My wife and I, and 2 friends, are planning a 14 day road trip from Prague (after a self guided cycling tour) down to Slovenia into Croatia (where we think we will fly out of Zagreb back to Australia). This is our first time in Europe so we need all the help we can get! We will arrive late July.
I have listed below the places we really want to visit but would love suggestions on where to go in between and what to skip (we will be renting a car in Prague and am aware that we might have to drop it off in Zagreb which will cost extra)
- Prague to Lake Bled (3-4 nights)
- Lake Bled (2 nights)
- Julian Alps (1 night)
- Bovec (rafting)
- Ljubljana (2 nights)
- Rovinj or Pula (1 night)
- Plitvice lakes (1 night)
Any thoughts on where to stop between Prague and Lake Bled? We like the idea of smaller historic towns, good food and beer/wine!
We would like to venture further down into Croatia but I'm not sure we have the time.
Any suggestions on where to stay/eat/car rental etc will be much appreciated.
