I'm considering the following itinerary and would love some feedback and tips:
Day 1 (Friday August 2nd): Fly into Dubrovnik, hire a driver to drive straight to Perast, Montenegro. Stay in Perast
Day 2: Kotor/Perast, stay Perast
Day 3: stay Perast and tour Montenegro
Day 4: drive/bus to Dubrovnik, stay Dubrovnik
Day 5: Dubrovnik
Day 6: tour to Mostar, stay Dubrovnik
Day 7: Dubrovnik
Day 8: fly out of Dubrovnik at 2pm
Things we're considering:
- Ideally we'd love to stay a night in Mostar to get a better feel of the place than a few hours with a tour bus but don't want to drive and it seems difficult to get public transport there and a private driver would be expensive.
- If we were staying the night in Mostar, probably better to go directly there from Kotor because otherwise too much back and forth (Dubrovnik - Kotor - Dubrovnik - Mostar - Dubrovnik).
- Trying to find a nice place in Dubrovnik under $160 a night is HARD! I know we've left it really late but any recommendations greatly received!
- We're travelling with our 8 year old son. He's a great traveler and very flexible but any tips on travelling with kids appreciated.
Thanks so much!
