Kotor has a relevant historical heritage: the urban center is located inside the city-walls, which represent a unique example of urban fortification, both from an esthetic point of view and a defense-related one. Proclaimed as UNESCO Human Heritage, the city of Kotor is a synthesis of historical, artistic and natural masterpieces, which, probably, have no rival on the same side of the Adriatic Sea.
Guided tour of Kotor Old Town – UNESCO World Heritage site. This walking tour of the Kotor’s old town is perfect if you only have a short time visiting from a cruise ship. The tour provides an excellent orientation in Kotor and visits St. Tryphoon Cathedral and the Maritime Museum. The Old town of Kotor is one of the best preserved medieval towns in this part of the Mediterranean. It has succeeded in preserving its original form, so typical of towns between the XII and the XIV century. The asymmetric structure of the narrow streets and squares, combined with the numerous valuable monuments of medieval architecture, contributed that Kotor is placed on UNESCO the world natural and cultural heritage lists. Our guided tour takes you through the warren of stone paved streets to visit the sunlit squares. Highlights of the tour include a visit to the Maritime museum and St. Tryphoon Cathedral. Visitors with more energy can take the optional path to climb up 260 meters to the top of the town’s fortifications. From San Giovanni castle at the highest point you can enjoy spectacular views of the Bay of Kotor and the town’s ancient streets which extend beneath you.
Information: Kotor Old Town is fairly shaded inside the town walls and involves mainly flat walking on ancient stone cobbled streets. If you wish to climb up to the fortress we recommend taking a sun hat, sun cream, bottled water and sturdy walking shoes (don’t forget your camera!).
