The port of Dubrovnik, situated in the neighbourhood of Gruz, roughly 3 km northwest from the Old Town, is the departure point of all ferries and catamarans connecting Dubrovnik with other Croatian ports and Italian port of Bari.
Besides ferry to Italy, Dubrovnik doesn't have ferry connections to any other country (Montenegro, Albania, Greece or Turkey). It's possible to travel between Croatia and Greece by ferry, but only via one of Italian ports (Ancona or Bari).
