Interesting walled city.

Loved Korcula - big fan of the walled cities in Croatia. Smaller scale than Dubrovnic. Saw the Moreska sword dancing which appealed to our kids aged 11 and 13.

I want to go back to this old city. We attended mass here too. Even though we do not understand anything they were saying. Except when they were praying the rosary, we all get the part. I enjoyed our stay. We even stayed in an old building. I love it. Scenery is excellent. I recommend everyone to grab a tour... More

Off season so no one was on the island. Took the ferry over and there were four passengers. Incredible to see the Marco Polo house and walk the deserted streets with gorgeous views. Nice cathedral. One outdoor coffee shop to sit and people watch. I had the place to myself. Wonderful ride on the boat and two hours to explore.... More

The locals claim Marco Polo, my personal idol, was born here. It is a beautiful place in the Adriatic sea, definitely worth visiting. The old city with its narrow alleyways takes you back to times past. Although it was the 1st of January so most of the places were understandably closed, I would recommend a visit to Korcula with all... More

The old city is the highlight of the entire Korcula Island. You have numerous restaurants, bars, markets, attractions (i.e. Marco Polo's home where he was born) and much more. The old city is intimate, full of history and a must when on the island. You can easily stay in this town for a week or more. Enjoy the old city!... More

Last visited Dubrovnik on my honeymoon - at least a hundred years ago. Nothing's changed except you get hassled a lot more down at the waterfront. It's mega expensive but a very beautiful place just to stroll through. The walls are worth a visit as is the trip up the mountain by cable car. The views from the top are... More

Just visit this place and see for yourself! It's beautifully historic, very well preserved, peaceful, unique, great shopping and excellent restaurants and bars - Massimo bar (see my profile pic..) is one one of my all time favourite bars. Put it on your bucket list!

Don't miss this quaint and lovely little seaside town with walkways of hidden treasures. It was raining the day we were there but it didn't matter. We walked the streets and then sat outside with a tea and coffee. So relaxing and enjoyable not to have to "tour" anything.

We got to Korcula on a cruise after visiting a number of old cities like Dubrovnik so the impact was muted a bit. However, it is lovely and one gets the feeling that it hasn't had to have been rebuilt as much as some places where war has served as a kind of brutal urban renewal. It is much less... More

I didn't have enough time to thoroughly explore. It's a pretty, old city and worth more than a couple hours, which is all I had. Spend some time in museums and talking to locals.
