Default Thread Title:  Crossing the Adriatic - Plane or Ferry?

To get from Italy to countries accross the Adriatic like Croatia, Slovinia, Bosnia, etc., which makes more sense, ferry/boat or plane? Or train I guess too?

Cost, safety, time in transit are all important considerations. If anyone has some experience with traveling accross the Adriatic I'd really appreciate some advice! Thank you!

I love to travel by ferry, Sara. It's relaxing, feels like a mini-cruise, allows you to see some ports along the way where the ferry stops, you can get some great photo opps, and the ports are, for the most part, the places the cities grew up around whereas the airports are way out of town.

A few hints:
1. Travel light! You will appreciate not having to drag anything heavy on and off of ferries.

2. Buy 1st class passage if you can afford the splurge. Seats are more comfortable and fare often includes snack/drinks/ and sandwich fixin's.

3. Try to take a fast-boat which tends to be newer and a smoother journey and often offers such on-board amenities as current films (I saw "Sliding Doors" and "Terms of Engagement" on board different ferry journeys
