Kotor

overview

A trip to Kotor, a medieval city located at the mouth of a dramatic fjord, offers all the rich history of a UNESCO-listed town along with the beauty of an Adriatic coastal port. You’re poised to see it all from a four-star hotel in the center of the Old City’s main square. From there, you can enjoy narrow streets that lead to buildings from the 14th to 18th centuries, and monuments spanning the breadth of Western history. A day trip to the limestone peaks and fissures of Lovćen National Park offers dramatic mountain views and astonishing biodiversity. A tapestry of culture and history, Kotor is an Adriatic escape to remember.

Day 1

Kotor

Arrival in Kotor; city walking tour, easy (1 hour)

You are transferred to your hotel in the main square of the UNESCO-listed medieval town of Kotor, tucked under mountains in the stunning Bay of Kotor, the Adriatic Sea’s only fjord. After time to settle in, your local guide meets you at the hotel for an introductory walking tour of Kotor. With its privileged location at the end of the Kotor Fjord, the entire town, which was inhabited from the times of the Illyrians and the Romans, seems like a living museum. Its narrow streets wind through beautifully preserved buildings from the 14th to 18th centuries and you visit, among other sites, the Cathedral of St. Tryphon, St. Luka Church, and St. Mihail Church. Returning in the early evening, you step out on your own for dinner, with the guide’s or hotel’s restaurant suggestions.

A fully renovated four-star hotel with outdoor café terrace located on the old city of Kotor’s main square. Within a historic building, decor is stylish and contemporary in comfortable guest rooms, café, restaurant, and cigar lounge; also with a small fitness room, sauna, and steam room.

Day 2

Kotor

Lovcen National Park, various walking options, easy to moderate; Afternoon option to the Adriatic Sea or Skadar Lake

This morning, your guide and driver picks you up at your hotel, taking you straight to the Lovcen National Park, dominated by Mount Lovcen with its twin 5,000-foot peaks of Stirnovik and Jezerski. A winding road rising to the park offers stunning vistas back towards the Kotor Fjord. The park has a network of walking trails of varying lengths and levels of difficulty over its vast limestone geology and among its great variety of plants—over 1,000 species. You may drive to the park’s highest point, where 500 steps lead to the summit and an important site for Montenegrins—the mausoleum of Petar Petrovic II Njegoš, a poet, philosopher, prince-bishop, and statesman. Rewarded with spectacular views, on a very clear day you may be able to see Italy across the Adriatic.

In the afternoon, you have the choice of driving down to the coast at the charming town of Budva and its surrounding beaches—Montenegro’s Riviera. Alternatively, you can proceed to Skadar Lake, the Balkan’s largest lake on the border with Albania, which is ringed by dramatic karst mountains and dotted with traditional fishing villages, island monasteries, and pristine beaches, and home to more than 260 species of birds. You return, after this full day, to your hotel in Kotor, to relax and enjoy dinner on your own.
