Protected by about 3 miles long old walls this Old Town survived with full of medieval churches, palaces,etc. Walking around squares and narrow streets paved with old cobblestones we enjoyed this historical atmosphere. Tourists groups from big and small cruise ships and tourists buses from the nearby cities visit daytime, so we rambled through the streets mainly in the morning... More

Small total area but filled with churches and restaurants. There are three entrances but most tourists use the main Sea Gate entrance.

The old city is surrounded by ancient walls, and a very long, and steep, climb up to the church at the top of the mountain. Lots of narrow streets, plenty of shops and cafes, and a place which is filled with centuries of history. If you are visiting the are, this is an absolute must.

Kotor is not a big city...small, clean, easy to walk around. If you love to shop and eat, this city is definitely one of them. They have lots of nice little boutiques and restaurants every where. There are some nice hotels as well. We climbed up the mountain to see a beautiful sights of the city and we did really... More

Tiny streets, packed with little boutiques and restaurants. Don't visit Montenegro without coming here.

Lots of nice little places to check out. The most interesting part is off the back where you can walk up 1350 steps (be prepared!) and see a panorama of the bay. Absolutely beautiful. Then back to the old town for a cheap beer!

This is a spot you should NOT miss if you are nearby. Obviously if you are planning to go ... DO IT. I was fortunate as there was only 1 cruise ship in the harbor. The old city is fantastic. I had thought of going to Budva but riding the bus through it .... Was a turn off ... For... More

This is a great little historic city on a beautiful bay. One can't really get lost so just wander and explore until you are ready for lunch or some gelato.

I love the little town at the foot of the mountain. The winding streets reminded me of Venice but instead of canals there was a giant mountain looming overhead. There were uneven steps of polished stone leading uphill. We had a nice time walking through the city to get to the 2,000 steps that lead to St. John's fort. We... More

A wonderful place to amble and mosey the day away, there are lots of cobbled streets and interesting and unique shops. There are also a lot of feral cats but all are friendly and loving all the attention they get. Watching the kittens trying to catch pigeons was especially entertaining. On a hot day this will be a good place... More
