1Zagreb - Dubrovnik - Zagreb by bus, takes about 10-12 hours one way, you can also take night bus to save time.
Zagreb - Ljubljana - Bled (Lesce station) - Bled(Jezero station) - Nova Gorica by train
The 2 train stations in Bled are a long walk from the town, and I don`t remember if there is a bus, when I was there I hitchhiked, it`s very easy and safe in Slovenia, but also not impossible to walk, just a bit far.
Nova Gorica, cross the border on foot to Gorizia in Italy, it`a quite a long walk 30-40 minutes, but it`s within a town. It`s like Nova Gorica is the Slovenian side of the town, Gorizia the Italian side and the border is in the middle! :) There`s no border control anymore of course.
Gorizia - Venezia - Milano - Firenze - Pisa - Napoli - Roma by train

4Yep. I know.I was in Italy last year.With Eurail pass, still need to pay 10euro for each fast train seat reservation :/
I remebered the train departure and platform is a little confusing for me that I got no idea I took a regional train instead of the fast train connection I have paid. this time not gonna happen again!

5Yes, don`t buy the rail pass this time!
Check the ticket prices on the website of the Italian Railways and you realise it`s cheaper to buy tickets than the rail pass!
