Kotor’s Old Town Walls and Fortress Hike
Azamara Journey in Kotor
Places of interest when calling on Kotor, Montenegro include many attractions like the Old Town Walls that cruise visitors can climb for a nominal fee. When we visited on Azamara Journey, Hotel Director Heike and Cruise Director Eric invited interested guests on a hike up to the top of the fortress.
When Sophia and I set out to tour Kotor, Montenegro the last thing on my mind was walking to the top of the hill to see the town from a different perspective. Little did I know that late in the afternoon we would be spending some cash on an entrance ticket to pay for what was both a pleasurable experience (I only thought that when I got back down) and total torture (it’s an elevation of 830 feet above sea level).
Climbing the stairs (the path is nicely maintained) up to the St. John’s fortress is a perfect hike for those looking for amazing view and vistas of the Old Town of Kotor, Montenegro.
