Ferries to Montenegro

Found in the Balkan Peninsular in south-east Europe, Montenegro boasts a short, picturesque coastline where dramatic mountains meet the Adriatic Sea.

Perhaps the most noteworthy feature is Mt Lovcen, nicknamed ‘The Black Moutain’ due to its dark complexion. It is a national park in the southwest to which the country owes its name, with ‘Monte’ as ‘mountain’ and ‘negro’ as ‘black’ in Italian.

The park offers fantastic cycling and hiking along the winding mountain paths, with the vast wooded area teaming with wildlife. It is home to over 85 species of butterfly, various reptiles, brown bears and around 200 species of bird. In fact, Montenegro has the highest levels of biodiversity in Europe, with over half of the continent’s bird species regularly seen there.

Cycling along the 295km coast is a great way to enjoy the charming towns and historic landmarks.

Some notable stops include Herceg Novi in the Bay of Kotor, a popular spa and health centre with healing sea mud and mineral water springs nearby. It’s also home to Forte Mare, built in 1382 and an impressive 19th Century clock tower.

The Old Town of Kotor is laced with 9th Century walls and offers unbeatable views across the mountainside. At night, it becomes spectacularly lit up and glistens in the water, making the perfect romantic setting.

The Old Citadel in Konoba Stari Grad is another fine example of the nation’s unique architecture, a 19th Century castle offering more stunning views and a fascinating library full of rare literature.

Venturing slightly inland, you’ll find a small historic town called Stari Bar nestled in the wooded mountainside. It has church remains, an 11th Century fortress, foundations of St George’s Cathedral and a 17th Century aqueduct, so remember to bring a camera.

The National Museum of Montenegro in Cetinje comprises two galleries and four museums and is definitely worth a visit. It provides a comprehensive insight into the country’s tumultuous past, namely the many conflicts with the Ottoman Empire.

There are four sailings every week departing from Bari in southern Italy, which arrive in Bar on the south coast and last around ten hours. If you are travelling to northern Montenegro, sailing from Bari to Dubrovnik, Croatia, then crossing the border would be a more time efficient journey.

  • "Enjoyable way to travel between Croatia & Italy !"

    We had a lovely journey from Split to Ancona on the ferry & highly recommend it to anyone deciding which way to travel. Friendly staff + ok food ( would have preferred it a bit hotter) & a cabin for the night.

  • "Efficient, friendly and helpful "

    I travelled with Jadrolinija yesterday from Dubrovnik to Bari. I'd done my research/ read reviews beforehand so knew my printed ticket wasn't the actual ticket, and I'd have to go to an office across the street from the ferry port to collect it. The whole process of asking staff at one location as to where to collect it, picking it up, boarding the Ferry, directions and help from the staff/ crew, was extremely great! They were friendly, helpful, forthcoming and situated at the different places on the Ferry to tell the passengers where to go. We left on time. It wasn't busy or rushed. Just a calm relaxed atmosphere throughout. I bought my own food, so cannot comment on what was provided. I bought the seated ticket, so also cannot comment on the cabins situation. But I can say I slept Well, and there were order on the pFerry, as in passengers who bought the non cabin and seated seats, didn't come into the seated area to sleep. When departing the Ferry, it was just as I wrote above. I think it was the captain (wished I asked), was just so lovely, friendly and helpful. Carried my suitcas down the stairs, as well as helping other passengers. He took the time out to say bye to us, shake some of our hands etc. Overall, I'm really impressed with my experience, and would have no problem at all booking Jadrolinija again. Many thanks to the all the staff!

  • "A peasant experience"

    We were walk on passengers and had a pleasant journey from Bar to Bari on 18th September 2019. Our 2 berth outside cabin was quite large with a toilet and very efficient shower, allowing us to shower, change and walk around the deck before the cars and trucks had got anywhere near getting onto the ferry. The loading of cars and lorries did seem to take a long time but as walk on passengers we had a very pleasant journey, with passport checks at either end being very simple and quick. The port of Bari was easy to exit from and straight into the old town.

    Good trip, worthwhile having a cabin overnight, but a bit small with no shower.
