There's also the option of traveling to Ston by bus, but there are no direct connections between these destinations. With transfers, expect a five-hour trip by bus.
This 8-day tour includes both Trogir and Ston. Other stops include Split and its UNESCO-listed Diocletian's Palace, the waterfalls of Krka National Park, the island of Korčula, and the old town of Dubrovnik.
By Rental Car or Private Transfer
Duration: 2.5-4 hours
If you're traveling by rental car, drive from Trogir towards Prgomet from where you'll see the signs leading to the E65 toll highway. Exit the highway at Mali Prolog and continue on the D425 and then the D8 to Zaton Doli. From here take the D414 to Ston. Note that the D8 passes through a 5.5-mile-long coastal stretch belonging to Bosnia and Herzegovina and hence two international borders.
An alternate route to the highway is to follow the Jadranska Magistrala, the scenic coastal road that winds along the Dalmatian coastline. Consider stopping in Split or Omiš along the way.
Using a private transfer service is another convenient option for getting from Trogir to Ston. To find out details of private transfer services, get in touch with your local travel specialist.
Duration: 4.5-5 hours
