Once a small fisherman village, nowadays it is luxurious tourist resort. The island is connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus. On both sides of the mainland near the Island, beautiful sandy beach is spread. The island is private property so it can only be photographed from the shore line.
Our next stop is the ancient walled town of Budva, known for its sandy beaches and diverse nightlife. Budva is considered to be one of the oldest settlements on the Balkan Peninsula. The old town of Budva lies on a little island that was linked to the land by a sandbar and in time turned into a peninsula. It is surrounded by ramparts originating from the XV century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls and towers. Inside the walls the town is a combination of narrow streets and little squares with valuable monuments of different Mediterranean cultures. You will have the possibility to have traditional Montenegrin lunch here, the fish is a must try, as it is a specialty.
After lunch we drive to Kotor. Kotor’s Old Town is rich in history and one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in Adriatic. After a coffee stop at one of the old town squares you will go sightseeing of Kotor in the Bay of Kotor, a medieval town, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites – a tour of the Maritime Museum and St. Tripun’s Cathedral. After this full day Montenegro tour, we’ll return to Durres.
