I am going to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro Sept. 16th-Oct. 12, 2017. I am a solo traveling woman. I am looking for advice on places to stay, renting a car, any experience traveling this time of year in terms of weather, etc. I am looking for accommodations in Dubrovnik in Old Town or relatively close, having a hard time finding what I want (quiet, not a ton of stairs! if possible, balcony, apartment/studio, approx. $100-120 a night). I have the RS guidebook. Has anyone stayed at Karmen Apartments Apt. 4? Tips on renting car in Bled through to Piran, returning then picking up again in Pula (due to returning in same country as rented) and having through Rovinj (although doesn't seem necessary in Rovinj?), Istria, Opatjia, Plitivice to Split and returning there. Then renting one again in Dubrovnik for day trip to Montenegro Bay of Kotor.
Then flying Dubrovnik to Zagreb (1 1/2 days there) and then train to Ljubljana to fly home. Any ideas for place to just lay head near airport or some place where they will have shuttle to get me to LJ airport?
Any comments would be appreciated! Thank you.
