Interestingly the old town of Korčula is far smaller than Dubrovnik, and so can be explored very quickly. Whilst the quality of the restoration is not as great as that of Dubrovnik, the quaintness of this piece of Croatian history is very appealing. There were few crowds, and the front promenade had a great selection of restaurants. Definitely worth a... More

I love the old town of Kurcula. Smaller than Dubrovnik, still with crowds this time of year. If you want good views, you should climb the bell tower. Also a good idea to pay for a guided tour, to give you a better understanding of its history.

If you are not opposed to a bit of travelling then please please visit here. It is worth taking the ferry from Dubrovnik for roughly 3 hours (if you work it out properly you can stay for two nights cheaply and easily). The views here are breathtaking from the old town and it is so peaceful. If you are looking... More

Visited the island for a day and would recommend it. There are lots of little shops and places to eat or drink and the scenery is beautiful. Well worth a visit

We meet friends in Vela Luca on Korcula but it was a mission to get there from Dubrovnik. We hired a car and it was about 3.5hrs. Its much quieter than Dubrovnik and the water is so clear and clean. A good overnight trip but outside of just relaxing not much to do for a young family

2.5 hours (one way) by boat from Dubrovnik to visit a small island with little to see apart from a small church, bell tower, and Marco Polo museum. Thankfully, the day was saved by chance by having lunch at Filiippi

Korcula has the interesting old town, some great historical sites and good shopping without the crowds. I went there twice recently, it was raining the first time and warm the second. No matter where you visit, good weather has a big impact, so the second time was much more enjoyable. I could concentrate on listening to the guide and the... More

Did a daytrip here and town was very old and interesting. I would love to return some day as torrential rain did restrict my sightseeing a bit. did like the Guides information especially that this is claimed to be Marco Polo's birthplace

Korchula is a lovely, quiet island. It has plenty of restaurants and things to see. I would recommend a short climb up the Marco Polo Bell Tower for starters. It is a great place to sit and people watch, in the warm sunshine, overlooking the water, and with a cocktail in hand.
