Your 4-hour adventure takes you to the most popular towns on Montenegro’s coastline, which are Kotor and Budva. The first stop is Kotor, one of the best-preserved medieval towns and a town that holds the most important position in Boka Bay. While on a walking tour through Kotor, you’ll get the opportunity to discover the rich history of the area while strolling through its streets and admiring the palaces that were home to the local aristocracy.
After learning about the life and the culture of the locals, your knowledgeable local guide will take you to another coastal town across the hills, Budva. On the way there, you’ll enjoy a relaxing ride with stunning views of the mountains and the sea.
Before visiting Budva, we’ll make a short photo stop at the most luxurious part of the Montenegrin coastline, the island of St. Stefan. It was built in the 15th century, and because of its position and fortifications, it was a great strategic and valuable place for many centuries. This small fishing village with rich culture was converted into a luxury resort in the 1960s.
After taking a short break and taking some beautiful photos, we will take you to the town of Budva. The walking tour of Budva will be insightful and relaxing. Because of its rich history, it’s one of the most famous towns in Montenegro. Budva is considered one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast, dating back over 2500 years.
However, history is not all we’re gonna uncover on this tour. During your free time, you will have the freedom to enjoy its beaches and typical Adriatic charm and maybe taste some local dishes or excellent wine and rakija.
This Kotor and Budva Tour is perfect if you want to learn a little bit about the rich history of Montenegro, as well as have some time to relax and enjoy beautiful sea views from Budva’s Riviera.
