What is the most convenient method of travel between Dubrovnik and Venice?

I have found flights between the two cities. Are there ferries or trains? Thanks.

You can ferry to Ancona and then train to Venice. Dubrovnik is way south of Venice.

Amongst options are:
overnight ferry to Bari, then train to Venezia;
Jadrolinija's coastal ship to Rijeka, then bus to Trieste and train to Venezia;
bus to Split, overnight ferry to Ancona, then train in Venezia.
It depends on when you're travelling because there are more options in the summer.

Diane, I also posted about that question (going the opposite direction)and have been driving myself crazy with tons of research and options. When I looked at the flights, they were outrageous in terms of cost. Train service makes sense from Venice to Ancona as well as some indicated to Trieste. In the summer, there are ferries from Venice to various towns in Istria (Pula, Porec, Rovinj) but the schedule varies daily. If you have the time, you can defintely ferry from Venice all the way down the coast, stopping at many different islands (or the reverse route).

I threw in the towel and am now likely taking the train from Venice to Ancona (There is also ferry service from Pescara and Bari)and going to Split, then taking the bus to Dubrovnik. You could train to Bari and go across to Dubrovnik but I wanted to end up north of there.

Hope this is helpful---if you want more infor, let me know---I have the websites as well as some of last year's schedule as far as days of service. If you are looking for summer, it appears none of that info is available for at least a month or 2.

Or take boat from Dubrovnik south to Igoumenitsa from where a ferry runs direct to Venice (coming from Patras via Igoumenitsa and Corfu).

Another possibility, although I have done none of these, so can't compare the times, is to go by train to Milan or Rome or even Munich and take a budget flight:

There are no boats from Dubrovnik to Igoumenitsa or anywhere else in Greece. It's several years since Jadrolinija stopped doing this service.
