You can get to Dubrovnik by flight, ferry, bus or car. Note that there are no trains to Dubrovnik!
You can arrive directly to Dubrovnik, or first take a flight or ferry to Split and then a bus or car to Dubrovnik (cca 230 km, 3h drive) or a ferry (for those options check out sections ferry and bus).

If you are coming from abroad, flying to Dubrovnik is probably your best option. Dubrovnik hosts a small, but international airport. In season (April to November) there should be a number of international flights. In addition, throughout the year from Zagreb (the Croatian capital) there are several flights a day served by Croatia Airlines.
To get from/to airport it is best to take a bus or a taxi.

If you are coming from southern Italy, taking a ferry to Dubrovnik is probably your best option as there is a regular ferry connection between Bari and Dubrovnik. It is an overnight journey that takes about 12 hrs. The ferry line is in operation between March and October.

In case you intend to travel from Italy to Dubrovnik in other periods of the year, there is all year round ferry from Ancona to Split. The ferry to Dubrovnik is also suitable if you are travelling from Split, Brac, Hvar, Korcula and Mljet between April and October.

Ferry’s are operated by Jadrolinija.

Dubrovnik’s main bus station is located right next to the ferry terminal in Gruž harbor/suburb on about 3 km from the Old Town.
