Need some help gettin into the Balkans from the UK.
We have about 3 weeks to travel thru Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, and Montinegro but havin trouble finding a cheap flight. Going in November it seems all the Skyeurope flights are not available for November - same with Easyjet. So....we were thinking of a cheap Ryanair flight from London to Bari, Italia - THEN a ferry to Dubrovnik.
Anyone have better ideas? Or has anyone any idea on the ferry routes and times from Italy to Croatia?
Unfortunately I have no idea about frequency of ferries Bari-Dubrovnik at that time but I have some other suggestions... What about flight London - Ljubljana (by Easyjet or Wizzair) or London - Trieste (Ryanair)? There is less than 3 hours by train to Zagreb from Ljubljana... I think you should consider where to start at first (in the south or north) and make a plan of priority destinations... I can "tell" you from experience - we travelled through the same countries by car for 3 weeks as well and we didn't manage to see whole of them. If you are dependent on public transport this is even more difficult.
Wish you nice "Balkan route"...
I should have said - we are finishing in the Koper/Trieste area so we want to start near to Greece and work our way up. Iv actually been to a few of the countries already - so its just to see some of the bits ive missed in the past - mainly Serbia/Bosnia. But may also extend to a month...
the latest plan is a ferry from Italy to Split - then down towards Montinegro I think.?!
