WHAT YOU VISIT
Kotor
A guided walking tour of this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site leads to landmarks such as the 850-year-old St. Tryphon Cathedral, atmospheric marketplaces, sunny cafes and grand palaces built by the mercantile families of the city's past – all surrounded by stunning views and overlooking the sparkling bay. Step inside the Maritime Museum and marvel at the extensive collection of naval artifacts, weaponry and ship models chronicling Kotor's glory days as one of the Adriatic's major naval forces. Housed inside the grand 17th century Grgurina Palace, the museum is truly a treasure to behold.

Perast
One of the most well-preserved baroque cities in Montenegro, Perast flourished during the 18th century, when it had four busy shipyards and a fleet of 100 ships. Once you arrive, you'll embark on a cruise across Boka Bay to Our Lady of the Rocks, a tiny man-made island that's famous for its baroque church, which houses a revered 15th century icon of Virgin Mary.
