Activity code: CRFD01
Duration: 15 Days
Why not rediscover Croatia's past with a beautiful drive along the length of its scenic coastline from south to north, then round of your holiday with a romantic mini-break in Venice ?
Travelling in Croatia is an absolute joy whether you choose to island-hop, drive the incredible coast road or use the modern highways (a few kms inland) to get quickly between main locations. Starting with a couple of days in the beautiful Dubrovnik your journey really begins with a drive up the stunning Dalmatian coastline, taking in the incredible walls at Ston, the Peljesac Peninsula and maybe one of the stunning Adriatic islands, such as Hvar. The mid-point of the holiday is the city of Split but you may choose to stay in smaller Trogir across the bay; from here we recommend a visit to the Krka National Park and a stop in one of our favourite places - Zadar. From Zadar you can choose to head inland if you wish to visit the incredible Plitvice Lakes National Park or simply stay on the wonderfully scenic coastal road all the way to Istria.
Once in Istria you can spend a few days exploring its unique historic locations, Pula, Rovinj, Porec, etc. and its fantastic countryside, including, perhaps, a night in our recommended hilltop town - Motovun. At this point your could conclude your holiday and fly home from Pula but, if your schedule allows, we are also able to book you on the (passenger-only) ferry to Venice with one or two nights in a small hotel in the centre of the city, just a short walk from St. Marks Square. There are many flights from Venice's Marco Polo Airport so we can match up a return flight with your arrival into Dubrovnik.
Flights available to book with us through a range of airlines, from various UK airports to Croatia. If we book your flights this means that your holiday will also be fully ATOL protected.
