  • I came to Kotor as part of a tour group from Dubrovnik, Croatia. The tour guide had plenty of knowledge about the city and the walls. His detailed description made it worth the trip.  more »
  • We loved the views from the church perched high up on the walls. The famous picture of the church looking over the bay of Kotor and the old town is approximately a 25-30 minute hike, medium level...  more »

  • Loved every inch of them... Generally, I adore watching old towns and their walls, they always tell stories, old and almost forgotten stories that spark up imagination! 😍😍😍😍❤❤❤❤
  • Had a lovely walk up to the fortress - it’s a great heart starter & earns your breakfast ! If you can go early (7am) or earlier you’ll have the place relatively to yourself. Take water (you can buy I the walk as well), wear runners & head up & up & up - something like 1350 steps. Gorgeous views of the roofs of the old town
