Private Tour 4 : Kotor – Budva
Your private guide will meet you at Kotor port holding a sign with your name on it at the pre-arranged time. After meeting with your professional guide, your journey will start with Budva, the most famous resort in Montenegro. Budva is considered to be one of the oldest settlements on the Balkan Peninsula. The old town of Budva lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time turned into a peninsula. It is surrounded by ramparts originating from the XV century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls and towers. Inside the walls the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with valuable monuments of different Mediterranean cultures.
Our next and last stop will be Kotor where we were met in the morning at port. We will start our Kotr tour with the bustling market and gaze upon graceful baroque buildings. Step inside Cathedral Saint Tryphon to marvel at its vaulted roofs, and see one of Kotor’s most valuable treasures: the silver gilded bas relief altar icon. Constructed in 1166 A.D., then reconstructed following several earthquakes, this cathedral holds a wooden crucifix from 1288 A.D. and golden works spanning from the 14th to the 20th centuries.
Visit the three-story Maritime Museum with its unique collection of historical seafaring objects. On display are photos and models of ships, old instruments, uniforms, and exquisitely decorated weapons. Conclude your tour with a walk along the water or spend some time sightseeing on your own.
Then, you will be taken to the port. End of our services.
