Meet your guide at a centrally-located point in Dubrovnik, then travel south through coastal mountains dotted with small, historic towns. Explore the city of Kotor on a walking tour led by a local guide, tracing a scenic route that includes the UNESCO-listed Cathedral of St. Triphon, where Corinthian columns support an intricate vaulted roof. Enjoy 1.5-hours of free time in Kotor, so you can keep discovering the city on your own, relax over a drink in an elegant café, or head to the water’s edge to soak up the sunshine.
Climb back into the hills for sweeping views of the Bay of Kotor, a deep inlet speckled with island churches and historic villages. Pause in the pretty village of Njeguši for a local food tasting—the products change with the season, but can include Montenegro’s distinctive honey wines and cheeses.
Make a final stop in Budva to visit the old town at the end of a slender peninsula, with views of picture-perfect sandy beaches, elegant yachts and villas, then make the return trip to Dubrovnik.
