Dubrovnik Transportation: 122 reviews and 120 photos
The stunningly beautiful Bay of Kotor, across the border in Montenegro and just 80km south of Dubrovnik is, justifiably, a popular day trip from the city. Don't think you can do it by public transport though. There's only one bus a day in each direction. The bus from Dubrovnik leaves at 11am, the one from Kotor to Dubrovnik leaves at 1.15pm - so unless you're planning to stay the night, you simply cannot do it this way.
Yopur options are to either drive yourself, as we did, or take a tour. Atlas Tours in Dubrovnik offer a day trip for about US$60.
You can take a hire car into Montenegro without any extra formalities and this summer (2006) we found the border procedures very straightforward, simply showing our passports and hire car documents for a quick stamp and a wave through. No doubt the break with Serbia has had something to do with that! We took the narrow, twisting road all the way around the Bay to Kotor through Perast; the scenery is magnificent and on a Sunday in June, the road was all but deserted. Leaving the walls of Kotor behind us after our visit, we then continued on around the bay to Leperane where a car ferry operates around the clock to take you back to the northern side of the bay, which reduces the travelling time considerably and lets you see more of the bay at the same time rather than simply retracing your steps.
