A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the old town of Kotor blends history with jaw-dropping beauty. Guided walks through its intimate streets bring you to landmarks like St. Tryphon Cathedral, built in 1166, and the Maritime Museum, which chronicles Montenegro’s rich seafaring heritage. The city is surrounded by fortress walls, and a roughly 90-minute round-trip trek to St. Ivan’s Castle at the top affords views of the Bay of Kotor. This dazzling body of water can be explored on kayaking expeditions and boat rides to Our Lady of the Rocks, a manmade island that’s home to a church and museum. An excursion to a family-run farm teaches you about olive oil production as you indulge on prosciutto, cheeses and wine. Neighboring areas worth visiting include Jaz Beach; Budva, one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast; and the Lustica Peninsula, where you can discover the luminous setting of the Blue Grotto cave.
