Kotor: Fortifications of Kotor Group or Private Hiking Tour

1. Kotor: Fortifications of Kotor Group or Private Hiking Tour

The Old Town of Kotor is well-sheltered from the open sea, situated at the end of the Kotor Bay, encased by formidable mountains – Mt. Lovćen and Vrmac hill. Strategically, it has proven to be an ideal position for safety in times of war, exemplified by the relative security the town has enjoyed given the turbulent history of the region. The Walls of Kotor, built between the 9th and 19th centuries on St. John’s hill, secured Kotor from enemies for more than 1.000 years. To conquer the walls and fortress of the Kotor Old Town we follow the Old Path up the mountain. In the past, it was the main caravan road connecting Kotor with the rest of Montenegro. This spectacular serpentine road leads us to a small old village called Špiljari. This is where the only family remaining in the village lives. The perfect spot to get some rest and try some unique homemade products while enjoying breathtaking views! After the break, we’ll explore the remains of old houses and the abandoned church of St. John. For those courageous enough, you can experience the nearby cave path that exits on a cliff outside the city walls. Finally, we will leave the ruins and proceed through a concealed passage to enter the fortress of San Giovanni at a 260-meter elevation above the sea. On the return, we descend 1.350 stairs, enjoy the spectacular landscape, 14th century Church of Our Lady of Remedy, and take (plenty of) opportunities for memorable photos.

We had a full day private tour with Peter our driver and guide. Peter was very knowledgeable on the area and was also able to choose smaller roads for the border crossing this resulted in no long wait !! This is a long day so doing the private tour was a great option , beautiful scenery and visiting the old town of Kotor is interesting. Unfortunately there was 2 Cruise ships in harbour on the day we were there so it was very crowded in The Old Town, which is only small. We had a little side trip at the end , as we had time, Peter drive us up to the lookout in Dubrovnik (where the cable car goes) and it was a real treat! Great day out

Adam, our driver was exceptional. I think he’s a certified genius. His knowledge of history was extraordinary and he had a great sense of humor. This was an excellent private tour for 8. I would heartily recommend to anyone who desires a day trip to Montenegro.

Beautiful places worth seeing, we are delighted with Montenegro. We recommend the company organizing the trip, our favorite guide - Adam.
