DAILY SHORE EXCURSION IN MONTENEGRO...DEPARTURE FROM KOTOR...HIGHLIGHTS: THE OLD TOWN OF KOTOR, CABLE CAR TO LOVCEN, AND THE OLD TOWN OF BUDVA ...DURATION: 5 HOURS...TICKET PRICE €40.00
We created this shore tour as one of the most popular choices for cruise-ship guests who stay in the port in Kotor longer than 5 hours. Kotor is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage, while Budva with its charming old town is the most popular tourist destination in Montenegro. Between 2 cities is a very short distance of 25 km. On our way from Kotor to Budva one can see the cable car, which goes to the viewpoint of Mt. Lovcen at 1350 meters altitude. Taking the cable car is optional, and it is not guided. The Old Town of Budva is surrounded by beaches, and in front of the town is the island of St. Nicola, the biggest island in Montenegro. The tour guides will give guests full experiences of both places and their highlights. Welcome:)
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
The tour starts from the port of Kotor after guests pass border control. Departure time depends on the docking time of the cruise ship. We organize the tours for the guests from the cruise ship, which will arrive in the Port of Kotor from 8:00 up to 10:00. Guests just need to inform us of which cruise ship they will come and the tour will start according to guests arrival time.
NOTE: The temperature in the summer season can be very high, above 40 degrees, so pay attention to protect your body with adequate clothes, skin with sun cream, and head with a hat. Always have enough water.
WHERE WE WILL GO?
We will go to The Old Town of Kotor, cable car from Kotor to Mt. Lovcen, and The Old Town of Budva
After passing the border control, guests will go down to the elevator and go up in front of the old town of Kotor. The distance is only 100 meters. The tour guide will wait for the guests and then they will have a one-hour city tour and get information about the town's rich history and its squares, streets, churches, historical buildings, and gates like Square of Arms, Bizanti Palace, Beskuca Palace, Pima Palace, St Tryphon Cathedral, Maritime Museum, St Nicholas Church, Blessed Osanna Church, the Sea Gate, and the North Gate.
Kotor old town has been on the list of UNESCO World Heritage since 1979 mostly thanks to its impressive city walls St. Giovanni. The city walls and fortifications were built above the old town of Kotor on the rocky slopes of the Lovcen mountain from the 9th to the 19th of century. To reach the top guests need to climb almost 1500 steps, (45 minutes of intense climbing) which is not easy during the summer heat. Most guests climb up to the small chapel of St. Giovanni where they can take impressively beautiful photos of the Kotor panorama.
After the city tour, the Kotor guide will lead the guests to the vehicle, after which they will head towards the cable car, and Budva via the Trojica mountain pass. The next guide is waiting for them in Budva.
CABLE CAR FROM KOTOR TO MT.LOVCEN
Trojica Pass is a scenery road where we will make the photo stop above the Bay of Kotor. The old town of Kotor is located hidden at the end of Boka Bay surrounded by two mountains Lovcen and Vrmac, which give it exceptional uniqueness. Everyone who visits Kotor is left breathless due to the beauty and splendid surroundings of this city. After 10 minutes of the photo stop, we will descend a few kilometers to the cable car. The route of the cable car starts from the locality of Dub, in the municipality of Kotor, in the immediate vicinity of the entrance to the road tunnel that connects Kotor with Tivat. The route leads to the locality of Kuk on the Lovćen mountain.
The location of Dub terminal is located within Grbaljsko polje, 200 meters from the Budva and Tivat road and 500 meters from Tivat airport. The location of the Kuk terminal is on the Kuk plateau on the Lovćen mountain, at 1,348 meters above sea level. The height difference between the starting and ending stations will be 1316 meters. The cable car is about 4 km long. Its capacity is 1,000 passengers per hour. The cable car is served by 40 gondolas. Travel time from Dub station to Kuk station is 10 minutes.
Guests can take a cable car ride if they wish. The driver will wait for them during the ride in both directions and with a photo stop at the top of the mountain, which is approximately 45 minutes, after which the guests continue the short journey to the old town of Budva, where the guide will wait.
In the last 15 years, Budva has experienced a construction expansion, unlike Kotor, and has many modern hotels and residential buildings. The municipality of Budva has over 40 beaches, which is why summer vacations here are very popular. The Old Town of Budva is smaller than that of Kotor, but it is very beautiful and is surrounded by beaches, which gives it a special uniqueness.
Guests will get a guided tour of the old town and learn about its impressive history from ancient times to the present day. The old town of Budva was founded 2500 years ago. In front of the city walls, there is the town square and two beaches to the south and west side. St John’s Cathedral is the highest building in the old town among numerous traditional stone houses and the Citadel viewpoint.
The town has a special atmosphere that is always a little glamorous. Budva is the fastest developing town on the coast, with a special blend of modern and traditional tourism. It is also the center of fun and great nightlife. After the city tour, guests will be driven to the port of Kotor.
