I am so excited to share my recent road trip with you. We had an amazing time exploring each of the city’s we visited along we way. I have put together this itinerary so to best see what we did where and what you can do too. I will be doing blog posts on each place too so these will be hyperlinked at a later date.
Our 9 day road trip took us to each of these places….
Kotor, Montenegro – Two days
Our road trip started with this beautiful city. It had never been a place I had particularly had on my list but in the Easyjet seat sale for £35 it was first stop on our road trip. When I started looking into Kotor I was very much looking forward to getting there. Kotor did not disappoint my expectations it was picture perfect. Admiring the beautiful old town took up most of our time, there was so much to see. Once we had our fill time for a beer by the beach. Kotor has it all. The old town can get pretty packed when cruise liners come into the bay.

Dubrovnik, Croatia – Two days
This walled city was my favourite in Croatia, not because GOT is filmed there. There is lots to see, do , eat I wish we had so more time there to explore. We did manage to cram a lot into our time there however and saw as much of the city as possible. I would have liked to see some of Dubrovnik neighbouring islands but I will have to return for that and I definitely will. It’s the perfect place to grab a table down a side street and drink local wine and sample the sea food. Dubrovnik is not cheap for your wallet though, more tips on this later.

- Eating fresh seafood down cute side streets
- Climbing the city walls

Split, Croatia – Two days
The buzzing city of Split has a lot to offer, Our time her was a little disjointed due to staying on an island in between. Spend time explore the Diocletian’s palace in the old town then stop off for a drink at one of the trendy bars and restaurants. There are many islands to visit of split within easy access of the port so its easy to spend the day island hopping. I wish that I crammed more islands into my stay here
- Exploring the old town
- Eating yummy pizza in Diocletian’s Palace
- Viewing the city from view point
- Trendy bars along the
- Island hopping
Hvar, Croatia – One night
An island within easy access of split being only 60 minutes by ferry (catamaran). It has a pretty port and square full of pretty restaurants and bars. Boat excursions serve the nearby Pakleni Islands, which have secluded beaches and coves to discover.
- Beaches we discovered
- The cute old square and port
- View of the city from the castle
Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina – One night
Known for its medieval Stari Most (old Bridge), I had seen countless pictures of this and couldn’t help but drop whilst in the area. The cobbled streets are lined with shops and bars offering beer, Gelato and souvenirs. The old town was crazy busy in the day, but a night once the day trippers left it soon quietened down and we enjoyed a lovely night in the city drinking local wine and beer with views of the bridge.

Zadar, Croatia – One night
The last stop on our road trip was pretty, I hadn’t done much research as it was our last stop. But Zadar wowed me with its beautiful streets of the old town. We ate amazing pizza in a side street and walked along the sea front. It was a shame we only had one full day in Zadar (due to wild fires slowing our arrival by three hours) there seemed so much more to see/do.
- Climbing the bell tower
- Having a relaxing day at the garden
- Visiting the sea organ as the sea got rough and listening to its tune
