So here is the thing about Croatia. Italy-Rome has lots of ruins, but you have to pay to see them with all the masses. Croatia is filled with old Rome and the Croatians are still living in and around them. Almost everyone speaks some English
I keep my catamaran
in Split. All good suggestions. Mine would be to definitely charter out of Trogir. it is 15min. drive from the airport
There are lots of good charter companies there. Split has the Diocletian Palace, also very nice, Plus many good Islands to sail too around Trogir and down past Split. Trogir is a mini Dubrovnik, But Dubrovnik is a must see. If you have the time rent a car,(about 21/2hr drive) and do an overnite in Dubrovnik after the charter. The wind
probably will not cooperate for sailing in both directions. Its an easy drive and you'll get to see a beautiful country. Primosten, north of Trogir is also a nice sail. If you can, go in May or September. The wind is better,and Europe
isn't on vacation
yet. Feel free to PM me any other questions. Just go!!!
