Some time ago I’d looked at a trip taking in Croatia, but a bit more protracted taking in:
But weather in these regions can be cold if travelling in our usual time of Sept-March.
The ferry prices were not extortionate, the most expensive being the one from Sardinia to Sicily.
I’d love to do the Islands, spending time on each one.
I had a quick look at some maps
yesterday ( I still owe you for the Spanish Portuguese atlas) and I’m thinking Cherbourg then Belgium/Holland I want to cross into Germany north of Koblenz head south towards stuttgart and Munich and cross into Austria around Salzburg into Slovenia and then Croatia.
I might look at Ferry options to get across to Italy and drive across then Italy maybe via Sardinia to Spain. I don’t want to be in Italy for too long as refilling gas low is meant to be difficult and their driving scares me.
well, well, well.
Italian legislation requires the gas tank to be marked on the vehicle registration document.
This applies to Italian vehicles, I don't think there are problems with foreign ones.
It is true that refueling points are seldom available in the south, gas cars are mainly circulating in the north where it is not difficult to find LPG distributors.
Attention, we also use methane but it is another gas.
As for driving style, sorry but it's you who don't know how to drive.
At least we don't have cat's eyes and nobody mounts mirrorguards. Smile and re-smile.
I haven't been to Croatia for decades, geez, there were still pictures of Tito in the shops even though he was already dead.
But I read and inform myself, one day or another I'll be back.
- Path. To get there you will almost certainly have to go through Slovenia and buy their motorway vignette.
There is the possibility of avoiding their highways but it is not so immediate.
If anyone is interested I can retrieve information on how to do it.
- Wild camp. Strictly prohibited. Some possibility of overnight stay in small restaurants and taverns.
Or the campsites
. Once cheap and of medium level, they are now often tourist villages with all the services and consequently also the prices.
Pay attention to the opening times.
- Schengen. Croatia was long overdue.
From the North Cape to Gibraltar only Romania and Bulgaria remain. Assuming you like their sea.
