Hi all- Any comments on the overnight crossing from Dubrovnick to Bari? Look like Jadrolinigia may be the only company providing service? Do you recommend this for a couple in there 50's first timers to this part of the world. Or should we fly DBV to FCO and fly or train to Bari? How are the inside cabins? Can you get a little sleep?
All comments are greatly appreciated.

Hi, me and my family 5 days in Cavtat in august.
We're looking for good informations about restaurant (good food not expencive), market, place to visit, nice beachs, close to this town or in Dubrovnik.
Anyway could be nice to meet some travellers that will be there from 24 to 29 of august.
We have four days to get from Dubrovnik to Istanbul.We can't afford to fly,so we need to take buses or trains. Any suggestions what would be the best way to go?
We are thinking about a small ship trip with Overseas Adventure Travel along the Dalmatian Coast. When is the best time to do this in the April or May time frame. We want to avoid the strong Boreas winds and rough seas, but of course want reasonably warm temperatures for our shore visits (dubrovnik, Split etc.)
We have four- five days in DUbrovnik area beginning of October. Interested in renting bikes either on islands or in area. Could also fly to split to do same for two days. Any suggestions? We are moderate bikers, not Tour de France.
We want to flight to Dubrovnik this summer, but we'd like to take some cruise in that area.
Does anybody if I can get some options once there? The available options in the UK are very reduced, they leave us in a different city and few time in Dubrovnik.
I have heard that Lopud is a 'must see' beautiful island to visit whilst staying in Dubrovnik. Can someone please tell me how to get there? Thank you so much in advance.
I have a dilemma! I am going to be traveling through southern Croatia for the last 5 days of my backpacking trip to Europe here in June. I did visit Split and Lastovo island last summer and absolutely loved it. I have heard great things about Dubrovnik but did not make it last year. This year I am obviously going to only have enough time to visit Split and it's neighbouring islands or Dubrovnik and it's neighbouring islands. I'm just looking to hear some opinions on which they like better. Thanks!
Is this a great place to visit while in Dubrovik?
I read that a 50 minute chug on a rustic ferry takes you there?
hi. i am going to croatia in september. we are staying in orasac. can anyone give us a bit of details about orasac. many thanks john.
We're going to be staying in Mlini at the end of Sept, beginning of Oct.
I was wondering if anyone knows if the buses and ferries are all still on full timetables then, or if we'd be better off hiring a car?
Also, I think from what I can tell from the internet that there are only a few bars and restuarants in Mlini - which is great if they are still open at that time of year?
And any advice on best way to get from the airport as the travel company was quoting £80 for a private taxi transfer, which sounded a lot as I thought it was only about 10km or so from the airport?
Thanks for any help and advice.
I want to know, how is the weather and sea in september at Dubrovnik?
Hello there, I'm looking for a nice quiet village on the sea shore near Dubronik out of which we can explore the entire region but still go sun bathing. The period we were planning on is 30 august - 8th of september.
We are two couples coming in by car and we are looking for some quiet place near Dubrovnik, like a few kilometers where we can explore the entire region from, but still have walking distance access to good beaches and maybe some nice restaurants. I'd rather look for private accomodation than stay at a hotel in order to save up money so we can explore one of the islands and spend a night or two there ( I was thinking about Mljet ).
I've heard the Dubrovnik area in South Dalmatia is the best part in all of Dalmatia, is this true? I'm really looking forward to visiting and I want to see all of it but I don't want to spend too much time driving around. I don't really want to stay directly in Dubrovnik because I imagine it is a bit crowded and more expensive and there's alot of tourist traps, but I want to spend a few days visiting it which is why I want to be somewhere near it.
I might have some more questions as they come to me. Maybe someone who has visited the area throughly could clue me in on the must do's and must see's. Thanks in advance for any suggetions, tips or ideas you may have for me, they are greatly appreciated as I have only a week or two to plan this and I want to make the most of it.
Hello, we are a group of eight people ( 4 adults, 4 children)and we will be in Dubrovnik between 15-21 july or a week later, depends on what accommodation we can find until then. Can you please recommend us any accomodation which could have availability for that period? I've been looking for almost a week and it seems that everything is booked. maybe someone who offers accommodation might visit this forum :) ..the budget is somewhere around 2.000 euros for a villa, or house, where we can stay all together. It can be also at a maximum 15-20 km far from dubrovnik, maybe with a seaview. If you can help me with any advice....thank you very much
I am considering going to Croatia for the first time, We would normally take our summer break in September prefering it not to be too hot, however, I looked at the weather forum and the rain count seems quite high, what experiences have other travellers had. I can't cope with anymore bad weather! I was also considering going to Sipan but having read reviews I think it would be too quiet for us. We are middle aged but like to have a range of cafes and restaurant to visit and promenading. We want to visit Dubrovnik and any advice on surroundings worth a visit. Our interests would be either being based on an island and have access to Dubrovnik, or being based on the, mainland with access to islands. We do need to avoid loud places and family centered places (done the family thing want some peace). Any pointers would be greatfully accepted.
We will rent a car from Zagrep and we will go down to Dubrovnik by car. I have four questions :
1/Do I have time to visit İstria region ?
2/What are the cities that I shouldn't miss for my first trip in Croatia ?
3/Which are the cities or island that I have to spend more than one day ?
4/Can I take my car to the islands like Korcula and Hvar ?
Finally I ask to people who know croatia well if you were for the first time in Croatia how you would orgonize your 8 days trip from Zagreb to Dubrovnik ?
I didin't reserve any hotel my trip is it a problem can I find places and better prices by walking in the places ?
Thanks for your time
I am contemplating whether I should get bus tickets to go from Dubrovnik to Brela or rent a car locally?
I've read some reviews from other members that were not very favorable to car-rentals companies in Croatia. Nevertheless, I would like to have some flexability once I get to Brela, so I can explore the coast further.
Any suggetions on rental companies in Dubrovnik? And should I purchase the extra insurance policy offered at the stores - i.e., collision+theft insurances? Are they really necessary in Dubrovnik? And how much should be the premium?
Thank you for your help.
Hello there! I am visiting Dubrovnik in October for 5 days and if possible, would like to do a day trip to Sarajevo. Does anyone know whether this is possible? I know there are buses departing from Dubrovnik to Sarajevo daily at 07h30 and that the bus trip is about 6 hours. Does anyone know what time buses depart Sarajevo for Dubrovnik & whether there is more than one departure per day? Alternately, are there any tour operators who offer a day trip to Sarajevo. About 7 years ago I did a trip from Dubrovnik to Mostar, but never made it as far as Sarajevo & really hope to make it this time. Any advice & suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks :o)
i've been checking this fabulous site for 2 years, but just been a member.

