If I spend those three nights in Zadar and travel by bus, would there be enough time to see something of Trogir and still make it to Split for the ferry? (Departure appears to be at 18:30.) If I do that, is there somewhere in the bus terminal to leave a suitcase instead of dragging luggage around all day?
Does it make more sense to do 2 nights in Zadar and one in Trogir? I'd prefer not to pick up and move every day or two but this may be a more reasonable way to get to where I want to end up.

1To me it makes more sense to spend 2 nights in Zadar, visit Sibenik on your way to Trogir, spend a night in Trogir and the next day see Diocletian's palace in Split.
It's not that there is so much to see in Trogir but there are other places worth seeing.
I can't recall if the bus station has left luggage as I covered this are with a rental car.

2When I have not been able to find a garderoba (left luggage), I have asked staff at a tourist office to keep my bag for a short time. But I agree with Ruth that changing locations makes sense.
Note you may want to rent a vehicle on Vis. I was there at that time of year and did not find the bus useful for exploring the island.

4The most fun I've ever had on a scooter was on Vis. Make sure you secure your rental before the tourist office closes for the long afternoon break. (There was a rental office as well as a tourist office, but probably both close for the afternoon.) The ring road that loops the island offers fantastic views, especially descending into Komiza. The beach at Vis (walk to the edge of town) is not the best, but not terrible. At the tourist office they can describe how to get to the really impressive beaches like Stiniva. The only negative was that a lot of trash washes into the coves over the winter--plastic bottles, nothing gross. They have beach cleanings in early summer, but this had not occurred when I visited in late May. Still, one of the most perfect beach days ever, as you hike in and have complete privacy.
The Vis tourist office used to have a great website with a map of the island--they seemed to have tried to revamp it and it is now not in English and buggy, but keep checking:

What you say about the tourist office closing reminds me of another question. It looks like the day I plan to arrive on Vis is the Corpus Christi holiday. Do any of you know what to expect -- will any stores be open? Taxis running? I hope at least the ferry and bus will run on schedule but do not know how bit a holiday this is considered.

6I have left bags at tourist information offices, travel agencies, hotels, and bus station lockers. There always seems to be some place where it can be arranged especially if you are willing to make a small payment. Just be sure to check opening and closing times since lots of places close at lunchtime.
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
