Los Angeles to Croatia Best Way?

What's the best way to get there without wasting so much time with stopovers, layovers, no train rides, please. Seems very expensive to get there. We can do rome or venice first I guess? Planning on September 4-14th.

My advice is to fly into a major European hub city such as Frankfurt, Paris or Rome and then connect to either Zagreb, Split or Dubrovnik with Croatia Airlines, one of the many budget operators or the airline that works best with your carrier from the States (depending on the alliance). It also depends on where you wish to go:

- Zagreb would be best for Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes and Istria,

- Split is good for northern Damatia: Krka National Park and islands such as Hvar, Vis or Brac.

- Dubrovnik is good for southern Dalmatia: Mljet, Korcula, and Peljesac Peninsula.

Aer Lingus, one stop in Ireland to Dubrovnik

British Airways, one stop in London, UK to Dubrovnik

Croatia Airlines is a member of an alliance so can book through fares with other airlines too.

wizzair & easyjet & ryanair all fly to the Adriatic cities and have great connections to major European cities.

You should do some research on fares and routing and can use a website called www.kayak.com. It does not sell tickets, it only gives you the approximate fare and operating flights.

If you want a travel agent assist or let them quote a price, in the LA area there is a company named Adriatic Travel. I cannot represent they would have any better prices than a web search however they do specialize in travel to Croatia and therefore know the options available.
