When it comes to photogenic settings, you can’t get much more atmospheric than Kotor, which sits within a curved bay with a backdrop of formidable mountains. This city on the Adriatic of Montenegro is distinctive for its charming medieval old town, with labyrinthine, cobbled streets filled with historic churches, cafes and museums. On Kotor cruises, spend a morning walking around (or on top of, if you’re feeling energetic) the fortified walls, the building of which took place between the 9th and 14th centuries. Don’t miss the spectacular panoramic views from St John’s Fortress. Elsewhere in Kotor, soak up some culture at Kotor Cathedral, which was built in 1166 and features a striking Romanesque style. The Castle of San Giovanni perches on a dramatic hilltop overlooking the bay, making it the perfect spot to get some snaps. Or, stretch your legs by following a hiking trail in Lovcen National Park, which is also the home of the poet Petar II Petrovic Njegos. Before leaving, head to the Sea Gate, which is the main entrance to Kotor. Its origins date back to the Venetian rule of 1555, and so it features the symbol of Venice, a winged lion. Grab some pictures on the famous bench in front of the entrance.
