Highlights of Montenegro with Lunch at Regent Porto - Kotor - 2018 ( 6 Hours )
Kotor, Montenegro | 08 Oct 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Located along one of Montenegro's most beautiful bays is Kotor, a city of traders and famous sailors with many stories to tell. The Old City of Kotor is a well-preserved urbanization typical of the middle Ages, built between the 12th and 14th century. Medieval architecture and numerous monuments of cultural heritage have made Kotor a UNESCO listed “World Natural and Historical Heritage Site".

Our day begins with a private walking tour of Kotor - home-town of the famous sailors and traders of Boka Bay. Kotor’s architecture, a post-modern mix of the various epochs and its position at the bottom of the sharp cliffs of the Lovcen Mountain, makes it different from any other Mediterranean town. The Old City is a well-preserved urbanization typical of the Middle Ages, built between the 12th and 14th century. We will visit the Cathedral of St. Trifun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the town. Then we will discover the Maritime Museum, the custodian of Boka navy fame. Here, among other things, one can admire portraits of the famous captains, models of old galleys and sail boats and other very valuable exponents of the rich heritage of Kotor.

We will be treated to an exclusive guided tour with the museum’s curator. On the private baroque terrace and with a glass of wine, we will listen to the curator’s stories about the successes of the famous Kotor sailors, ship builders and crafts man and the long gone glorious days.

We will then continue the drive along the coast towards the sleepy town of Perast, where the strong navy tradition formed a charming baroque entity. The town’s most graceful buildings date from the 17th and 18th century when the captains were building their beautiful villas. We will take a boat ride to the artificial island of Our Lady of the Rock, one of two picturesque islets in the bay. Listen to the local legends about its creating and admire the views around you.

Following our visit to Perast, we will drive to Porto Montenegro where we will enjoy a delicious lunch in the Dining Room of Regent Porto Montenegro Hotel. This restaurant takes delight in creating simple yet elegant gastronomic experiences, with a focus on using fresh locally sourced ingredients and keeping flavors natural and organic.

After lunch our guide and driver will take us back to the pier.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual with comfortable walking shoes. There will be moderate to heavy walking up and down steps, cobblestones and inclines.
