Hi there,

My husband and I want to travel to Croatia after Italy for some beach and relaxation time, and we need some suggestions on where to go as we have limited time. We have 1 week, and we will be going there from Milan. All we really want is a solid week of being beach bums on some gorgeous beaches and places where we can get good food and drinks. We don't care about any nightlife as coming off of Italy, we want some rest and relaxation, eat, drink, and soak up the rays.

Can anyone suggest:
- Best place to make a home base with a nice beach, that is low key--but we can make day trips to other things if we want too
- Best way to get there from Milan-- I am assuming we'll end up going through Venice but any help you can offer would be great!

Thank you!!

Lissy

From Venice theres a train to Trieste. From here I took a bus that runs down along the Slovenian Coast into Pula. this is a nice part of the Adriatic. Stop at Pirana (30 min from Koper on the coast) on your way. I have a pic in my gallery .
