Budva may be the brightest star of the constellation of coastal towns in small-yet-beautiful Montenegro. The town boasts an abundance of beaches, but it’s perhaps the charming Stari Grad (Old Town) that impresses travelers the most. As picturesque as 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 Montenegro’s other gems, which you’ll do on this extension. You’ll experience Cetinje — Montenegro's Old Royal capital, that once welcomed diplomats from all over Europe — as well as enjoy a photo stop above scenic Sveti Stefan, a picturesque islet that has welcomed foreign dignitaries and Hollywood celebrities alike. You’ll also visit Kotor, a postcard-perfect medieval town, part of the spectacular Bay of Kotor UNESCO World Heritage Site.
