The architecture of this walled old town is striking. The beautiful city walls itself brought you back to ancient time. The narrow cobble streets with lots of old churches and street shops are worth spending a couple of hours or more. We were lucky that we went quite early and that it wasn't too crowded. We opted not going up... More

Another of the great walled cities along the Dalmatian coast. The immediate proximity of the cruise boat dock does lead to crowding but this is not a very big issue. Enjoy walking through the living history.

Very interesting sights within this walled city. It's neat to imagine what it would be like to live here.

The old town is not to be missed. The architecture is amazing. Getting lost in the town is really fun, trying to navigate yourself from one side of the town to the other. The only drawback is the hoards of tourists coming off the cruise ships in the daytime. We visited in the heat of the day, and I can... More

Lovely walled city. Seems like stepping back in town. Lots of narrow side streets to wander. A couple beautiful old churches and lots of old buildings. Many neat shops, but lots of standard tourist shops. Nice museum.

A beautiful, storybook town set under a mountain with a three mile wall on the mountain built to protect the dwellers from invasion is the first thing we noticed upon entering the bay of Kotor after sailing in through the "fiord". We enjoyed wandering through the town, shopping, sipping wine at a local wine bar and talking with locals. Walking... More

I was not expecting at all to see such an impresive old city. History of the place is explaining the architecture and the rest. A must see if you reach Montenegro or Dubrovnik.

Before our cruise, I had never heard of Kotor. After visiting it was our family's 2nd favorite port behind Venice. It is one of the places I could not recommend more. First it has some of the most incredible natural beauty. The bay it is located on is surrounded by stunning mountains. Every time you look up pr go around... More

A smaller version of Dubrovnik walled city. It is much less crowded, in particular before the cruise ship and bus-load visitors arrive. Do not miss climbing up to the fortress, it is an easy climb with spectacular views over the city and the Kotor Bay. Visit the city in the early morning, late afternoon or evening, you may have it...
