The ideal time to explore Croatia is definitely the off-season for a number of reasons: the lowest priced at the lowest traffic, the most interesting and picturesque events (first of all the Carnival, but not only!) and a little why to avoid the temptation of the beautiful sea of Croatia and laziness that catches us in summer when we can't resist the lure of the beach , it takes too much, really too much fortitude! Then we explore in the spring or fall and relax in the Sun in summer (and skiing in winter ...).

The new highway connects now all Croatia, but the real Scout should enjoy the pleasure of driving on the Adriatic Highway, the beautiful coastal road that from River reaches the Dalmatia, crossing it all: 1053 km of road and overlooking on a non-transferable, on beaches, coves, deserted stretches of coastline and at the mercy of the elements, through small ports delicious with a stop in any restaurant with terrace

The ideal time to explore Croatia is definitely the off-season for a number of reasons: the lowest priced at the lowest traffic, the most interesting and picturesque events (first of all the Carnival, but not only!) and a little why to avoid the temptation of the beautiful sea of Croatia and laziness that catches us in summer when we can't resist the lure of the beach , it takes too much, really too much fortitude!

Then we explore in the spring or fall and relax in the Sun in summer (and skiing in winter ...). The new highway connects now all Croatia, but the real Scout should enjoy the pleasure of driving on the Adriatic Highway, the beautiful coastal road that from River reaches the Dalmatia, crossing it all: 1053 km of road and overlooking on a non-transferable, on beaches, coves, deserted stretches of coastline and at the mercy of the elements, through small ports delicious with a stop in any restaurant with a terrace overlooking the sea.

Landing in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik you have to spend the early hours of the morning at beautiful walls – before the cruise ships are a constant in front of the old port are beginning to disembark their passengers and town, but above all the walls, crowd of people. From the port you can take the opportunity to visit the Lokrum island with its beautiful peacocks and rocky beaches, or choose a tour of Elafiti.

From Dubrovnik the next stop takes us to Korcula, island green famous for its wine, the sandy beaches of Lumbarda and the historic fortified his capital. From Korcula you can reach the island of Hvar, one of the most "complete" islands of the Croatian Adriatic: Party on one side and stylish, rustic villages, lush, beautiful beaches and restaurants for every taste. From Hvar we move to Split and Diocletian's taking advantage of the new link service with seaplane: a visit to the Palace can take a few hours or the whole day, to end in the catacombs-bazaar ...

We then proceed to Zadar, a perfect mix of ancient and contemporary history and the port of departure for a visit to the National Park Kornati. Going up along the coast you can reach Pula and its beautiful amphitheatre to witness and to a concert or a historical reconstruction, a quick visit to the city – at the Roman Theatre, the market and the beaches of Punta Verudela – and a bet on the Brijuni Islands National Park – Maybe to see a classic theatrical in Ulysses Theatre with setting in an old military fortress.

From Pula to Rovinj is a short step, but the highly diverse landscape: the old town stands on a hilly peninsula and at the top of the Hill stands the Church of Sant'Eufemia: the narrow streets to reach the Church form a labyrinth overlooked by tall, narrow houses and narrow stairs that descend to the sea ... Leaving the sea behind you reach Zagreb, Croatia's capital a mix of culture and art, past and present. There are museums to visit, certainly, but also squares, churches, galleries, the clock tower, the Lake Jarun. From Zagreb the last step is to reach the Plitvice National Park: who sees it for the first time gasps, who set us back ... too!
