We are independent travellers in our early 60s. I’m organizing our holiday from 3rd to 17th September. We like: to visit picturesque towns and villages; some down-time on a good beach (not too crowded if possible); looking around shops; eating in good restaurants; visit nature reserves, walk in national parks etc. We like to stay in small quiet boutique hotels or b+bs Don't like lots of crowds.
I thought of flying into Split and out of Dubrovnik... We should really appreciate advice on:
How many days to spend in Split? What should we visit from Split? Should we hire a care for the duration of our holiday? How many days in Hvar or another island? Do we need a car to get around? Where should we stay outside of Dubrovnik so we can visit the city but also other places of interest or beauty?
Thank you so much for any advice/suggestions.
