Kotor

— 6 nights

Bride of the Adriatic Sea

Perched on the edge of a fjord-like bay rimmed by rugged mountains, Kotor grew around a medieval settlement purposely built like a maze.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Our Lady of the Rocks and Church of St. Eustachius. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Miločer Park and Church of Blažena Ozana. Change things up with these side-trips from Kotor: Lovćen National Park (in Cetinje), Bečići Beach (in Bečići) and Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovići). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Zmajević Palace, contemplate the long history of Grubonja Palace, don't miss a visit to Kotor City Walls & Fortress, and kick back and relax at Kalardovo Beach.
