Cale Cross has indicated that this thread is about Croatia

Me and a mate want to travel from our native Geordieland to the Dalmatian coast.

I figured the best way was to get an ryanair to Stanstead, then to Bari/Ancona, and a overnight ferry from there. I intended to travel out of Bari to Dubrovnik and then into Ancona from Split. All this should be around £240

Is Ryanair to Italy the cheapest way or is there a cheaper airline? Zagreb seems to far, flying direct to Dubrovnik seems too expensive.

Hi, you can also check out www.thomsonfly.co.uk www.bmibaby.co.uk
Dont know if these fly from Newcastle or not but i know they are cheap. i am flying from coventry to ancona this june and paying about £30. The ferry across from Ancona to SPlit is only around £20 and then if u needed to get back across to italy, you could get the ferry from Dubrovnik to Bari and get a plane home from there.

Hope this helps. I have spent loads of time trying to find the cheapest way to travel to italy and Croatia and think that i found it.

Anything else u need feel free to let me know.

Thanks for that I'll try those two airlines, although I suspect Ryanair will be cheapest. Is it easy to camp in Dalmatia?

Well I've booked the flights for £185 which didn't seem too bad.

Where are good places to visit along the way?

Well last year i did the Istrian coast rather than the dalmation one, so dont really know any nice intermediate places along the way, am hoping to discover them on my travels this year. Dont know if ur planning on spending much time in italy, ir any, but RImini is very nice, just a bit futher north than Ancona, is a nice beach resort and well worth seeing.

My girlfriend is from Milan and i've travelled extensively through Italy (except Rome strangely enough). I don't fancy Rimini, its the Benidorm of Italy.

Me and my mate were considering perhaps one day either around Ancona or Bari.
