Perast with Our Lady of the Rocks and Kotor Tour

4 Hours

Explore the best parts of the Bay of Kotor including two the richest cultural towns on the coast of Montenegro including Our Lady of the Rocks, Perast, and Kotor.

More than just a boat cruise with iconic photo opportunities, this tour offers deep historical and cultural insights to the region.

The tour begins in Perast, a historic sailors’ town with narrow streets and Baroque palaces. Explore the famous stone houses and captains’ mansions, which stand testament to the wealth and power that Perast held.

Enjoy a short boat ride from Perast to Our Lady of the Rocks, a manmade island built in the 15th century. Legend has it that two brothers from Perast discovered a painting of Our Lady. Locals piled rocks around the sacred site and built a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God. This tour will take you inside the island’s church and museum. You will also learn about Fasinada, the annual custom of sinking rocks that expands the island each year.

After experiencing the Bay of Kotor from the water, you will have the opportunity to see it from other vantage points. Circle the Bay by car and stop at Trojica Hill for stunning views and photo opportunities. It is also possible to take a short stop at Risan, home to 2nd-century mosaics from the Roman period.

The tour finishes with a guided walking tour of Kotor. The Old Town of Kotor is a well-preserved UNESCO World Heritage site and a jewel of Montenegro. The town was originally built during the Byzantine era. Much of Kotor’s history remains visible in the town’s Medieval, Renaissance, Gothic, and Venetian architecture.
