You can't go to Kotor and not climb the city walls to the fortress. It may be 1000+ steps, but it's well worth it for the amazing views and historical feelings. There are lots of hidden nooks and crannies to explore as well. At one...More

It takes 30-40 min to go up the 265 meter high wall to the highest point. But it well worth going in the morning. You will have some very beautiful pictures, especially if you go up in a beautiful day.

The cruise ship stopping here was worth the whole cruise. While these cities in Europe all seem the same we were impressed with the little street and shops.

We had a wonderful visit to Kotor. Several churches, mostly Catholic, and all are beautiful to see and wonder through. The Cathedral is beautiful and has a wonderful display of Relics on the upper floor. Very interesting!

One of the reasons for returning to Kotor was the wall. This time we stayed longer so we could spend more time exploring the wall along with the city. If you have the chance go up as far as you are able. Great photos all...More

I think you may have asked this in the wrong place. If you want to ask a specific reviewer a question it's best to message them direct by clicking on their profile. Whoever Kev is he is unlikely to see it here.
