A lovely area to meet and take in some of the culture. Also good place to stop and have a break (if you can find a seat) it does get busy. Found it good early in the day. Admire the architecture and paving.

This Piazza/square is close to the Main Gate. This entrance is close to the port. Do walk around and soak in the culture; sit and have something to eat or drink in this lovely square, which is filled with cafes and restaurants. The clock tower is also in this square. We did see a couple people asking for money, one... More

Passing through the Sea Gate, one comes across the Square of Arms, a largish square for little Kotor. The square contains the former arsenal, the Rector's Palace and the Clock Tower, as well as few cafes and restaurants

A nice place to visit, your tour guide will explain about it and you will probably see the Pyramid of Shame where people were punished and tortured for their crimes in the Middle ages. There are lot of cafes and tourists. We saw some beggar children, who come and touch you and ask for money quite blatantly. So be aware.... More

Entrance to the city is here. Clock tower nearby has survived earthquakes. Nice ice cream nearby too. Right next to where our cruise boat the queen Victoria docked.

Through the Sea Gate you come to this plaza and the many alleys that lead off it. There is always a lot of activity in the plaza, especially when cruise ships are in and the weather is fine.

Due to the Cruise liners which appear nearly every day, this place is always busy from early till about 6pm, if you dont mind walking behind umbrella tours then visit during the day, if not leave it till later in the evening when it is more quiet

The Piazza of the Arms (or Square of Arms - Trg od Oruzja) is the largest square in the city and a good place to start your visit - just through the Main Gate (or Sea Gate). On the square are some of Kotor's most important buildings including the Ducal Palace to the immediate left of the gate and the... More
