best of in 6 daysHi, I have a few questions regarding my trip in Montenegro in early May.
I will be meeting friends in Kotor a couple days after I arrive from Rome, any recommendations for a good spot to spend that short period of time before my friends arrive? I'm interested primarily in natural and architectural beauty, nightlife aside from a couple beers in the pub doesn't interest me.
Also, any ideas for my best means of travel from Rome to Montenegro on a friday evening or Saturday morning?
After our time in Kotor, we would like to visit another area of the country before we move onto Croatia. I am interested in visiting some mountains that may allow for a great day hike(a moderate 8 hours or less if strenuous), any recommendations?
Thanks for your help!

1Have you considered hiking in Durmitor National Park? There are plenty of day hikes, some strenous and some not so. You can take the bus from Kotor to Niksic and catch a bus to Zabljak where the park headquarters is located. From there it is possible to take buses (at least one connection) to Mostar and Sarajevo.
Rome to Montenegro isn't going to be an easy trip unless you can find a cheap flight on JAT to Podgorica or something to Tivat. Even if you find a cheap flight to someplace else in the Balkans (Sarajevo, Belgrade, Pristina), it still won't be easy to get to Kotor. If you end up in Sarajevo, there is at least one bus daily to Kotor or combinations, from Belgrade, there is an overnight train to Bar, from Pristina it's a series of buses. If you fly to Split, it is probably two buses or more to Kotor. Just about the same from Dubrovnik. Any of these possibilities will take the better part of the day.
You could take the train from Rome to Ancona or Bari and take the ferry to Bar. Not sure how often it operates in early May though.
