    Going on holiday for a month around Italy and Croatia, have a hotel booked in Venice for a couple of nights, but nothing planned after that. Anyone have any advice on accommodation in croatia? Obviously hostels, but how easy is it to wild camp around the country? Am the kind of do as I go along type and don't want to be tied down.

    Any experience, stories or advice on good places etc greatly appreciated

    Can't really help much, just wanted to say that I'm going to be in Croatia this summer as well. Obviously hostels are the cheap way to go, rather than hotels, other than that not too sure really. A few things I think will be highlights of my trip are the Plitvice Lakes National park, the island hopping tour I've booked and really just enjoying the independence - it's the first time I'll be travelling on my own, hope to meet some new people in hostels etc.

    Interested to see what other people say though.

    I cannot say much about Croatia, but I am regularly in Italy to visit my boyfriend's family.

    Food is cheap, especially in non-touristy destinations. 1.20 euros is a good price for a cappuccino, 90 cents to 1 euro is good for a regular coffee (espresso). Venice is quite expensive-make a packed lunch! Couchsurfing is a great way of getting accommodation and and a unique cultural experience for free. Italian train travel is relatively inexpensive, but remember to validate your ticket before every journey! Many travelers are fined for an innocent mistake!

    Ask me if you have any specific questions.
