I have a few questions beyond the title but wanted to get your attention first.
My husband and I are traveling to Croatia this October. We will start in Split and do a bareboard boat trip through the islands and then return to Split after 10 days. We then plan to go to Dubrovnik for 4 days and fly home from Dubrovnik.
What would be the best way to travel from Split to Dubrovnik in early October? I have heard recommendations for both ferry and bus. What are the benefits of each?
I would also like to hear thoughts for our time in Dubrovnik. There are supposed to be between 4,000 and 10,000 cruise ship passengers each day. Yikes! Our lodging is in the walled city. Should we try to do day trips and get out of town since it is so congested with tourists or do tons of tourists do the day trips?
Finally do you have advice for a small tour operator or private driver for day trips out of Dubrovnik and Split?
Thanks for any guidance you can provide!
