Route from Kobarid, Slovenia to Rovinj, Istria

We'll be driving from Kobarid to Rovinj (perhaps stopping at hill towns). What is the best route to drive from Slovenia into Croatia? Can we drive on the highway through Italy, or do we need to stay in Slovenia and Croatia? The rental car company knows we will be driving to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia, but we didn't ask about Italy.
Thanks for any suggestions or experience.

We drove from Kobarid into Italy last year, and there is no border post, although the police in a car wanted to see our passports, so I don't expect that you will have a problem. But always check with the rental company for them to give you any warnings.

No need to drive into Italy at all, just follow the main road through the Soca Valley south to Nova Gorica and then take H4, followed by A1 to Koper and then cross the border into Croatia.
