Visit two beautiful small towns with rich history, culture and gastronomy in one day. Ston is famous for medieval town walls,one of the longest in the world. You'll also see the oldest active saltworks in Europe and try delicious oysters. Korčula is a hometown of Marco Polo, with beautiful architecure, food and wine. On this island you can have a real Mediterranean experience.
Korčula is a historic fortified town on the protected east coast of the island of Korčula .The old city is surrounded by walls, and the streets are arranged in a herringbone pattern allowing free circulation of air but protecting against strong winds.This is a place where, according to some sources, Marco Polo was born. It has many beautiful beaches and bays, stone houses, centuries-old olive groves and vineyards.The “must see” sights are the Cathedral of St. Marco, the center of religious life, and the most beautiful Gothic Renaissance monument in the old town of Korčula. There is also the Korčula Town museum, situated in the Gabrijelis palace. Folk knight dances, Moreška, Kumpanija and Mostra, represent a part of the tradition of Korčula. Korčula is also famous for its gastronomic delicacies, typical for the Mediterranean region. Most famous traditional meal is "brodet" (fish stew), made of fresh fish with polenta, goat and sheep cheese, which is usually followed by homemade quince jelly for dessert – the kontonjata.Ston is a small town on the Pelješac peninsula, known for the oldest active saltworks in the world, growing mussels, wine production, but primarily for its 5,5 km long town walls, which are the longest in Europe. Narrow, quiet streets, elegant old houses and traces of ancient cultures look as if they were scattered all around the town. One can say that Stone once had a very rich history, in which it did not lack anything, given that the salt was once considered and called “the white gold.” It is possible that its magnificent walls were built exactly thanks to salt.This is usual trip itinerary, but we are flexible to adjust to any your special demand.The boarding of passengers from 07:30 to 08:00.
