You will almost inevitably walk through here if you are visiting Kotor. Lots of tourist shops and a couple of restaurants, the further into town you walk the better value you will find. Take in the clock and the architecture.

This is the largest and the most grandiose of Kotor's squares. You will enter this piazza as you enter the Old City from the main gate (Sea Gate). The buildings along the piazza are beautiful and there are plenty of shops and cafes to enjoy.
