Old Town of Kotor Walking Tour
US$ 23.15
Overview

Get to know the Old Town of Kotor on this walking tour. Learn about the walled city’s history, architecture, culture, and cuisine from your guide. Go on a short guided tour of St. Tryphon Cathedral. Visit landmarks that include the Square of Arms, the Clock Tower, Pima Palace and Buca Palace, the Northern Gate, and more.

What to Expect
Kotor is situated in the most secluded part of Boka Kotorska (The Bay of Kotor). While it dates from the Illyrian period, Kotor developed into an important commercial and artistic center in the Middle Ages. Many empires battled for control over the city throughout the centuries: from being an autonomous city of the Byzantine Empire, free city of medieval Serbia, then under Venetian or Hungarian states, gaining independence and then returned to Venetian control once again, just to be occupied by France and then Austria, until Kotor finally became part of Yugoslavia.

Kotor tour begins at the main gate of the Old Town, also known as the Sea Gate (Morska vrata), where you will meet our guide. The tour will take you inside the city gates, and you will visit:  
  • The Square of Arms
  • Clock Tower
  • Flour Square with Pima and Buca palaces
  • St Tryphon Cathedral with short guided tour of the Cathedral
  • The Bokelian Navy Square with Karampana
  • The St Luke Square with St Luke and St Nikola churches
  • St Mary of the River (The Blessed Ozana) 
  • Northern Gate with Skurda river
After the tour of the city you will return to the Square of Arms.
