“Charming historic old town in a gorgeous setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We enjoyed our leisurely drive along the Peljisac Peninsula, past the "Great Wall of Croatia" at Ston, through the vineyards and wineries to the short ferry trip to Korcula. I probably can't do justice to the beautiful vistas en route, of ocean and sky and lighthouse, and islands large and small. The old town is small, not much to see, and the connection to Marco Polo a bit tenuous, but it is beautiful and charming nonetheless. We very much enjoyed drinking great Croatian wine and watching the moon rise over the bay at a restaurant in the old town.

“Korcula Charming and small”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stayed in Korcula for 3 days and loved every bit of it. You can cover the old town in less than 3 hours. We had a room over looking the restaurants and main promenade going around the old city. If you are looking for an island to ease into the Croatian lifestyle this is it. You have to see Dubrovnik for the old city, but Korcula for it's charm and beautiful surroundings and lack of cruise ships and tourists.

“Similar to Dubrovnik but longer to get there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I must have travelled out of season but it took 3 hours by bus plus a ferry ride to get to this island. out of a 10 hour tour i spent 6 hours inside a bus. Korcula is similar to old town dubrovnik and although i enjoyed the wine tour and the visit to Ston afterwards i would have preferred a quicker route to get there.

“Spectacular view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went a little wrong when we came off the ferry but it turned out to be to our advantage. We got to see some spectacular views and really enjoyed the drive.
