We will then head on to Herceg Novi, located at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor and at the foot of Mount Orjen. This bustling little historic town is a treasure trove of architectural delights –a nod to the many occupations the town has been host to over the last 700 years. The jewel in the crown here is the magical, Italianate Stari Grad (the old town). It is worth noting that after a day here you will soon realise why it is known as the ‘town of steps’!
