Ferries between Dubrovnik and Bari in Italy
Ferries between Bari in Italy and Dubrovnik take between eight and nine hours. There are two companies which currently offer services between these cities, Jadrolinija and the Azzurra Line. Basic passage will cost about 49 Euros each way. Sleeping cabins are extra. These boats also transport vehicles.
Before planning a trip to Dubrovnik, make sure there are ferry connections. Travel options drop off dramatically after October and do not pick up again until May.
Flights to and from Dubrovnik
If your time is limited, you might want to consider flying to Dubrovnik. For non-Europeans, the best place for discount airfares is Europebyair.com. Each flight cost $99, which does not include taxes. There are no penalties for flying one way. To get to Dubrovnik, you will have to change planes in Zagreb. By doing this, you double the price as it will require two flight vouchers. Aer Lingus offers cheap nonstop flights between Dubrovnik and Dublin.
Getting to Kotor
The stunningly beautiful Bay of Kotor, across the border in Montenegro and just 80km south of Dubrovnik is, justifiably, a popular day trip from the city. Don't think you can do it by public transport though. There's only one bus a day in each direction. The bus from Dubrovnik leaves at 11am, the one from Kotor to Dubrovnik leaves at 1.15pm - so unless you're planning to stay the night, you simply cannot do it this way.
Yopur options are to either drive yourself, as we did, or take a tour. Atlas Tours in Dubrovnik offer a day trip for about US$60.
You can take a hire car into Montenegro without any extra formalities and this summer (2006) we found the border procedures very straightforward, simply showing our passports and hire car documents for a quick stamp and a wave through. No doubt the break with Serbia has had something to do with that! We took the narrow, twisting road all the way around the Bay to Kotor through Perast; the scenery is magnificent and on a Sunday in June, the road was all but deserted. Leaving the walls of Kotor behind us after our visit, we then continued on around the bay to Leperane where a car ferry operates around the clock to take you back to the northern side of the bay, which reduces the travelling time considerably and lets you see more of the bay at the same time rather than simply retracing your steps.
Getting to Dubrovnik from the UK
Look for a direct flight to anywhere in Croatia and you could be quoted prices anywhere up to £600 return. For the budget traveller it makes more sense to travel to Bari in Southern Italy with Ryanair and catch an overnight Jadrolignia Ferry to Dubrovnik. Bear in mind that there isn't much to do in Bari and that it is impossible to find a restaurant open for a quick dinner before the ferry departs.
Also, prepare for the biggest crush ever trying to get through Bari ferry terminal! The ferries themselves are comfortable enough, have a bar where you can get cheap Croatian wine, and a characterless restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Costs around £50 one way.

Cilipi Airport is located 22 kilometers outside of Dubrovnik in the village of Cilipi. The airport is small and very easy to navigate with a coffee shop, a small shop in the domestic departure area and a duty free shop in the international departure area. There is also a post office, bank, currency exchange and the Atlas tourist agency as well as a general airport information booth.
Flights within Croatia are fairly cheap especially if purchased from within the country. If you purchase ahead online, you'll pay MUCH more. Also, the earliest flights are often significantly cheaper than the later flights.
To get into town, just jump on the Croatia Airlines bus that leaves every 30 minutes and will be waiting out front. The bus takes around 25 minutes to get to the main bus station in town. As of February of 2004, the cost was 30 kunas each way. A taxi will probably cost more than most flights (around 250kn)!!
Airport - Cilipi - Dubrovnik
Traveling by plane is a convinient and comfortable way to visit Dubrovnik. Many European companies have regular flights to Zagreb and from there the Croatian national carrier, Croatian Airlines, provides regular flights to Dubrovnik. The airport is called Cilipi airport and it is located about 18 km from the city center.
If you are arriving on a regular flight, there are regular buses departing from the airport to Dubrovnik. Travel time is around 20 minutes. For those preferring to take a taxi to Dubrovnik, there are taxi-cars waiting throughout the entire day (just outside the airport hall). You will probably be offered a price in advance, or you can demand that the price be determined by the taximeter.
When traveling from Dubrovnik, the departures of the regular buses from the main bus terminal are 90 minutes before the estimated takeoff time.
As in most of the old cities I visited also here the best way to get around is by walking, to most places we could just walk to because you do not really need to get to the modern side of the city with the exception of getting to the central bus station and then we used the local bus.
It is good to know that there is Airport Shuttle Service from the airport to Dubrovnik. The service is run by local company and the bus stop by the old city so if your accommodation is somewhere there that is the most economic way to get cheat to the city.
I am not sure of the bus schedule but it will obviously be available according to flights arrival schedule.
This is the bus terminal, from here you can take buses that run to neighbouring countries, Montenegro and Bosnia. We took the bus that goes to Budva in Montenegro, it took about 3 hours including some delay in the border check. One Way Ticket was 128 kuna in 2010.
Our accommodation was either in the old city or just outside it. For most places we didn’t need to use any local transportation but when needed to get to the central bus station we used the local bus service which is easy to use as well as it is cheap. The bus stop is just outside the walls of the old city.
Boats and yachts
Dubrovnik is a city by the Middle Terranean Sea and so it is a city of boats and yachts. Sailing is very popular here, you can get cruises to the islands around or just cruise around and back. Best is of course, arriving here with your own yacht ;-)
Dubrovnik has a small international airport just outside the city which is very convenience for the regional visitors. And so we had our direct flight to Dubrovnik airport and from there after quick passport check it was just a short bus ride to our hotel in the city.
Dubrovnik is a major transport hub in the south of Dalmatia. The bus station is busy, and in summer is teeming with tourists heading in and out. You'll probably want to book ahead in the peak season to avoid being left behind. Buses run all over the region, both within Croatia, and without to Bosnia and Montenegro.
To get to and from the bus station take local Bus number 7.
To/From airport & Mostar / Kotor
From the airport, it costs 35 kunar and took around 45mins
To Mostar in B&H, it costs 104 kunar (Leaving at 1515, and another one left at 1700) - it took 3.5 hours. Have your passport to hand as the road leaves Croatia then comes back into Croatia before finally entering B&H so you have to go through the border 3 times. The bus is a similar price back from B&H,slightly cheaper, leaving at 12.30pm.
To Kotor, the cost is 100 kunar, leaving at 1900 and taking 3.5 hours!
A bus from the main bus station north of the old town to the old town costs 10 kunar.
