    Hi -

    My family and I are planning a trip to Croatia and Slovenia in August. We have not bought tickets yet but plan on flying into Ljubijana on August 12 and out of Zagreb on August 23. This is of course flexible, these connections just seem to be the most efficient at the moment.

    We have four kids under the age of 12 and have been traveling abroad with them about once a year since they were born. They have been all over and are generally ok with doing whatever (and their favorite part is always the plane ride).

    I have done several rushed itinerary type trips and would like help balancing between not being rushed and making good use of time. I think we'd be most interested in scenario and small towns.

    I have mapped out a little itinerary but hoping to get some boots-on-the-ground feedback of maybe some smaller out of the way places to stay near the towns I mentioned. Any and all other advice is much appreciated!

    The tentative plan is as follows:

    Fly in to Ljubljana
    then to Trieste
    then make way down to Zadar area
    then up through Plitice Lakes
    then to Zagreb

    I figured this would be a good swatch for 12-13 days-ish but not really sure practically. Thanks again for your help!

    I would strongly recommend seeing Lake Bled, but it is in the wrong direction you are headed. However,the Postjona Cave is on your way to Trieste, a must see.

    In Slovenia:
    1.) Postojna Cave tour, whole family
    2.) Predjama Castle, whole family
    3.) Lake Bled, adults for vista and stroll. About an hour or less from Ljubljana.

    In Trieste:
    1.) Espresso, hot chocolate, other food delights at "Caffe" at Via Vincenzo Bellini 51, or other nearby trattoria on the Canal Grande di Trieste, adjacent the Ponte Rosso bridge for Via Roma on which there is a famous stature of James Joyce (who lived in Trieste), whole family for food, Joyce for some adults. If using public parking, be cautious about valuables left in vehicle.
