Our tour includes a visit to the town of Kotor, an impressive walled city in a well preserved condition. Kotor proudly finds a place in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List and enjoys Venetian architectural style. First and Illirian settlement, it became a Roman city before it was ruled by the Byzantines and Serbians during the medieval times before it fell into the hands of the Venetian Republic and Austrians.
Among the places we see in Kotor are 12th Century St. Tryphon Cathedral, strong fortification walls that protected the city, Maritime Museum, Piazza of the Arms, Clock Tower, Church of St. Luca, Church of St Clare. There is a climb of 1500 steps to discover the Byzantine-Venetian fortifications. The reward is a magnificent view of the old town and the bay.

Piazza is situated in the middle of the island surrounded with pine trees. Here light organic food as fish, lamb, salads, anti-pastas, pastas and pizzas I offer. It is the place to be, to explore the atmosphere of the old fishermen’s village.
