Many travellers visit Italian capital Rome and then continue their travel to Croatia. One of the most popular entry points to Croatia is the city of Dubrovnik. There are several options available for travelling between these two popular Mediterranean destinations.
The most quickest way is to take a direct flight from Fiumicino Airport to Dubrovnik Airport. Another option would be to take a high-speed train to the port of Bari and from there take an overnight ferry to Dubrovnik. In the text below find more details about getting to Dubrovnik from Rome.
The quickest and the most comfortable way of travelling from Rome to Dubrovnik is by plane. The flight usually takes around 1 hour 15 minutes.
There are currently two airlines that operate direct flights on this route - Vueling Airlines and Wizz Air (April until the end of October). Croatia Airlines connects Rome with Dubrovnik via Split and Zagreb all-year long.
If you have plenty of time to spare and want to see a little bit of Italy then taking a ferry across the Adriatic is a good choice for you.
In this case first you will need to take a train from Roma Termini Station to one of the ports on the Italian coast (BARI or ANCONA) and from there catch a ferry to Croatia (sailing time is around 10 hours).
