Steep wooden stairs lead up to the top of the tower in the Marco Polo house. Great view from the top. History is documented in photos on the walls.
First off, the official placard upon entry points out that no is sure where Marco Polo was born, though most historians settle on either Korkula (this island) or Vienna. Secondly this isn't even a house...it's a tower with a cute view. The old town in general is pretty standard, old village streets and shops everywhere. They play up the Marco... More
Not so good becouse they work till 15 and afternoon closed what is not good for turisam.We went in the morning wery nice house you can smell oldnes of the house and almost feal Marco Polo
There is a small entry fee to go in, but the whole place takes no more than 10 minutes to go round and is a poor state of repair and smells very damp. I was not very impressed. The view is okay, but it's all over so quickly. If time is pressed, I would not bother with this.
There isn't a lot to see at Marco Polo's house - it's a bit misleading to call it a house as you can only climb the tower and there wasn't anything else - unless we missed it! That said it must be done as the view is marvellous. I'm not great with heights but managed to climb the stairs without... More
The attraction is just posters on the walls and the view isn't as good as the belltower at St. Mark's Cathedral which is very close by. It's not worth the 20 Kuna. You can grab a breakfast and coffee instead with that money. The Marco Polo Shops in town are more interesting and free to browse, do that instead.
There's very little to see here other than the view from the top. However, the view is much better from the adjacent cathedral tower!
First of all, there is no absolute proof that Marco Polo was even born on Korcula. I will leave this for the historians, BUT making 2 euros off of a handful of posters on the walls and a tower with somewhat decent views is a bit rude. There are no artifacts of his life, no furniture, books or anything authentic... More
It's really neat to see such an old house with so much history. The house itself is beautiful, and the interior as well. You don't need much time to peek in, but you definitely shouldn't miss it on a trip to Korcula!
