Travelling to Croatia by sea is surely one of the most romantic ways to reach this beautiful country. There are regular ferry connections from Italy to Dalmatia. If you travel via Milano you could head for Ancona and take a ferry there, instead of continuing towards Triest and Rijeka to reach Dalmatia. There are also ferries from Pescara and Bari to Split, Hvar, Vis, Korcula and Dubrovnik. However, there is a particularly high demand for ferry tickets from Ancona so it is recommended to book a ticket a few months before.
For a particularly romantic trip to Istria plan a stopover in Venice and take a ferry from there to Pula the next day.
