Travel Information

As Dubrovnik is the most southern city in Croatia, the most practical way to reach it is to do so by air, especially as there’s a very good frequency of flights during the summer months.

The airport is located some 20 km south of the city. See e.g. this link for connections. We recommend public transportation because it is convenient enough, although there is also a taxi or Uber:
Take Airport Shuttle Bus and get off at the Pile Gate, change to Libertas Bus No6 and get off at the Post office Lapad (10th stop). The regular Dubrovnik Airport Shuttle Bus service is provided by Atlas Agency in Dubrovnik.  Upon arrival buses meet all scheduled flights at the Dubrovnik Airport for a transfer to Dubrovnik Main Bus Station
Bus will be parked alongside the building. It leaves the airport after most or all passengers have cleared the arrivals area.  Tickets are bought on the bus, a one-way ticket is 40 Croatian Kuna, while a return ticket is 70 Croatian Kuna. After leaving Dubrovnik Airport it first stops at Pile Gate in front of Old Town Dubrovnik, continuing afterwards to the Main Bus Station in Gruž Port. Participants need to exit at the Pile gate, take Bus No 6 and exit at Post office Lapad (10th Station).



Best solution is to get bus n. 7 at the usual roundabout above the hotel, get off at the last stop where the airport shuttle can be found. Bus n. 7 takes 15 minutes and shuttle takes 35 minutes. Here are the timetables:

Other solutions are 1) to get bus n. 6 and get off after three stops (Starcevica) and wait for the airport shuttle there; 2) get bus n. 6, get off at Pile Gate, walk until the "cable car station" and wait forthe shuttle there. Beware that the shuttle may be full in these stops.
