14 days vacation in July fly to zurich then croatia fly home from Istanbul

I was planning to go to Croatia (Dubrovnik, Slit ,Hvar ) and fly from Dubrovnik to Istanbul then fly home to NY.
In order to use my miles we have to fly to Zurich. I didn't plan on staying in Zurich but do like to mountain bike so we may stay for 3 days then fly to Croatia. Not sure how may days to spend in Zurich(looks very expensive) also it cuts into my time in Croatia,(love the water and great biking) not sure how many days to spend in Istanbul I am an arts enthusiast and know its a hot city for art, there are many other sites to see. I want to fly direct from Zurich to Dubrovnik or Split spend 4 or 5 days then have to fly to Istanbul. Seems like a lot of flights and won't get a chance to take in the countries. But I am stuck with the flight NY to Zurich then Istanbul to ny.Any advice on how to break up the 14 days and gt the mos t out of it will be appreciated.Sounds confusing but i can't decide what to do and need to book flight, hotels , car rentals,asap. Thank you.
