Love it, what is not to love even in the hottest day of summer. This is the place you must visit, go early summer or early fall.

We stopped in Kotor - founded by the ancient Romans as Acruvium - as part of our Queen Victoria cruise in September. I'd heard it was beautiful but nothing could have prepared me for the jaw dropping beauty of the sail in. A sight I'll...More

Gorgeous small town ruined by monstrous cruise ships which wreck the skyline and marine ecosystem, and disgorge thousands of lemming-like passengers daily who overwhelm the city in their cookie-cutter groups and have prompted the transformation of the local shops into tacky souvenir sellers. They should...More

Less commercialised than Dubrovnik and a walk up to the fort is a must. The cruise ship crowds do pack the place but that’s bearable.

We had a very nice guided tour of the old city, which is charming and completely walled in. Behind it is a steep trail into the mountains and worth the 45 minute hike to the top. The views of the harbor are incredible, and there...More

I walked into the old town and it felt cozy, clean, friendly and welcoming. Kotor is such a nice city and the Old Town has great deals on shopping, food and anything else. You won’t regret visiting it.

The old city of Kotor is very picturesque and the most important is not too overcrowded, so you enjoy your walking better. There are many secret corners which are waiting to discover them.

I think you don’t need a local guide to enjoy the old city of Kotor at all. For a quieter place to swim, don’t go to the city beach, but visit the opposite side of the bay, called Muo. It’s walking distance if you din’t mind... More

As you get to the front gate of the old city there is a tourist information kiosk. Your ship will likely dock within sight of this kiosk. They will be able to provide times and locales as well as a free map of old Kotor
