“Island of Korcula Croatia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The tiny island of Korcula was an intersting and attractive site to visit. Just a short 15 minute boat ride from the main land of Croatia. Lots of small restaurant and outdoor cafes to sit and watch the world go by. The cathedral and view from the top of the bell tower was amazing and well worth facing a fear of heights for.
Very calming and relaxing place to visit.

“So interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is an absolutely beautiful city! The old town here is perfect for wandering around, but not complicated like some other old towns in Europe. It's very easy to navigate, and there are so many interesting things to do!

“Peaceful and beautiful idyllic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Our travel agent recommended visiting Korcula instead of Hvar and we are forever thankful that she did. Hvar is like Split on steroids. Overrun by tourists, crowded, noisy and best if you are 30 or under for the great partying scene. Korcula, on the other hand, is quiet, peaceful and simply delightful. The old city is small and it's easy to walk everywhere. All streets lead to the cathedral at the top so it's impossible to get lost. Many excellent restaurants are tucked away in the small side streets and there is a promenade overlooking the water with many more places to eat. You can swim from almost anywhere though we chose to walk to a small beach that was 5 minutes outside of town. The water is stunningly clear. Overall, it was a great place to visit.
