A morning cruise around the fjords

On days when the summer breeze is spilling floral scents down the mountain, there is no better way to embrace Kotor than taking a spin on the southern fjords. If your superyacht has a jet ski you can spend the morning cruising around the sparkling teal blue waters, blitzing down the river canyons and moving around the brilliant golden coastline.

Lunch at the market

Fresh markets are an essential part of daily life on the shores of Kotor. Fill your bags at the rickety old market stalls with luscious globe sized strawberries, elegant dried figs, olives straight from the vine, plump beading tomatoes, local wheels of cheese and hand baked tear to share bread.

An afternoon stroll in the Old Town

The old town of Kotor is a precious heritage site bursting at the seams with narrow winding alleys, cobbled steep steps, charming old churches and brightly lit windows peering down into shady courtyards. The tiny town doesn’t take long to explore but will linger in your memory for a long time. A blossoming music scene seems to be gracing the evocative café culture of Kotor and sipping a chilled glass of wine to the rising crescendo of a jazz pianist is perfect to break up that early afternoon stroll.

Splendid palaces and fabulous frescoes

See the more decadent side of Kotor with a visit to the 17th century Pima Palace. Romantic renaissance with iron wrought balconies, fading shutters and hidden stairwells will evoke images of princes and princesses wrapped up in timeless love stories. The 900-year-old Cathedral of Saint Tryphon is also worth ducking into to embrace the cool ambience, touch the carved pink pillars of stone and admire the beautifully crafted frescoes.
