Getting to one of the prettiest coasts in Europe by sea is definitely one of the most romantic experiences you can imagine

The curved Croatian coastline has over a thousand islands, making it a real paradise for lots of boaters who come back every year to enjoy quiet bays and explore beautiful towns with a lot of history. Big ferry lines connect the main Croatian ports to towns in Italy on the other side of the Adriatic, and many shipping companies and agencies offer tons of choices for planning short or long trips.
