Climbing the Ladder of Cattero to the top allows you to enjoy the beautiful city of Kotor without the monstrosities of cruise ships destroying your view. Worth the trek up and then a wander down the alleys to find a square to eat ice-cream in to cool off. Whilst busy with tourists it is not overwhelming.

Came here as part of a yacht sailing trip. Absolutely lovely town and lots to see and do. The food is cheap and amazing and people are super nice.

Stari Kotor is not only charming and cute, but breathes of history and emenates elegance of an old maritime town. It is not very full of tourists, or at least does not make you feel like it is. It is really enjoyable to wander about the small streets and to continuously discover little details that make it so wonderful. It... More

Went on a day trip from Cavat to Montenego; Kotor was the second stop. There are two border crossings going to Montenegro from Croatia but it only took us about 15min to negotiate both, although apparently it would normally take longer (passport needed). Also, you need Euros for cash purchases in Montenegro. Inside the Kotor city walls, it is quite... More

Kotor is an Unesco protected middle age town. Very beautiful, very clean and with interesting restaurants and cafeterias. There is also a fortress outside the walls, on a hill. But If you are Greek and you have been to Rhodes island, Nauplio and Palamidi, there is nothing more to see there, frankly.

Away from the crowds, the city is charming and somewhere a little bit different. I recommend driving there rather than taking an organised tour then you can see the city at your own pace. If driving from Croatia, there is a ferry to cut out some of the driving - do this on the way back and drive there! The... More

WOW ! What a beautiful place, the old town was just stunning with surprises around every corner, lots of places to eat, drink and relax, if shopping is your thing plenty of shops to potter around. Make the effort and climb up the wall of the fortifications, its quite a steep hard climb but well worth the effort the view... More

A pretty setting on the water the old walled city is interesting. Lots of restaurants, shops, banks, & ATM's but lacks the charm of the old city of Dubrovnik. No a whole lot to do or see. If you are up for a hike you can hike up to the to a spot overlooking the city. We were there when... More

Sadly we did an excursion that gave us far too little time in this amazing place. The old city is situated at the foot of a large cliff face/mountain side there are city walls to walk around, that will take you up to various forts, churches amazing views. the old city is very picturesque, compact enough to get around at...
