PERAST

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - ACTIVE -

Prov­ing that you sim­ply can’t run out of breath­tak­ing views in Mon­tene­gro, Perast may be a tiny, one-street town, but it is also truly ex­quis­ite to look at. Gaz­ing out into the mouth of the Boka, the town’s re­stored palaz­zos are among the coun­try’s most ex­pen­sive and grand, but Perast’s high­lights are ac­tu­ally si­t­u­ated on wa­ter – it’s two pic­turesque is­land churches, the Bene­dic­tine Abbey Of Sveti Djordje and the 15th­cen­tury Our Lady Of The Rocks, steal cen­tre stage in ev­ery pho­to­graph. Top tip: Lo­cals with taxi boats abound in peak sea­son, mean­ing there’s no need to join the hordes on an or­gan­ised tour boat. Ex­pect to pay Dhs40 to Dhs50 to a pri­vate owner for a short cruise vis­it­ing both is­lands.
