Hi,

I am travelling with my sister in August from South Italy (not sure where we are leaving from) and we plan to go to Croatia from there.

What is the best way and best location from Italy to get to Croatia? Pretty flexible with from where, but will be somewhere south of Rome.

Any other advice on Sicily and Croatia, tips, places, things to do would be great .

Thanks and happy travels! :)

Hi Casey,

If you google direct ferries Uk you will find the info you need. There are numerous ports up and down both the Croatian and Italian coastlines where ferries cross to and from.

If your travels take you to Southern Italy may I suggest that you consider a ferry from BARI to DUBROVNIK. I've not been to Italy but have come in to DUBROVNIK by sea from the Croatian islands and it is a spectacular view.

From Dubrovnik traveling north, the Dalmatian coast is full of spectacular coastal scenery (I'd recommend MaKARSKA for a place to hang out on the beach) and if you have the time and means the island hopping cruise is also something I'd recommend. Just google island hopping Croatia to see what's on offer - leaving from various locations I think. I'd love to go back and spend some time on an island called 'Korcula' (birthplace of Marco Polo) which presents like a min Dubrovnik but an island.

Another very popular tourist place in Croatia is PLITVICE LAKES (located roughly three quarters of the distance from Dubrovnik to Zagreb if you're intending to fly out of Zagreb) I've not been to Plitvice but wish I had. You'd probably be able to incorporate a day tour there from numerous Croatian coast places like SPLIT for example. Otherwise you may be able to find a tour that takes you to the lakes and then on to Zagreb.

If you're needed to return to Italy to catch flights you can catch a ferry from the region of Istria to Venice.

Enjoy!

Himike1989,

Can you recommend a good route to take from Palermo to Bari to be done in about 10 days?
Trying to do as much of Sicily in this time frame between 1 August to about 10th August (depending on the ferry dates).

Thanks

Great choice to travel around South italy and visit Sicily and Apulia, best southern regions.
In my opinion 10 days are not too much.
I'd recommend to visit Palermo, cefal├╣, etna volcano and taormina in sicily (but of course there are also the islands, siracusa, agrigento, catania, caltagirone and many other places...).
In Apulia visit Taranto southern coast and Salento with a wonderful sea (ionian), Grottaglie and ceramic town, Alberobello, Ostuni, Otranto, Martina Franca e Locorotondo, Lecce...

I can also help you with accomodation in Apulia's region
