If you're looking for a classy place with plenty of eateries, fantastic views, local street food and handmade souvenirs, then this is for you. There are many activities such as hiring mopeds and boats etc if that's what you enjoy. However, there are also an abundance of places to sit and enjoy the fantastic sea views, watching the boats go... More

What a charming old town. The choice of restaurants is staggering, and the quaint alleys and beautiful views cannot fail to impress. If you like watching the water and beautiful boats its an added bonus. A fabulous place to watch the sunset. Beware of 'cruise ship' days can get a little crushed.

This is the alleged birth place of Marco Polo, and the museum of that name is interesting. But I found it just about the only place of interest in the town. The old city is the size of the palm of your hand, has one church and a town hall. I found nothing of interest there. Best to take a... More

Picturesque town, great to wander around the streets and soak up the atmosphere. Informative museums, Get good views of Korcula from the Cathedral bell tower. Lots of restaurants and cafes to sit at. Best icecreams are from Kiwi just before you go up the steps into the city walls.

An absolute highlight of the island. Having traveled to most "big places", Korcula town stands out with its lovely old town, and great restaurants with a view. A tiny bit above average prices (compared to other places on the island) but definitely worth a visit. It's a 0.5 day program max.

Admittedly a bit touristy, Korcula's old city is a sight with its well-preserved medieval houses. Ignore the Marco Polo museum, it's a ripoff and there's no historical evidence that he ever was there (let alone born...). Enjoy the stunning view from the central church's bell tower of the old town, the coastline and the islands. But watch out, the staircase... More

Lovely walled town, ancient paved streets and alleyways. Interesting historic architecture. Good restaurants, shops and bars. Small enough to explore the whole town in a day but worth spending a couple of days in (depending on your boredom threshold!). Some good bathing spots and islands nearby.

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.
