We are a couple in our early 60's traveling with our 24 year old daughter.
We plan to visit Greece for 7 days prior to traveling to Croatia from May 11 to May 18, 2019.
We enjoy visiting the highlights of an area, walking cities, towns, and villages. We like to explore scenic areas, low impact hiking and biking. We do not need beach time, multiple museum visits, or a bar/partying environment. We enjoy viewing and experiencing the uniqueness of an area, its people, food, and culture.
Our tentative itinerary is the following (an additional day may be added) but no transportation is booked yet:
5/11 Fly from Athens to Dubrovnik Overnight: Dubrovnik
Aegean Airlines arrives 3:25pm
or Croatia Airlines arrives 8:15pm
5/12 Explore Dubrovnik Overnight: Dubrovnik
5/13 Dubrovnik; Krilo catamaran to Korcula (4:30pm-6:20pm) Overnight: Korcula
5/14 Explore Korcula Overnight: Korcula
5/15 Korcula; Krilo catamaran to Split (6:20pm-8:45pm) Overnight: Split
5/16 Explore Split Overnight: Split
5/17 Day trip to Hvar Overnight: Split
5/18 Fly back to San Francisco
- Any recommendations on modifying the itinerary? other side trips? Is it possible to fit in an overnight stay to see Plitvice Lakes by eliminating Hvar. Did not plan to rent a car, but would do so if add Plitvice Lakes visit.
Limited boat service impacts the time of departure/arrival between locations.
Is it correct that the only available boat service on these May dates for travel between Dubrovnik, Korcula, and Split is the Krilo catamarans. What is the possibility that they
will be cancelled? How do we continue our travels if there is a cancellation? bus?
- I usually like to avoid 1 night stays when possible. However, would it be better to have one night stays at Korcula and Hvar as an alternative plan?
- When should airfare from Athens to Dubrovnik be purchased?
- When should Krilo tickets be purchased?
Thank you for your comments,suggestions, and recommendations.
