KOTOR BOKA BAY TOUR WITH MH TRAVEL AGENCY
DAILY EXCURSION IN Montenegro...DEPARTURES FROM Kotor and Budva...HIGHLIGHTS: The Old town of Perast, island Lady of the Rocks, The Old Town of Herceg Novi, Porto Montenegro in Tivat...DURATION: 10 hours...TICKET PRICE €35.00 (from Kotor), €40.00 (from Budva)
Boka Kotorska (in Italian bocche meaning “mouth”) is a region surrounding one of the grandest natural features of east Adriatic-the Gulf of Kotor, a series of four bays penetrating 25 km of inland. The names of bays are Bay of Kotor, Bay of Risan, Bay of Herceg Novi, and Bay of Tivat. If you want to know the places, history, and natural beauty of this magnificent bay, we recommend this tour organized by MH Travel. We may say that this is one of the most wanted tours, especially as the private ones. When we started to make this excursion in 2011, we had a very ambitious itinerary to visit all the attractions in the Bay of Kotor, including the peninsula Lustica and Blue Cave. But, in the meantime, the construction of tourist complexes with very frequent road traffic congestion began to start on the Lustica peninsula, so the existing itinerary became unfortunately unsustainable. Then we created the new itinerary, which enables us to stay longer in the cities of Perast, Herceg Novi, and Tivat. This tour is very relaxed with an easy driving schedule with many breaks. Morning in Perast, early afternoon in Herceg Novi, and sunset in Porto Montenegro will leave you breathless. Welcome!
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
The tour starts at 8:00 am close to the old town of Budva. The next pick-up is in the city of Kotor close to the old town. From Budva to Kotor is only a 25 km distance. In the off-season, we need 25 minutes of the ride between the cities, but in very high season we need 45 minutes which is written in our itinerary. If guests take the private tour we will pick up them from their accommodations. Also, if guests stay in some accommodation close to our route (for example guests from Dobrota), we can pick them up on the main road. Pick-up location can be flexible sometimes if suits guest better than the standard one.
WHERE WE WILL GO?
We will go to Perast, Lady of the Rock, the city of Herceg Novi, and Porto Montenegro in the city of Tivat.
Perast is a beautiful small town of 220 inhabitants and belongs to the municipality of Kotor and has been a UNESCO World Heritage since 1979. In its impressive history, Perast was known as the center of the Boka Kotorska navy, which still exists in a symbolic way. Nowadays Perast is the tourist center of Boka Kotorska bay, which still preserved the dignity of a peaceful town where the spirit of the past truly felt and looks that the time stopped there.
Traffic in the city is closed in the summer that makes tourists can safely enjoy sightseeing. We will walk through the main street and see the St. Nicholas church with its belfry, the town square, the Maritime Museum, and the main street where traditional palaces and churches from the 16th-18th century still kept their authentic looks. Usually, we visit Lady of the Rocks first and then we walk around the city of Perast.
LADY OF THE ROCKS (GOSPA OD ŠKRPJELA)
Tourists are fascinated with the beauty of two small islands in front of the city. There is a church on each island. St. George's is closed to the public, while the man-made islet the Lady of The Rocks is open to visitors. We will go to the island by a short boat ride and where we will stay up to 40 minutes.
Works in Porto Montenegro began in 2006 and will be fully completed in the next five years. To date, numerous tourist buildings, apartments, the luxury hotel Regent, swimming pool-club, shops, restaurants, cafe bars, and the Maritime Museum with two submarines from the Yugoslav period have been built here. The prices of food and drinks in restaurants are affordable, so we can freely say that is an ideal place to end our tour. With a light dessert or a glass of good wine, you can enjoy the sunset in the beautifully decorated Porto where there are no traffic jams or tourist crowds.
