After meeting your guide at the pier, you walk to the Kotor old town where you guided tour will start. Visit to the old town of Kotor, which is, like Bay, listed as World Heritage and is protected by UNESCO.
After Kotor, your tour will proceed to Risan, the oldest city in our region, with the mosaics of the Roman god Hypnos, dating from the second century of our era.
Tour continues to Perast. After your walk in Perast you sail to the island of Gospa od Skrpjela (Our Lady of the Rocks). This man-made Island was built by scuttling old ships and depositing stones around a small crag. According to legend, the islet was made over the centuries by the seamen who kept an ancient oath. Upon returning from each successful voyage, they laid a rock in the bay. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. You will visit the church which was built in 1667. It is a single-nave, modestly proportioned church in the Byzantine style. The interior of the church was decorated by Tripo Kokolja, a famous 17th-century painter from Perast. On the altar is the famous icon of Our Lady of the Rock.
Before returning to Kotor, you will also visit Old Town of Budva - most famous resort in Montenegro and Sveti Stefan. 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.
