Today your guide will meet you upon your arrival in Kotor. Start your visit with a visit to the Catholic Cathedral of St. Triphun and its ancient reliqueries. Continue to the Orthodox Church of St Luca as well as the Franciscan Church of St. Clare, with its baroque marble altar of Francescio Casabianca.
Exeter International Extraordinary Experience
Continue towards Njegusi – a typical Montenegrin village, where a special tasting of the local honey wine, accompanied by homemade cheese and prosciutto has been arranged for you.
Drive to Cetinje, and visit the Monastery of St. Peter. You may also visit King Nicola’s Museum. Nicola was Montenegro’s sole monarch.
Optional Active Excursion: Time and fitness permitting, consider climbing the 1,500 steps of Kotor’s old fortress walls on the hills above the town. Started in the early Middle Ages by the Byzantines after they expelled the Goths, they were later expanded by the Venetians. The city survived many attacks and was successively controlled by Bulgarians, Serbians, Venetians, Ottomans, and Austro-Hungarians. As this is completely independent, no extra guide services or costs are associated with this.
