Don't go too early as you'll encounter all the day cruisers and you'll find it difficult to go through the narrow streets. I can't imagine how it is during the hot summer months. Waiters will start talking to you as soon as you'll start approaching their restaurants. Feels like Mont St Michel. I was a bit shocked by the amount... More

If you're staying in the area it's better to visit after 4pm as the Old City can get very crowded from 10am onwards due to the influx of cruise ship passengers. The Old City is really beautiful, with lots of big squares where you can sit and have something to eat and/or drink at one of the many restaurants, and... More

Full of History, very interesting to walk around although it can be really busy with visitors from the cruise ships invading. Very quiet at night when the ships have gone.

Perfect atmosphere there. Kotor is wonderful. If you avoid high season you will enjoy, but sometimens could be too fake to touristic

We visited Kotor on our cruise ship Oceana in May....It is a beautiful old town with shady windy streets.....a boon as it was so hot. Lots of interesting shops.....nice cafes.....a lovely place to wander around. Waiting for our tender to take us back to the ship we stood talking to a couple that had walked the hundreds of steps to... More

Had a day here on a trip round Montenegro.the town is beautiful and the monastery up the mountain as breathtaking, but I found the restaurants more expensive that elsewhere and the service poor.maybe has something to do with the fact that cruise ships stop here..4 in 1 day! So I guess a captive audience

We drove from Dubrovnik (Croatia) down to Kotor on 07.05.15. The drive was beautiful and relaxing along the coastal road surrounded by mountains which was great for my partner and I as we have never driven abroad. The old town of Kotor is like stepping back in time. The buildings are beautifully kept and very clean. There are so many... More

We enjoyed the old town, my wife shopped while I enjoyed a beer at the Havana Pub. We did this after climbing the castle walls all the way to the top and into the fort of st.john that sits on top of the mountain. This climb is well worth effort as the views over the town and harbour. We were... More

Great town to roam-around in for a couple of days. We didn't have any particular expectations going in but Kotor and it's bay turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Not much hustle & bustle (although traffic tends to build-up along the main road) but still plenty of cafes and restaurants etc. to try out. Make... More
