Transfers & Arriving – Since my friends live in northern Italy we have always driven to Croatia which is about 10 hour drive from the Milan area. The central highway in Croatia takes you very close to all the critical charter bases. We have always exited the highway for our first Croatian fish grill before arriving at our destination. Our target stop now is at Starigrad about 11km off the highway exit of Maslenica at the restaurant Dalmacija Grill.
Those arriving by plane or ferry might want to look into renting a car for provisioning. It also makes it easy to visiting some historic cities near the charter bases. There’s plenty of taxi service.
We’ve noticed that hotel service has improved dramatically since our first trip in 2002. It’s well worth arriving early to explore some of historic Croatia, particularly, if you’re near one of the UNESCO cities.
