Tour description provided by Viator

Lying on a small peninsula on the island of the same name, surrounded by city walls and fortresses, Korcula is one of the most beautiful medieval cities on the Adriatic Coast. The town is also the supposed birthplace of Marco Polo, the famous explorer. Tour the charming streets and squares, with their Renaissance palaces and the magnificent St Mark Cathedral, named for the city’s patron saint.

The island of Korcula undoubtedly holds a privileged position among the Croatian islands. Here, there are more legends, tales and monuments than anywhere else. Being stonemasons, shipbuilders and seafarers, the people of Korcula shared their gifts with the world, but they saved their best works for their own city.

A bus will carry you to Orebic, where a ferry takes you to the island. Experience the charming streets, beautiful churches and magnificent palaces in the island’s city of the same name, which is also one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean. You’ll also hear a little history of the town’s famous son, Marco Polo, who many believe was born here. After sightseeing, enjoy free time to have lunch and even go swimming.

On the way back to Dubrovnik, indulge in excellent local wine at two of the well-known wine cellars on the Peljesac peninsula.
