An Inexpensive Trip to Croatia
I am going back to Croatia again in August and made a great discovery. There is an inexpensive way to get to Dubrovnik (at least less expensive). I’m saving $600 by flying to Ireland and taking the 99 euro Aer Lingus shuttle to Dubrovnik. Plus I get to spend a night or two in Dublin, not bad. The best price on Orbitz is $1523 leaving from Boston with stops in Philadelphia and Franfurt. My fare with a stop in Dublin is about $800 with taxes using an American Airlines ticket I bought in January and the Aer Lingus Shuttle.
I love touring in Croatia take a look at e-bent.com for some pictures from my last trip. Dubrovinik is a beautiful walled city and Split has Diocletian’s Palace, the last remaining Roman Palace, plus 8th century churches nearby and good wine. Did I mention a beautiful warm blue sea and nude beaches? This is great and inexpensive touring. Go now the prices are going up 15% per year but you can still get a room in Dubrovnik for $30 per night.
Oh, I forgot to mention the Palm Trees, the Gellato Stands and the Side Walk Cafes. I changed my mind, you won’t like it.
Update 7/18/07 – Looks like shuttle runs on Tues, Thurs, and Sat. until Oct. 26 – lowest one way fare I see is 80 Euro. The Aer Lingus site is not the easiest but it works.
