Istanbul to Montenegro

I am looking to go from Istanbul to Montenegro and then to Milan. I was suggested the Balkan flexipass. How do you book your tickets? Like from Istanbul to Montenegro? Then Montenegro to Milan

    Hi Christine,

    A Balkan Flexipass would cover the ticket costs for your travel from Istanbul to Montenegro. A rail connection from Istanbul to Podgorica, for instance, would take at least 19 hours in duration and involves changing trains at least twice along the way; once in Dimitovgrad and then once in Gorna Orjahovica. The portion from Istanbul to Dimitovgrad would be on an overnight train that would require reservations in addition to the rail pass; however, reservations on this train are only able to be purchased locally in Europe. Since these trains are not able to be booked from anywhere outside of Europe, their schedules won't display on our website. If you would like to inquire about schedules for this route, you would call us at 1-800-622-8600.

    You can purchase the Balkan Flexipass here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket... .

    With regard to your travel to Milan, I would recommend that you to take the ferry from Bar in Montenegro over to Bari in southeastern Italy, where you would then continue on by rail up to Milan. There are direct trains from Podgorica to Bar that take about an hour in duration. Your Balkan Flexipass would cover this train as well.

    The ferry from Bar to Bari would be overnight or cover the course of a day. The operator for this ferry service is called 'Montenegro Lines'. You would contact them in order to purchase tickets.

    You can purchase tickets for a rail connection from Bari to Milan by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com. Trains in Italy are only able to be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure.
