We're planning a trip starting in Rome, going by train to Florence and Venice. We'd like to visit Istria - family roots are there - and then go on to Split & Dubrovnik. and take the ferry from Split across to Pescara and the train from Pescara to Rome.
The questions we have are
1. What's the best way to get from Venice to Istria? Ferry and then rent a car in Istria?
2. If we rent a car, can we rent in say Pula and drop off in Split w/o a huge fee?
3. Is taking the ferry from Split to Pescara and then the train to Rome fiesable?
