What to Expect
This tour involves two of the richest cultural places on the Montenegrin coast – Perast and Kotor. Starting point is Kotor from where you are heading to small man-made island near Perast, Our Lady of the Rocks.
First you arrive in town of Perast, from where you’ll take a boat ride to most famous island in Montenegro – Our Lady of the Rocks.
According to legend, the islet was made over the centuries by local seamen who kept an ancient oath after finding the icon of Madonna and the Child on the rock in the sea on July 22, 1452. Upon returning from each successful voyage, they laid a rock in the Bay. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. Here you will get chance to visit Lady of Rock church and museum.
After quick visit to Our Lady of the Rocks church and museum you are heading again to Perast where you can have some free time to enjoy in charming atmosphere of the quietest town in all Boka.
Then you will proceed back to Kotor, where will you get opportunity to discover tremendously rich history of town through walking tour. Every single piece of this town is hiding story on its own written by Venetians, Christians and Ottomans.
