This little town is like a miniature toy village, it's got everything in it. The clock Tower, a few historical churches, palaces, town hall, restaurants and souvenir shops. Don’t underestimate this little town, you can easily get lost in the narrow winding cobblestone lanes. I love the atmosphere of this little town , I hope I can come back here... More

This beautiful old town is well worth a visit if you're anywhere in the area. It's a little more expensive than other parts of Montenegro but do stay here, within the walls, if budget allows. Any guide book will take you to all the key historical sites and museums but make sure you save time to climb the walls. The... More

Definitely something to do, and something for everyone. Some history, some shops with crafts, some souvenirs, and some local cuisines all make it a stop worth taking.

First of all, The Old city is not big. But it is big enough for you to lose yourself in the narrow streets, different churces (Orthodox and Catholic) and tiny stores. The cafes and restuarants might be a little expensive but you may enjoy that lovely Mediterranean atmosphere.

We visited Kotor on a cruise without really being prepared for what a treat we were in for! If you are looking for a cruise in this region, do look for one that will stop in Kotor. - The arrival by cruise ship is spectacular, - most mid-size ships can dock right outside the old city walls, so you don't...

Stone buildings, narrow winding alleys, beautiful churches, many restaurants & cafes, all with the backdrop of very nearby steep mountains. Motor Old City is well worth a day trip - or more - from Dubrovnik.

We really didn't know much about Montenegro but the cruise ship stopped there, thankful. This is one of the more beautiful places I've been in my life. We took a driving tour out of the city as well, up the hill and that gave you a spectacular view from above looking down on the bay/Ria and the old wall city.... More

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.
