The highlight for us was the actual sail up the fiord to the port of Kotor. Absolutely majestic. Once at the town is easy to walk around, enjoy the walls of the old town and dine in one of the numerous restaurants.

We first went on the Hopon hop off bus ,with an included walking tour of the old city. The old city is enclosed by walls and not very big. it is... More

We visited this beautiful town with our young kids. They loved the ancient small streets and beautiful buildings. We didn't walk up to the castle as is was too hot, but the view is probably amazing. Think twice if you make this day trip by car from Dubrovik as you need to be prepared for long waiting time at the... More

We flew to Tivat and hired mopeds to stay in Kotor Old Town as we had read some amazing reviews about it. The town is also in the top ten places to visit. It is stunning - the streets are wiggly and narrow and you can so easily get disorientated and lost in this medieval town. There are no cars,... More

Having been tendered to the town pier from our cruise ship, old town Kotor was only a couple of hundred yards away. Once inside the town, it reminded me of the D&D game "lots of twisty-windy passages, all alike", Although they were different. We wandered through the city and quickly lost our way. Fortunately locals seem to be used to... More

We stopped here as part of our cruise and was one of the best places we visited. The scenery is out of this world with plenty of history. It still retains it's original charm and character. Lots of bars & restaurants to chose from. Food and drink very reasonably priced too . Highly recommend you visit this charming place.

Here's the view from the church part way up...as well as the church itself. The city, fortress, and churches were built in the 12th century, and it is fascinating, and like nothing you'll see elsewhere.

We were picked by our driver Agi, who was arranged by our tour company 14You Travel, in a beautiful Mercedes Van. We were transported from our hotel to Montenegro. You need to make sure you have your passports and Euros before you leave Croatia. Agi, our driver knew of the less traveled border crossing and we crossed over to Montenegro... More
