Where to stay
The best places to stay in Croatia are usually found by booking a tour. For example, a 7-night vacation tour makes the reservations for the places to stay – somewhere in historic Dubrovnik. Then you rent a car to drive to destinations of interest to you. Dubrovnik is close for you to drive to Trogir, Split, Zadar, and Plitvice Lakes National Park. With these tours, there is not the hassle of finding where to stay, but you also get to explore on your own. If you love historical sites you might think of planning your trip in this way.
You should also take a tour of all the important restaurants in the area. Croatian cuisine is diverse and each region of Croatia has its own culinary and distinct tradition. Some of these dishes are dated back to ancient times. So, if you are a food lover – another reason to go to Croatian during the summer.
