Suggestions for Transportation and Itinerary - Venice, Dubrovnik, Athens

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are planning a two week trip to Europe next summer. I know people always advise for a longer stay, but with our jobs, this is all we have. Our idea was to fly into Venice, spend a few days in Venice and then head to Croatia, probably Dubrovnik, but we're open. After spending a few days in Croatia we'd like to head to Athens and Santorini, and eventually fly out of Athens back home to the states.

Last time we were in Europe we flew between each of the countries we visited, and I'd like to avoid that. I'm curious if anyone has traveled from Venice - Dubrovnik - Athens and how they did? Looking at the Eurorail website, it doesn't look like a train goes from Venice to Dubrovnik. Flights are pretty expensive ($300-$400), so I was trying to think if there were any other options (e.g., ferry?).

Worst case scenario, we thought we could eliminate Croatia and just do Venice and Greece.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
