So, I just got back from italy, with my Ukrainian wife travelling only with the ID card stating family member and Ukrainian passport.
From constanta, no problems at the ryanair visa check desk or at the passport control, not even 1 question asked.
Arrving in Italy, also no questions but no entry stamp.
Leaving Pisa, the Passport Officer was going into one. He didnt speak English but started calling everyone, complaning to his colleage then finally stamped us out and said "dont return to Italy" twice in an angry way. Bit my tongue and just said arevederchi in my best English Accent.
In Constanta they also kept us for 10 minutes asking questions, finally I said I worked for the British Council in Varna (my old job) and his face dropped and then let us go.
So, in my experience, if you can get the visa free anyway, youll save yourself a lot of stress by getting it, even if it means 2 trips to Sofia. However, if you feel brave or lucky, give it a go travelling with just the ID card.
