Podgorica

One of Europe's most relaxed and newest capital cities, Podgorica sits on the confluence of two rivers, with two sides of it offering two different options for exploring.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Morača River and St. George's Church. Popular historic sites such as Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ and Dajbabe Monastery are in your itinerary. Explore Podgorica's surroundings by going to Biogradska Gora National Park (in Kolašin Municipality) and Morača Monastery (in Bare). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Skadar and take in the views from Ribnica Bridge (Most na Ribnici).

To see traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Podgorica tour itinerary tool.

Paris, France to Podgorica is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and ferry. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Ulcinj.

nights
Kotor

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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Miločer Park and Savina Monastery. Visit Our Lady of the Rocks and Citadel for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Kotor: Lipa Cave (in Lipa), Plavi Horizonti Beach (in Radovići) and Budva Old Town (in Budva). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Bay of Kotor, tour the water at your own pace with Miki Travel, and see the interesting displays at Cats Museum.
