Begin your journey with a scenic ride ascending the steep slopes of Lovcen Mountain. The road is made up of a series of serpentines, each curve disclosing a yet more spectacular view below. Your coach climbs along the same route that the famous British author, Bernard Shaw, took at the beginning of this century to Montenegro when he was 73 years old. He said with enthusiasm“ I have heard that the road to Cetinje via Kotor is one of the most beautiful in the world, and that is the reason I have come.” The summit's sensational vista offers a powerful contrast between the towering Montenegrin Mountains to one side and one of the world's most beautiful bays on the other.
Continue toward the picturesque village of Njegusi, a very special place known for its well-preserved folk architecture and traditional Montenegrin cuisine. Upon arrival in Njegusi, tour a traditional smokehouse and learn about the production of unique Njeguski prsut (prosciutto). Enjoy sampling a selection of pork and beef, homemade cheeses, and salads in this charming village. At the conclusion of your guided tour, rejoin your coach, relax and enjoy the scenery on your return ride to the ship.
