    1. Split
    Split is a port town with a lot going on. In summer it is packed with tourists piling out from the big Jadrolinija ferries. A mix of old history and a lot of modern developments makes Split a more metropolitan city than Dubrovnik. See more Split details here

    2. Hvar
    This little island lights up in July when the Amfora grand beach resort hosts the Ultra Beach Music Festival each year. The line up is yet to be announced for 2017 but they never disappoint with top DJ’s from around the world entertaining the biggest pool party on the planet! With 5000 tickets available, this will be a highlight on your Gap Map. See more Hvar details here


    3. Dubrovnik

    Get a return bus from Dubrovnik, over the border to Mostar in Bosnia Herzegovina. Make sure you check the timetables and book your ticket at least the day before. You can spend a couple of nights in Mostar before returning to Dubrovnik to get the ferry on to Italy!

    To reach Italy you will catch the overnight ferry from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Bari on Italys East coast. See here for ticket prices and timetables. Follow The Gap Map itinerary and it should cost around 45Euro for a ferry departing at 10PM on Wednesday 27 July. Of course you can also check the price comparison with flying from Dubrovnik to Napoli but often in peak season it will be cheaper to catch the ferry to Bari.
