PERAST

Looking like a chunk of Venice that has floated down the Adriatic and anchored itself onto the bay, Perast hums with melancholy memories of the days when it was rich and powerful. Despite having only one main street, this tiny town boasts 16 churches and 17 formerly grand palazzo. The town slopes down from the highway to a narrow waterfront road that runs along its length. At its heart is St Nicholas' Church, set on a small square lined with date palms and the bronze busts of famous citizens.

PERAST WEATHER

Summer strolls into Kotor Bay with sunshine galore and excellent temperatures, an overall dry air accompanied by cooling evening breezes and just an occasional shower here and there to maintain the green lushness of the flora surrounding the Old Town. The average summer temperature ranges a beautiful 26-31°C (73-89°F), with nights refreshingly cool at 15-18°C (53-64°F). The hotter days go boldly above 30°C, so make sure you pack both short and long sleeves – the substantial differences between night and day might take you by surprise otherwise.
