"Coming from Croatia" Kotor Transportation Tip by TheWanderingCamel
Kotor Transportation: 40 reviews and 38 photos
Kotor is a popular day trip from Dubrovnik. If driving yourself isn't an option, there are day tours available - a long day but still quite do- able. Using public transport will require a night's stopover as the bus timetables between the two cities do not allow enough time to make the trip and see the sights on the same day as 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.
Our hire car arrangement allowed us entry to Montenegro without any additional paperwork, insurance, etc - all we needed was the Croatian hire car documents and our passports. The border crossing took just a few minutes, coming and going, on both sides. As we crossed into Montenegro we were greeted by a local tourist officer who presented us with an excellent English-language guidebook and waved us on our way with a smile.
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. We were able to find parking right outside the main gate though I would imagine that may not be quite so simple later in the season! There are other carparks dotted around outside the walls however.
