Absolutely stunning scenery. The little medieval town is charming and good for aimlessly walking around, shopping, eating. We hiked up 4,000 feet above town to the Kotor Fortress for the most unbelievable views I’ve ever seen. I’m glad we did it first thing in the morning before it got too hot. It wasn’t too difficult but not a beginners walk either. The town itself is a short 100 yard walk from the cruise dock, the locals were friendly and English-speaking. The cruise in/out of Kotor Bay is so worth waking up early for and/or staying out on the pool deck after to enjoy the views.

You must, must must watch the ship sail in to this port, stunning. The tender process for us was quick, the town it's self is old with little churches, usual tourist type shops. Enjoy the culture

My table mates and I shared a cab tour that was available off ship. The driver took us to a scenic outlook that gave us a spectacular view. When then went on a scenic drive to Persat. Our driver stopped there and offered us a trip on a boat (5 euros each) to the lady of the rock island. We went and loved it! The ride was smooth and the church a neat little place. We then had time on our own and we explored the small town. After he took us back to the port. We then went into Kotor via the North Sea gate. We walked along the little streets and ended up at this cafe across from the Nautical Museum. The cafe had the most delicious hand made freshly baked bread which we paired with mozzarella and tomatoes with oil. For a quirky stop we went to the cat museum (1 euro) and Georgia bought a wonderful little bag at a nearby store. (Side note: most places only took cash) After a great day in port I went on deck to watch us sail away. The view is not to be missed especially as the sun begins to set.

Absolutely loved this port. Everything is within walking distance so no need for an excursion. I can recommend doing the steps up to the old church. Burns off a lot of calories and shakes off the hangover from the night before lol