do you have any recommendations?
(may be we may pass to split or hvar. also any information about split clubs will be grateful)

Can anybody recommend the travelling from airport to the Grand Villa Hotel Argentina. Understood we should take an Atlas bus to the city center, but can not imagine further way using public transport.
Will it be expensive to take a taxi?
I'm looking for help to find a cheap flight from Athens to Dubrovnik. I've searched countless airlines, tried connections through other cities around Europe and the only thing I find is that there are no direct flights and flights connecting through other cities are expensive. I don't have the time to travel by ferry of train. Does anyone have any suggestions on this?
We're planning a trip to Croatia in mid-June for either 9 or 10 nights, incorporating starting in Dubrovnik (the way the flights work) and then spending 3 nights there, 1-2 nights in Korcula, 3 nights in Hvar and then 2 final nights in Split.
Can anyone advise whether 1 night in Korcula would be enough and if so what the best way of getting from Dubrovnik to Korcula and then on from Korcula to Hvar would be?
I've heard the ferry is good but how regular is it and how long does it take? Or would a bus be better?
I am flying into Cilipi Airport for 5 days at the end of April but haven't decided where to stay yet! I was considering going to Montenegro for a couple of days and then staying in Dubrovnik for the rest.
Does anyone know of any good guesthouses in Herceg Novi and if there are any buses from Cilipi directly to Herceg Novi? I have seen older posts that say there aren't but I was sure that I saw somewhere that there was now a bus. - I might be wrong!
I was also wondering - Dubrovnik looks stunning, but is it a bit of a tourist trap? if so, are there any other places in the region that would be recommended?
I am a solo female traveller, elderly, and am planning to travel thru Croatia in May/June 2009. I definitely want to visit Dubrovnik and Spitz but am undecided where else to go. I have about 15 days to travel..... and would also like to stay with families rather than a hotel for arounf 50 Euros. So any suggestions will be most welcome
Going to Mlini next week for a week. A friend recommended a trip to Kotor in Montenegro as he said it was only about 1hr 45 mins. Would anyone recommend hiring a car for this trip? Or is there any organised trips from Dubrovnik to this location? Would it be worth the visit? Is there any driving restrictions apart from presenting passport at the border crossing? I would appreciate any information.
Also, is the Euro widely accepted in Croatia ? Or is necessary to get the Croatian currency in advance?
We are planning a road trip by car on the coast road (E65)that runs from Croatia into Bosnia and Herzegovina then back into Croatia. Has anyone done that before, and do you need some sort of visa to get through Bosnia or will a UK passport be enough?
I will be in Dubrovnik for 3 days with a car and would like to know how much I can expect to pay for car parking for 3 days?
Any help appreciated.
Hoping to jet off to Croatia next week. Was intending to go to Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik, i have 10 days, how many days should i spend at each city/town?
Also will there be any problems getting good value accomadtion upon arrival
In mid-september I'll be in Trogir and need to get to Dubrovnik by bus or boat. Any ideas how to do it because the next day I have a plane to catch in Dubrovnik? Also, since I'll have to overnight in Dubrovnik, I guess I should stay near the airport. And I know there are no hotels at the airport but wondering if there are any recommended apartments or hotels (not terribly expensive) not so far from the airpot? thanks, j
