Hi guys im travelling in july this year but stll havent organised the trip yet ....i was wondering if anyone knew what is the cheapest way to get from italy to croatia or from croatia to italy ......
the Ferries i have looked at seem to be very expensive $400 im sure there is something cheaper..... and also cheap accommodation in Split....???
Thanks guys any help or previous stories and experiences would really help
Prices should not be that high, especially when it is only you on your feet. It should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 EUR just for you maybe another 60 for a car.
Best figure out from where you want to go to where, then find the name of the ferry company and then check out their local .it website - it should have the current prices. (I think that the 400 USD might have been for trucks or similar.)
Cheap acco in croatia or italy and july/august is something of a contradiction - hard to find, especially in touristy areas along the Med.
If you are on a very tight budget I recommend taking along a tent in your backpack and staying mostly at camping sites. It has the advantage that you'll always have a place to sleep, no matter where you are. It cuts accomodation prices by half or down to nothing if you are camping wild. The disadvantage is the weight, so it is only worth taking along a tent if you are using it at least 80 % of the time.

In terms of getting the ferry it is more expensive from Italy to Croatia than the other way. The best / main place to get ferries from / to is Bari in the south of Italy and Ancona further north. In craotia they will be go both Dubrovnik and Split as well as some to the north. I only took the ones to the south of croatia though, so not sure about going north. I paid €60 for a single crossing from Anona to Split. Took about 4 hours and i think it was with either blue line or jadrolinija. The one from Dubronik to Bari was an overnight one, which actually cost less than the crossing from italy. If you do a google search for the above named boat companies you should come up with something.
Hope this helps
In english. You can even find precise prices.
Italian ports of exit are Bari and Ancona, and even Pescara. You can go to Zadar, Dubrovnik or Split.
Advice: go to Dubrovnik, it is expensive place to stay, but a lot of fun. If you want you can make it cheaper - use the local room owners.
Move along the coast up north - good bus service available.
Have a nice time here
the cheapest way is the shortest way - Trieste to Croatia thru Slovenia - no?
google ferry italy croatia
viamare.com is one company, and theyre pretty reasonable!
definitely cut costs by camping, south of Dubrovnik great camp grounds...........cheap all through Croatia to camp, can even camp in peoples back yards..............very hospitable
