You may make minor changes to your itinerary after the application. Usually, moving the date of onward travel between two Schengen countries (or even varying the route) would be minor.
You may not misrepresent your itinerary during the visa application, especially if that would change the consulate which handles your application.
You should not give the ...
In short, you risk running into problems at the border when you present the visa or are questioned by the border officer about your itinerary.
According to the Schengen visa code:
The Member State competent for examining and deciding on an application for a uniform visa shall be:
(a) the Member State whose territory constitutes the ...
According to Timatic, the system used by airlines, your residence permit means you can visit without a visa:
“The following are exempt from holding a visa:
Passengers with a residence permit issued by Sweden for a maximum stay of 90 days”
The ferry you chose before was a 21 hour ride. The trip you imagine would be twice that, nowhere within sight of land (except on the Spanish end), and through not particularly polite seas. Regardless, that ride does not exist.
I concur with not driving, having just done a driving trip twice that long myself, it would be a 2-day trip if you push, when ...
Did you look at the Saint Nazaire to Gijon Ferry>? This would still leave a 7.5 hour drive down to Lisbon, though. Ah, it may be that this service is no longer available :-(
Sorry, our Saint Nazaire - Gijon page is no longer available due to this service not running anymore. For an alternative, please visit the following pages
It seems that there is no direct option
From this quite old (2012) discussion on Le Routard.com (the website of a popular French tourist guide), there is no direct ferry route between Bretagne and Portugal. Ferries goes to Spain, in Gijon or Bilbao for example. This website confirms it was still the case in 2015.
This makes sense, as Portuguese main cities,...
It's hard prove a negative, but: Nantes to Lisbon is a two hour flight, easyJet, Transavia and Air France all do it, can't imagine there being a high demand for a ship this way. Even the Saint Nazaire-Gijon route was suspended five years ago and that's much shorter. That year is no coincidence -- the Perpignan–Barcelona high speed rail line opened in 2013 ...
There will usually be stops, either planned stops to drop and pick up passengers or mandatory stops for the driver's breaks. Unfortunately, it's sometimes difficult to know in advance exactly when and how long the bus will stop but 14 hours is a very long time to be driving (and illegal in most places, even outside the EU). I have even seen drivers stop more ...
I still have my visa for 30 days with multiple entry with maximum duration of 20 days.
I will presume from all you said this visa was issued by France.
Can I use that to travel on my own personally to Paris and Rome only, and go back to India from Rome?
Yes, not a problem, visas are issued for duration, not a fixed travel itin, the itin is necessary as ...
It sounds like a somewhat inflexible application of rules.
However, a plausible justification would be they want you to be awake and alert during the critical phases of flight. Both take-off and landing are situations where you might need to evacuate on short notice. This means it would be unsafe for passengers to be asleep, so use of sleeping aids such as ...
Not really an answer, but I thought I'd comment on what I ended up doing:
For most of the expenses, I paid cash using euros that I withdrew using my US cards. The exchange rate was fair, and there was little fee (ranging from $1 to $5 per withdraw, but some of the fees were actually refunded at the end of the month).
For some (larger) expenses, I paid using ...
Some online banks provide the solutions you need, like WeSwap or Revolut : For less than $10, you can get a Mastercard, top it up in your local currency and spend it in (almost) any foreign currencies.
I have one of them and I already bought a SNCF train ticket with it (and also some flight tickets in EU), I never get any trouble.
I think that would be hard to find.
AFAIK, most cruises leave early in the afternoon/evening to travel to the next destination by night.
I would suggest booking lunch for local food; there are a lot of good restaurants open for lunch.
Sea cruises have "all-inclusive" just on food. It doesn't mean you cannot eat locally.
But some comments:
Attention to "Tour Europe". If cruise do just EU ports, you have taxes included on all drinks. Just by having a port outside EU will make cruise cheaper.
late departures: 8-10pm is not enough to have dinner outside. South Europe will eat later, or you ...
The question has basically already been answered in the comments, but here we go, also with a few possibilities to solve the problem.
If you are correct with your statement in the question, that you are not allowed to enter Croatia, you will only have a single-entry Schengen visa. In this case, you will neither be allowed to take the bus from Venice to ...
