Full description

Visit Kotor bay in Montenegro, one of the most scenic and picturesque places on the Adriatic Sea. It is also the biggest bay on the Adriatic, and because of its strategic importance in this turbulent region, it has been under rule by different nations. 

Each of them left a mark that can be seen today through a beautiful blend of architectural influences. Romans, Turks, Venetians, Austrians - each nation left a mark on this region and its cities.

After your departure from Dubrovnik and a scenic drive through Konavle valley, enter Montenegro where you make a short stop at Verige to take photos of the beautiful landscape just before entering Kotor bay. 

Continue your drive along the coast through Risan and Perast, to reach Kotor. Often called the best preserved and prettiest town in Montenegro, this UNESCO-listed fortified city is famous for its city walls, a display of Venetian-inspired architecture, beautiful churches, and rich history.

Whether it was independent, or as a part of the Byzantine Empire, Serbian kingdom, or Venetian republic, Perast may be one of the most historically intriguing places in Boka Kotorska. Baroque, renaissance palaces and narrow streets in Perast will take you back to a time of luxury and wealth.

In Perast, you have the opportunity to take a boat ride and visit Our Lady of the Rocks island. The legend says that in 1452 two brothers found Mary’s picture on a rock in the sea. This led to a miraculous healing of one of the brothers.

Ever since locals have been bringing rocks and sinking ships next to this rock. An island was formed and first, a chapel was built, then a church in its place. Some call it the Croatian Sistine chapel because of the artwork that enriches its walls.

We had a fantastic day. The guide, gabriel had lots of facts and jokes. We had a guided tour round Kotor then a couple of hours free time. We then went to Perast where we did the boat trip to Our lady of the rock. The minibus was very clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend this trip

Great day with a great guide. I highly recommend. However, you have to plan something to do in the minibus with a book or other because there is a good chance of being stuck for hours at the border on the way back (2h30 for us). But otherwise we learned a lot of things and we were in a small group of 15 people. Thank you Gabriel!

We really liked the excursion. It included a guided tour of Kotor for about an hour and then two hours of free time spent walking and eating. Then they took us by boat to the Island of the Virgin of the Rocks where we stayed for half an hour. Finally we had two hours of free time in Perast, we took the opportunity to swim as it was quite hot. The beaches are pebbly so we recommend proper footwear. To get there and back we had to cross the border, on the way back we were waiting approximately 45 minutes to enter the EU, but it seems that this is normal.
