Kotor is 2,000 years old, and has plenty of stories to tell - its ancient Roman beginnings; its Middle Age struggle of ownership between Goths, Saracens and Serbians; and its Venetian past. With a history like this, it’s no surprise Kotor has a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List. And what better way to explore this town than on a guided walking tour.

Kotor’s Old Town centre is still well preserved and the criss-crossed narrow streets and squares have monuments at every corner. From Prince’s Palace and Napoleon’s Theatre to the most recognisable symbol of the city - the Romanesque Cathedral of Saint Tryphon – you are sure to be mesmerised right from the start. The chunky walls that surround the old town are impressive to say the least - at some places they reach 20 metres (65 feet) in height and 16 metres (52 feet) in thickness.

Finally, enjoy some time at leisure to explore this town further; if you wish you can go in search of the Sveti Ivan Castle, where at the highest point you can enjoy spectacular views over the Bay of Kotor - so be sure to remember your camera.
