We spend some time exploring the historic seaside town of Kotor; a walled village renowned for its villas, stoned crisscrossing streets, and imposing fortress. From here, our historian will discuss the importance of Kotor from its Venetian history until Montenegrin independence after the dissolution of Yugoslavia. After our time in Kotor, we'll stop for lunch at an authentic local restaurant, offering the chance to try some Montenegrin cuisine.
After lunch, we’ll drive around the bay to visit the idyllic seaside village of Perast. From Perast, we will take a local boat to tour the Our Lady of the Rocks monastery. The tiny inlet hosts the ancient monastery, offering a sweeping panorama of the Kotor Bay and its fjords in all their magnificence. At the end of our time, as we drive back to Dubrovnik, not only we will have traveled to a different country but will have also come to appreciate Montenegro’s unique history in the Balkan region.
