The old town of Korcula is really a pleasant surprise for the visitor. It's a town in complete Venetian's republic style, surrounded by walls and facing a blue sea with crystalline water. We went there curious of the architecture of the town and it's totally worth the visit. Recommended also the climb to the church bell's tower for the panorama!... More

A mini- Dubrovnik, with the emphasis on mini. lots of little streets and Renaissance buildings.Gets very busy in high season, so, if you want to explore it properly, get there early, or late.

For a laid-back, uncrowded, affordable experience this is a great place to visit. Small cobblestone streets to explore with cute shops, hidden restaurants and beautiful flowers. A great waterfront where you can while away the hours sitting in one of several coffee shops at water's edge. Large cruise ships are unable to stop here so you do not have to... More

High season is madness with tourists everywhere. People told us to go now so that we see it before it becomes like Dubrovnik. I think we are already too late. There are still some streets where you can get a bit of quiet to yourself but the best chance of that is long before any of the daily ferries from... More

Well preserved old city that you can walk around. Just look at the small streets and connecting balconies above your head, or the plants you can usually see in your mother's sitting room.

Well preserved medieval old town with an interesting local museum. Great for a day trip. Starting to catch on to tourism so prices are higher than elsewhere, but friendly and certainly worth a visit. We spent some time on the 'beach' near the town centre, but do bear in mind that the term beach in Croatia includes concrete, if you... More

It's a place where I come back every summer. Korcula is one of the most beautiful cities on Adriatic coast and with very unique spirit, views and smells. Their idea of tourism is not very much advanced which I find very good - doesn't keep too many people here. But there are many places to visit and enjoy. Places to... More

We are regular visitors to the island and have explored Korcula Town extensively yet this year was the first time we could actually climb up into the cathedral tower. What an experience climbing up a tiny, narrow set of stairs that snake up the interior of the tower to reveal a 360' panorama of the whole of the city and... More
