After visited the Marco Polo museum, I was so excited to learn more about Marco Polo. But climbing up the stairs, all I saw was disappointment. Really nothing, its all ruins.

Having enjoyed walking around the lovely island of Korcula. Was disappointed thinking we had visited the home of Marco Polo,( a very tiny room??? ) to discover there is no proof Marco Polo was born on Korcula ., He supposedly was born in Venice ,although even these details are very sketchy. Anyway Someone is making a bundle using the MARCO... More

A disappointing visit to Marco Polos house because there is so little to see. Reconstruction of the building is apparently underway (not a lot of obvious evidence at this point) but I could not recommend paying any entrance fee for so little.. Korcula is very beautiful bit there is a tendency to charge for every location ... The cathedral is... More

Not much left of the house & nothing to say it was his actual birthplace in the city records, but a Polo family still live in Korcula. It's a lovely place, not a walled city as stated as they've been pulled down, but lovely architecture & history. Town is full of restaurants ... go to one overlooking the sea &... More

Waste of money really..All you are paying for, is to walk up some very squeaky steps to a tower with a view. ...not a brilliant one at that !!! @80 hkr just go for another beer!!

A broken down tower with a few stairs. Hardly worth the 20 kunas. However the photo opportunities outside the house are interesting and you don't have to pay for the privilege. Certainly go there see the outside and save your money for a drink at the Tower Cocktail Bar.

If you go, don't bump your head on the projection that comes out over the stairs. Easier to view the place from the street.

"House" is in fact just a staircase inside the tower, climbing to the top terrace from where you can get a nice view on the town. Though you could get a better view from the cathedral belltower which is higher and has more space on the top, but still the same price as this "house", 20 kuna. There are some... More

This was very disappointing. For 20 kunas you get to climb thru a narrow, wooden staircase to 'not so high' top floor and look around the town roofs. Apparentely some reconstruction is still in progress so maybe in a few years you'll get to see something :-/

Just a walk up the stairs for the nominal fee. This should be a suggested donation or free. Not much to do other than that.
