TOUR DESCRIPTION
 

Kotor Shore Excursion

This six-hour Kotor shore excursion is designed to see the maximum when you do not have a full day available. You explore the old town of Kotor, take boat to visit the island of Our Lady of the Rocks and then enjoy a stop in the resort village of Budva.

After meeting your tour guide at the pier in Kotor you enjoy a walking tour walk through the maze of medieval Kotor, its bustling market and among beautiful Renaissance buildings. The well preserved fortified walls of Kotor are nearly 3 miles long and it is considered one of the world's historic values.

Your tour includes a visit to the Cathedral of St. Tryphon which was constructed in 1166 and built on the remains of a former temple from the 9th century. You will see the remains from 14th century frescoes and the valuable treasury with both local and Venetian golden works dating from the 14th to the 20th centuries.

Next you enjoy a cruise to the island of Our Lady of the Rocks. According to legend, the small man-made island was made over the centuries by the seamen who kept an ancient oath which says that after returning from each successful voyage, they laid a rock in the bay. Over time, the small island gradually emerged from the sea. You will visit the small Byzantine style church which was built in 1667. The interior of the church was decorated by Tripo Kokolja, a famous 17th-century painter from village of Perast. Your guide will point out the famous icon of Our Lady of the Rocks on the altar.

This afternoon you drive to the ancient town of Budva which is the most famous resort in Montenegro. Budva is considered to be one of the oldest settlements on the Balkan Peninsula. The old town of Budva also lies on a small island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time it turned into a peninsula. The old town is surrounded by ramparts originating from the 15th century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls and towers. Within the walls the town is a combination of small narrow roads and little squares with valuable monuments of different Mediterranean cultures.

Assuming everything is on schedule, there is some free time in Budva before you drive back to the pier in Kotor.
