Day 1 – Arrive at Dubrovnik Airport – Private transfer to Kotor

 

You will be met at Dubrovnik airport with a private transfer over the Croatian border into one of the most picturesque countries in Europe.

Popular among tourists in the 60s and 70s, the country became known as the “St Tropez of the Adriatic” for its pristine beaches and glamour. You will drive alongside the Kotor Bay which is Europe’s most southern Fjord.  The intimate Boutique Hotel Forza Mare is ideally located in Dobrata, close to Kotor with a private beach and luxury spa and is in a perfect position to explore the charming town of Kotor.

The atmospheric, walled city of Kotor was built between the 12th and 14th centuries. It is a medieval maze of winding streets and squares, fascinating  museums, Romanesque churches, the dazzling cathedral and Venetian palaces and pillories. Further around the bay, the baroque town of Perast is the site of a famous victory against the Ottomans. Take a private boat tour from Perast towards the charming island, ‘Lady of the Rocks’ and explore the 17th-century church.  Take in the glorious views of Boka Bay before taking a refreshing dip whilst marvelling at the dazzling ‘Blue Cave.’
