Recommended 3 Day Montenegro Itinerary
Day 1 – Kotor, Perast, and Herceg Novi
If you’re not really familiar with Montenegro, the best way to introduce this country to you is by spending it in Kotor. With a lot of places to explore and things to do, Kotor will absolutely complete your Balkan trip. Museums, beaches, medieval places, name it and this town has it. When you’re in Kotor, then it is best to visit the Bay of Kotor. Never forget this place! The Bay of Kotor could be one of the most extremely gorgeous places on Earth. It only requires an easy car trip from Dubrovnik. Go here and spend a fabulous day sailing the bay, admire the scenery, and enjoy the moment. Kotor bay and its medieval town also look so picturesque when viewed from a distance. Just take note that it is best to avoid the peak season (summer) when going here to avoid the crowd.
