Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

This charming half-day excursion will delight guests who have a passion for food, but who also wish to learn more about the stunning Montenegrin Riviera.

Your day starts with a friendly introduction to your guide at Kotor port, before the picturesque drive to Lastva, along the Montenegrin Riviera.

Then it's on to Lastva, which nestles high in the hills above Kotor, and is famous for its delicious olive oil. Here, you will visit one of the village churches, plus a local farmhouse to learn the secrets of olive oil production.

You will then savor a tasty snack of sandwiches made with delicious locally-smoked ham and cheeses, accompanied by regional wines. During this unique refreshment break, you will also be treated to a performance of Montenegrin folk music, courtesy of the talented villagers.

Climbing back on to the bus you will wind your way down the hill and drive back to Kotor, where you will have the opportunity to walk around the medieval old town, while your guide points out the striking Baroque architecture.

Your tour continues with a visit to St. Tryphon's Cathedral, an ornate Romanesque and Byzantine building, that boasts an extensive collection of 14th-century Venetian art. This shrine to St Tryphon dates back to the 9th century, so prepare to be enthralled by its gilded altar and impressive frescoes.

End this enjoyable day at the town's Maritime Museum, a delightful tribute to the region's naval history. The museum is housed in the the 17th-century Grgurina Palace, and is home to a fine collection of naval artifacts, weaponry and ship models.
