Tour of Kotor
Often called the best preserved and prettiest town in Montenegro, this UNESCO-listed fortified city if famous for its city walls, a display of Venetian-inspired architecture, beautiful churches, and rich history of maritime trade and shipping. A two-hour stop in Kotor includes a guided tour of the city and some leisure time before departing to Perast.
Whether it was independent, or as a part of Byzantine Empire, Serbian kingdom or the Venetian Republic Perast may be one of the most historically intriguing places in Boka Kotorska. Its peak was under Venetian rule when it had four active shipyards and a fleet of a hundred ships. Baroque, Renaissance palaces and narrow streets in Perast will take you back to a time when the city’s residents lived in luxury and wealth.
Our Lady of the Rocks
While in Perast, you have the opportunity to take a boat and visit Our Lady of the Rocks. The legend says that in 1452 two brothers found Mary’s picture on a stone in the sea leading to a miraculous healing of one of the brothers. Locals have been bringing rocks and sinking ships in this place ever since. Eventually, an island was formed and first a chapel was built, then a church in its place. Some call it the Croatian Sistine chapel because of the artwork that enriches its walls.
