8 thoughts on “The Perfect Croatia Itinerary: How To Spend 3 Weeks In Croatia”

  1. Hi! Thank you so much for this post! It was so helpful and fun to read. If I will be traveling solo and do not have a car, will this whole itinerary still be possible for me to do by using public transportation?

    1. Hi Ida, so happy to hear that :) Yes, absolutely, we did this itinerary entirely with public transportation. Croatia has a great public bus system, and the ferries in between the islands are also a great option. Keep in mind the ferries may not run in low season and have more limited schedules in the shoulder seasons. Have an amazing time :)

  2. Hi there, my husband and I are in the process of planning a roadtrip down the coast of Croatia in mid August of this year. Our plan is to fly in to Pula, rent a car and then spend the next 7 days exploring making our way to Dubrovnik where we will fly out of. We were thinking of renting the car then driving to Rovinj to spend our first night, but we are looking for a recommendation for a place to visit between Rovinj and Split.

    Any guidance is greatly appreciated! We want to enjoy the beaches, we also love wine and food and exploring new places. Were in our thirties and have traveled all over, but could use some help here :)

    Our itinerary right now looks something like this-
    Night 1- Rovinj
    Night 2- ??
    Night 3- Split
    Night 4-Hvar
    Night 5-Hvar
    Night 6-Dubrovnik
    Night 7-Dubrovnik

    1. Hi Alexis, how exciting, Croatia is such a beautiful country! There are a few options for a place to stop on the way between Rovinj and Split, for nature, Plitvice Lakes National Park is stunning, but will also probably be pretty busy during August, or for more coastal, you could try Zadar. The only thing I would say is that if you can, add a few days to your trip so you have a little more time to explore each place. Have an amazing trip and let us know if you have any other questions :)

  3. Most insightful posting about Croatia and where to check out. We were thinking about month+ there and don’t like to move too fast as we work and school while traveling, so having 5ish locations to stay 1-2 weeks each sounds perfect. THANK YOU for adding information about the ferry services- the island idea sounded intimidating but after looking into it, it appears to be really easy!

    Question if you still check this post: We want to go when we can swim but I typically hate high season. Curious if early June or late August would be better?

    1. Hi Jess, Croatia is beautiful you will love it! The ferry services are great, but just check the timetables for when you are wanting to go as the schedule becomes more limited in the shoulder seasons. About the swimming, I would guess that it is warmer in the post-summer months than beforehand. But having said that, August is one of the busiest months, so September would most likely be better for less tourists, although it will still be busy. And on our last trip to Croatia we were in Dubrovnik in mid-June and actually thought it was a lot less busy then July and swimming was great!

  4. Thank you so much for this, I am going to do it! I’ve already booked my places in those places as I did this past year for Portugal as I love and I got all free cancellations. It works out so well. I was a little concerned on how to get from one place to another as I will not have a car so I especially appreciate your info. Thank you, I may be back in touch! Sandy

    1. Hi Sandy, so happy you found our blog useful :) Croatia is such an amazing country, we are actually back in Croatia again now! It’s pretty easy to get around without a car, buses are great here. Hope you have an amazing trip and definitely let us know if you have any other questions :)
