Korcula Island makes for an awesome day tour from Split or Dubrovnik, however, I would recommend staying overnight. The city itself is very cutesy, lots of shops, restaurants and funky little places to visit. There is a great nightlife, always music playing and people dancing in front of the outdoor bar. Quite enjoyable to just wander the streets in the... More

We had a great tour of the old town including 'Marco Polo's home' being restored. Korcula is another of Croatia's beautiful and historical islands.

Stopped here on a cruise trip. Supposedly Marco Polo lived here and you can see his house as well as a couple of shops selling souvenirs. You cannot go into the house. You can go up the bell tower of the church which is well worth a visit for 3 euros. It's has a very narrow stair case for the... More

Korcula town, beautiful place to visit, Venetian style architecture and a fabulous place for a water-side relaxed lunch.

We took a private tour to Korcula and truly enjoyed it. The day we were there it was very quiet in this ancient city which has a long and interesting history of being ruled by many empires from the Romans to the Venetians. Have a meal on the promenade where you can enjoy the views of the harbor.

Croatian guides have 'forgotten' history, perhaps because they are still getting over the civil war of the 1990s... but the guide who escorted us around Korcula had lots of tales to tell. It was great!

I stayed for two nights in Korcula with my son. I know some people visit Korcula by ferry from Dubrovnik but I don't advise that. I think two nights are the minimum you should stay here. There's so much to do in Korcula and it's a really big island. We rented a bike and cycled the whole day. There are... More

You can get there by taking either a large ferry from Orebic harbour or hire a water taxi (costs a bit more but you can also visit other small islands and stop for a swim). You want to start Korcula tour with the old town, walk around the city walls, about 20 min walk and then just use any of... More

Korkula's claim to fame is that Marco Polo was born there... yet to be proven definitely. It really was boring: we bumped into a couple from our hotel, and their sarcastic comment was: "We are going back to our room and we'll play cards!" Granted, it was a rainy day, but I don't think the sunshine would have made a... More

Very relaxed but then we were travelling after the main season. . We had a car which was great to take us around the island which is actually quite large. We liked Lumbarda and Vela Luka as well as Korcula Town.
