Budva, Montenegro

Extension Image


Of the constellation of coastal towns in small-yet-beautiful Montenegro, Budva may very well be the brightest star. The town boasts an abundance of beaches, but it is perhaps the charming Stari Grad (Old Town) that impresses travelers most. As picturesque as it is historic, this part of Budva features a timeworn citadel as well as a quaint cluster of churches. The Old Town is adjacent to the marina, where jet-set yachters dock their ships to enjoy the upscale boutiques and eateries in town.

Budva also serves as an excellent base from which to explore some of Montenegro’s other gems, which you’ll do on this extension. You’ll experience Cetinje – a city that once welcomed diplomats from all over Europe – as well as Sveti Stefan, a picturesque islet that has welcomed foreign dignitaries and Hollywood celebrities alike. You’ll also visit Kotor, a postcard-perfect medieval town tucked away in one of Europe’s most beautiful bays.

Your Price Includes:
  • 2 nights accommodations at the Hotel Budva (or similar)
  • 4 meals: 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner
  • Tour of Budva, Cetinje, and Sveti Stefan
  • Tour of Kotor
  • All transfers and baggage handling (where permitted)
  • Services of a City Host and regional experts

DAY 15: Dubrovnik, Croatia / Budva, Montenegro

Heading into Montenegro, you’ll follow the winding Bay of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its narrow profile and steep walls, it’s often called Europe’s southernmost fjord. Technically, however, the bay is not a true, glacier-carved fjord, but rather is a ria, or submerged river valley. Tucked away at the head of the bay is Kotor, a fortified medieval. Here you’ll learn the history of the town — which is believed to stretch back as far as the first century — while you walk the charming tangle of Old World streets. The views are sure to take your breath away. Arriving in Budva, check into your hotel, which is perfectly situated along the Adriatic Sea. Dinner is included in a local restaurant this evening

 Included meals: dinner

DAY 16: Budva

Today, enjoy a tour of this diminutive-yet-divine Balkan nation. In addition to exploring the quaint streets of Budva’s Old Town, you’ll venture to some of the country’s other gems.

 Included meals: breakfast & lunch

After breakfast, transfer to the airport in Budva for your flight home.
