Hi My wife and I are planning a trip to Croatia, our very first and have found flights for £310 return from UK to Split arriving late Saturday night for a week at the end of May.
We wanted to get a taste of Croatia in our week, but my wife will be around 5 months pregnant by the time we fly so are wanting a relaxing time as well, so heres our thoughts...
Arrive late Saturday night at airport and get bus into Split centre and stay near harbour
Next morning catch early ferry over to HVAR and stay for 4 days in HVAR itself at a nice hotel with pool to relax
Thursday afternoon/evening get ferry from HVAR back to Split and check into hotel and have evening meal in centre of Split
Next day take tour of Plitvice (appreciate this is a long day but looks too good to miss)
The next day we fly home around 8pm so have all day to wonder around Split old town before heading to the airport, we will leave bags at hotel in split while wondering around town.
The other option would be to Do the split part of the leg first then go to Hvar for the end of the trip.
So what are your thoughts?
Any hotel recommendations in old part of Split or Hvar island?
Any tour companies to Plitvice (I guess some people will say don't bother going!? with the amount of time we have etc)
Ive seen a nice bar called Hula Hula in Hvar but cant find the location! my wife im sure would love to watch the sun go down here - is this walkable from the town itself?
We wont hire a car as ive only ever driven once outside of the UK and don't wish to add any stress.
Any help appreciated.
