It's a long trip and Itinerary looks good. You are flying into Venice, why not fly out from Croatia to go home and save time going back to Venice. Do an open Jaw flight.

Thanks for the answer

Why fly to and from venice :

1) flights to venice are direct, not in Croatia.
2) less expensive
3) We end in The Dolomites, going back to Croatia would mean a lot of backtracking.
4) flights are already booked.

Since I was a little short with you, I will explain.

Those who respond here are not paid. We do it because we enjoy travel, and believe that we can help others.

When you repeatedly post, those of us who respond simply will not help you. Why? Because the answers to the new question are often found in other streams. You might have noticed that your more recent posts get no answers from posters with many responses. That's why.
