry to Hvar or Korcula.

I welcome your suggestions.
Linda
