We are in the planning stages of a month long trip to Europe. We will be in Lubljana on 9/24 and Venice on 9/27. So, including travel time, we have about 3 nights and 2 full days. We were interested in Plitvice and Rovinj. I have read Ricks description of Plitvice and it sounds amazing, but, really only about 1/2 day to see it. It sounds like Rovinj may have more to offer with the smaller towns to visit. We will have a car and the travel distance to Plitvice is about 3 hours, Rovinj is about 2 hours. We have to drop the car back in Slovenia to catch a bus to Venice on 9/27. Comparing Istria with Plitvice I guess, looking for suggestions.. Oh, I should add that as far as "coastal towns" go, we will be spending time in Cinque Terra and Venice, so, wondering if those are similar to Rovinj?
