2 weeks in july/aug ?

Hi we have 2 weeks (16 days)- we arrive in venice and planned on renting a car. We would head north and drive around into croatia. Most of the nicer places online would like a 1 week rental. Is there one island that would be best to stay for 1 week. We would like to explore a bit. and do day trips. We are low key adults (50) and aren't into a party scene. We love good food and especially would enjoy being on the waterfront. We wanted to split the trip with a few days in nothern italy and a day or 2 in slovenia. We have been to italy before. We are open to not rening the car but that would leave us without transportation if we just took the ferry from venice. Thanks in advance for the advice. Sharon

How about the island of Krk, which would allow you a short journey to Plitvice?

Hi Sharon...

There are a lot of options open to you. We usually try to use 'public' transport but we found it impractical in this region. I'd recommend a car and just write it off as spent money so you don't worry about it sitting unused for a couple of days.

Heading north from Venice, past Trieste, I'd strongly recommend Piran on the coast in Slovenia.Really pleasant small town with nice restaurants and lovely walks.

If you want something larger and with more life and culture then the capital, Ljubljana is just over an hour away by car.

Heading back round the coast (into Croatia) there are lots of nice places but I'd try Rovinj. Again lots of restaurants,walks and beautiful architecture.

From there maybe head into Pula,amphitheatre etc.Quite a big place though with quite a lot of traffic.

If you want somewhere a little quieter then I'd recomment Mali Losinj.You can either get a ferry from Pula or else drive via the Island of Cres along a really scenic road.

Lots of options.Let me know if you need more.

Yes, please help. We are a family with kids age 12 and 10. We want to do a trip in June/ July next year in Croatia from Venice. The kids are very outdoor kids and enjoy swimming, hiking and adventure. We are open for any suggestions.

My previous post should suit you.

Is there any specific information that I can assist with?
