Driving from Rovinj to Zdar

I tried ViaMichelin to go from Rovinj to Zadar but it gives me the fast way and we would like to take the coastal route. Anyone know how many hours it will take from Rovinj to Zadar? The fast way is 4hr 14min. I'm thinking maybe 8 hr?

Maybe you can take the coastal road and then hop on the Autocesta when you have realized that things move pretty slowly along the coastal road.

Put on ViaMichelin, sightseeing rout. From Rovinj to Zadar, costal route, should be less than 7 hr (360 km).

Fast way works Rovinj to Rijeka.Tunnel pass is $4.

Coastal or highway Rijeka to Zadar (realistically) the time is almost the same.Fast way will spoil the view,kill your mpg and you'll burn $20 for toll.

Only Rijeka to Novi Vinodolski the traffic is a bit slower.Monotony of the coastal can be broken by stopping by catching a ferry from Prizna to Pag.On a good day the coastal can be easily done in 5hr42min.

Either way,if you can,avoid driving Jul-Aug on week ends.

we leave Rovinj on May 28, Thursday am, for Zadar. We will spend 3 nights in Rovinj then on to Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik.

We have rooms in Rovinj and Split but not Zadar or Dubrovnik....yet. We leave for Prague from Dubrovnik on June 5.

I visited Zadar in early May 2008 and drove down from Rijeka (on the motorway)which was a good drive. We actually stayed in a sleepy little fishing village just North of Zadar which was one of the most memorable stays of a 6 week trip to Europe. We stayed here: travel-library.com/apartments/europe/croatia… which was very modern and comfortable and ate at a great restaurant a short walk away then drove to Zadar in the morning.
