Meet your guide and driver at the hotel lobby for a private tour of Budva and Kotor – the jewels of Montenegro.
Budva is considered to be one of the oldest settlements in the Balkans. This ancient town lies on a little island that was linked to land by a sandbar and in time became a peninsula. Your guide will take you for a walk around the 15th century ramparts and medieval fortifications. Inside the walls, you will find the town to be a combination of narrow streets and little squares, with superb monuments of the different Mediterranean cultures.
Following your visit to Budva, your guide and driver will take you to 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. Your guide will take you to the Cathedral of St. Trifun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the town. Nestled in the intricate network of cobblestone streets and squares, lies the Maritime Museum, the custodian of Boka navy fame. Here, among other things, you 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.
After the tour your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
