Wandering the narrow streets is a delight and you feel completely safe at any time of day or night. And it was great not to be hassled by anyone trying to sell things.

We went there on a Sunday (expecting many people) while since it was a private tour, we arrived and the town was not crowded with folks. This helps us to really experience the old town in a paced manner. Very quiet and peaceful. The church view at the top and Marco Polo House is a must see. Though the Marco... More

Old Korčula is one of those spectacularly beautiful walled towns of the Adriatic. The narrow alleyways just reek of history.

Lovely atmosphere and lots of good restaurants. A few good shops. Excellent taxi service from the main harbour which will take you to the interior of the island which is totally unspoilt and ideal for walking at a very reasonable price.

Visited Marco Polo's house and it was a fascinating insight into the history of Marco Polo, also the views from the bell tower is beautiful, definitely recommend going to Korcula, my favourite place in Dubrovnik :)

It's not really sure whether Marco Polo was born here, but even if not, he would have been proud to call this lovely old city his birthplace - narrow little streets, old stone houses, and cosy restaurants with a magnificient view of the sea.

We caught the ferry from Orebic (check ferry times beforehand as this caught us out). The old town is stunning to walk round with some lovely little shops as well. Highly recommend going up the central tower as the views are breathtaking although the steps are narrow and tricky to negotiate so be careful if you're clumsy like me

We spent 3 days on Kocula and are delighted with the decision. This is truly and beautiful old town with the bonus of the Marco Polo connection adding to its historical story Restaurants were bountiful with all ranges to choose from and well priced too. Take the oppportunity to climb the cathedral tower to get the fantastic views

Lots of little streets and lovely buildings. The shops were very touristy as one would expect but they were all rather the same. Easy to explore in a day with some beautiful little churches. Lots of reasonable eateries. Many steps to up and down.
