8 Day Montenegro Highlights
Perched on the edge of the Adriatic and backed by stunning limestone mountains, Montenegro is perhaps the most beautiful place in Europe that nobody knows. But you can change that. Join us on this enchanting journey through the Balkans’ best-kept secret and discover the delights of seaside Kotor, Podgorica’s Roman ruins, the carved monastery of Ostrog, and much more. Montenegro may be underexplored now, but not for long. Get there first.
We begin in the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, justifiably nicknamed "the Pearl of the Adriatic." Get the lay of the land on a privately guided half-day walking tour that introduces you to this charming port city’s attractions, including the fashionable boutiques of Stradun, the domed St. Blaise Church, and the regal Rector’s Palace. Stopping in at the old Montenegrin town of Perast along the way, your next stop is Kotor, where you’ll take a guided tour of this beautiful seaside town and its many traces of Roman, Venetian, and even French influence before learning about the region’s rich nautical tradition on a tour of the Maritime Museum before spending a day to get to know the town on your own. Later, explore Cetinje, Montenegro’s historical capital, via private tours of its museums and 18th-century monastery before heading up into the Lovcen foothills to the village of Njeguši for a traditional meal. Finally, the scene shifts to Podgorica, the current capital, where you’ll be led by a local guide on a tour of the city’s Turkish clock tower, mosques, and the nearby Roman ruins of Duklja before embarking on a private full-day tour of the UNESCO-protected Tara River canyon (one of Europe’s deepest) and the clifftop Ostrog Monastery, one of the most visited sites in all of Christendom.
