SHORE EXCURSIONIN MONTENEGRO...DEPARTURE FROM KOTOR...HIGHLIGHTS: OLD TOWN OF KOTOR, PERAST, AND LADY OF THE ROCK ...DURATION: 3 hours...TICKET PRICE€40.00 (The price includes a speed boat ride to Perast and Lady of the Rocks)
We created this shore tour for the cruise guests who have only a few hours to explore Kotor and Perast, which are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage site. Kotor with its more than two millennia impressive history is located in the incredibly beautiful Bay of Boka as one the most popular tourist destination in the world. The old town of Kotor is located hidden in Kotor 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 atmosphere of its old town, which is quite small but is packed with picturesque squares, old palaces, drinking fountains, churches, secret gates and passages, and numerous symbols and decorations on almost every wall in the town, which was left by its citizens through centuries. Only 10 km far away from it, in the middle of the Bay of Kotor, is settled a small town Perast with its two islands St. George and Lady of the Rocks, with small churches on them. On our tour, we will explore Kotor and its city walls, then we will go by speed boat to Perast and Lady of the Rock, and back to the port. 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, Perast, and Lady of the Rock.
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 visit to the old town of Kotor guests will go to Perast and Lady of the Rock by speed boat. This is the only way to avoid traffic jams, especially in the summer. A relaxing speed boat ride to Perast will be memorable and guests will be there in 15 minutes. This part of the tour is not guided.

When arrive guests will have 30 minutes walk around the town, where they can explore its main attractions: St. Nicholas church with its belfry, the town square, the Maritime Museum, as well as many traditional palaces and churches built in the 16th and 17th century that still keep authentic looks.
Although Perast is the tourist center of Boka Kotorska, it still preserves the dignity of a peaceful town in which the spirit of past times truly feels. Spared from modern buildings, cozy-luxury shops, fast food restaurants, souvenir shops, and everything else that accompanies modern life and tourism, Perast looks like time stopped into it. The traffic in the city is closed in the summer months so tourists can safely walk around and sightseeing in the town. Perast is a part of the municipality of Kotor and has been protected by UNESCO since 1979. It is a small place with one main street by the sea and 2 small islets in front with churches on them. The island's names are St George and Our Lady of the Rocks, which is why Perast is mostly known in the tourist world.
Island St. George is a natural rocky islet with the Benedictine abbey from the 12th of century, a graveyard with cypresses, and St. George church from the 17th of century. The islet is closed to the public except for some rare events, while the next islet Our Lady of the Rocks islet is open to visitors. Guests will get a boat ride to get the island, where will have 45 minutes of sightseeing. The small baroque church from the 17th century with a bronze roof painted in light blue it is just as attractive on the outside as it is on the inside.
The interior of the church is lovely decorated with paintings made by the talented local painter Tripo Kokolja and the ceiling is the most fascinating. Guests can also see numerous small silver plates with reliefs on the exhibit on the church's walls. These were consecration gifts to Our Lady of the Rock, for the protection of life, health, and family of believing people. The church has a small museum with a collection of stone inscriptions from the Roman era, parts of ships and navigation instruments, utensils, swords, clocks, weapons, old furniture, handicrafts to modern paintings.
