I have been looking into getting the ferry from Split to Ancona, I found prices for this journey for 24EUR but have seen that you have said it costs 75EUR for a one way journey. I was wondering if I have found incorrect information and it is definitely 75EUR?

Also, is it recommended to book the ferry beforehand or is it the same price/available to book on the day of travel?

hi Sophie ...

here is a more up to date information: https://rail.cc/en/ferry-italy-croatia/f2338

it might be EUR 25 - depends on the season.
but in most cases concerning traveling by ferry you will have to add port tax and petrol supplement.
so it will be something around 35-40 EUR.

I am not sure about fares at the day of departure as I am more a rail specialist - the ferry information is only a bonus. 🙂

How likely is it that these ferries are crowded in late July? Do we have to buy tickets in advance?

Hi Lars.

As long as you know your exact travel date, book the ticket already in advance.
It depends on the ferry: if you can buy a deck ticket with no necessary cabin to stay overnight, you will always get a ticket. This is for example the case for the ferries Italy-Greece and back.

Update on this since I might consider taking a ferry from Italy to Croatia instead of the complicated travel via Venice/Gorica/Ljubljana.

I found a ferry on www.blueline-ferries.com which departs most days at 20.30 from Ancona and will arrive the next morning in Split. You can select 4 and 2 bed cabins starting around €47 (including Port Tax etc). These ferries are more expensive than I thought, but it does save you on hostel costs (which would be around €15 for the cheapskate, namely me). I also like their booking system, gives you a nice quote on the specific date and ferry you're looking for. They seem to have other routes as well.

I also calculated the costs for the link given in the first post as well. I got up to €16 on August 20th (so high season), with 8 euro taxes. Do I have to purchase the Carry on Luggage as well? I only have a medium-large backpack, but this would set me back another €10.

there are also more ferry-links across the mare Adriatico-not just to Split and also to Split from other IT-ports.
The comp. from Hrvatska is JADROLINIJA-hey also do the long boatroutes-summer only-along their coast, all the way from Rijeka to Dubrovnik, with many stops.
