Our small river-style cruise boat slowly sailed up the fjord-like bay from the Adriatic all the way to Kotor. The vistas were stunning and the mountains on either side spectacular: Norway without the cold!

Coming in by ship you can see some amazing things. We had fog on the water as we headed to Kotor. The steep mountains just dropped into the waters edge. Just amazing

Spas, thermal springs - not just Ischia... (0 Replies)
The island of Ischia has long been famous amongst Italians for its thermal spas, however there are many others scattered around the Bay of Naples. Several of them are within much easier reach of Sorrento - even more so once the daily Alilauro hydrofoil connection ends, usually sometime in early November! Whether you're thinking of coming here, or perhaps fancy somewhere a little closer to where you're staying, this may be of interest: tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g580214-i10609-k… ...More

Kotor is small. Almost all of those items you have listed are buildings within the Old Town, which you can walk around easily within 90 minutes. The only thing that takes any time is the walk up the steeps to the fortress, this will take you about 40 minutes each way. You don't need transport for any of them as they are all within a quarter mile of one another.

Boating in Bay of Kotor (0 Replies)
My husband and I were in Montenegro September 2014. Arrived on a cruise ship. We were looking diligently for someone to take us out in a smaller boat into the Bay of Kotor for an afternoon cruise. Through the recommendation of a taxi driver, who I had found through these forums, we were put in touch with Ivan Krivokapic. Ivan works with the local tourist office and has a motor boat. We spent the afternoon on the bay with Ivan and his wife Ivana and I say without reservation that it was a...More
