In the beautiful countryside, near the flows of Ljuta River, you will discover an old water mill. Here you will see a small presentation of the old way of making the flour and bread. The mill owner will prepare a small treat for you: dried figs and travarica, local Dalmatian brandy known for its healing powers.

DAY #4 - Sveti Stefan, Montenegro Excursion(s) Aman Sveti Stefan - Non-Renewal (2021)
Today enjoy a private full day tour of Montenegro highlights with your local guide and driver. In Boka Bay, the only fiord in Mediterranean, mountains sink in the crystal-clear sea in front of your eyes in the unique harmony of intact nature and cultural heritage, that is today yours to discover. Your first destination is the old town of Perast, a sleepy baroque place on the seashore. The strong merchant navy tradition represents the best preserved baroque entity in the Adriatic. The most beautiful buildings of this small town were built in the 17th and 18th centuries. At that time seafaring was growing and captains built magnificent villas that even today capture you with their beauty. Perast also abounds in sacred monuments, such as the Church Sveti Nikola and Our Lady of the rocks, built on the artificial island just opposite of Perast. Following your visit to Perast, your guide and driver will take you to Kotor, home-town of the famous sailors and traders of Boka Bay. Kotor’s architecture, a post-modern mix of the various epochs and its position at the bottom of the sharp cliffs of the Lovcen Mountain, makes it different from any other Mediterranean town. Your guide will take you to the Cathedral of St. Trifun, a monument of Roman culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of the town. Nestled in the intricate network of cobblestone streets and squares, lies the Maritime Museum, the custodian of Boka navy fame. Here, among other things, you can admire portraits of the famous captains, models of old galleys and sail boats and other very valuable exponents of the rich heritage of Kotor. Afterwards, your guide and driver will take you back to Sveti Stefan and your hotel. Overnight in Sveti Stefan.
DAY #5 - Sveti Stefan, Montenegro Excursion(s) Aman Sveti Stefan - Non-Renewal (2021)
Today you will have a morning at leisure to enjoy the pink sandy beach of Sveti Stefan, overlooking a postcard-perfect stretch of the Adriatic Coast. In the late afternoon meet your guide and driver for a private tour of Cetinje town – the one-time center of Montenegrin rule. With the breathtaking scenery of mountain wreath behind you, you’ll head towards Montenegro’s inland beauty. Cetinje is a town-museum with an insight to the history of Montenegro and creates a unique cultural milieu. The Old Royal Capital of Cetinje is today a centre of historical and national identity; the memory and continuity of Montenegrin people. Your guide will take you for a walk through the UNESCO site of Cetinje. You will visit the historical St. Peter’s Monastery, founded between 1701 and 1704 by Prince-Bishop Danilo I on the site of the former court of Ivan Crnojevic. It has been destroyed several times by the Turks and consequently restored. The monastery hides one of the greatest relics – “right hand with three fingers of St. John Baptist”. However, in the unbreakable unity of traditional and eclectic architecture of the 19th century, the central part is the richness in numerous art collections of Cetinje Museums. Today you will be treated with a CALVADOS CLUB Extraordinary Experience: VIP tour of the National Museum of Cetinje after working hours. Your curator will take you through the Museum of King Nikola, once a royal residence dominated by a luxurious Art-Nouveau style. After the tour, you will enjoy a scenic ride back to your hotel.

Reviews

We really enjoyed all of our tour guides and adventure guides throughout our time in Croatia! They were always friendly, professional and right on time. The selection of activities was varied and outstanding. We enjoyed the accommodations too. Unique and stylish! While the whole thing felt worth it in aggregate, once we got over there and saw what the prices actually were of things, it felt like we had paid a very high premium in advance. That said, we were having such a great time we tried to just put that our of our minds and enjoy the moment!
