We paid 20 kuna each to walk up,the tower of the so- called Marco Polo house. There really is nothing in there! Better to stand outside and take a look at the tower and the decaying structure next to it and imagine what it must have been like in the 13 th century to leave Europe and make such a... More

If u want to know a lot of details about mr polo would probably visit the museum. The tower is nostalgic nice to think his house might have been there and with the beautiful tower view imagine his thoughts to get out of the island. Only 20 konas to get in so dont expect a museum.

Just a plague on the wall with a picture of Marco Polo saying he was born here and a empty lot. Doesn't help their case to prove he was born here.

Having enjoyed walking around the lovely island of Korcula. Was disappointed thinking we had visited the home of Marco Polo,( a very tiny room??? ) to discover there is no proof Marco Polo was born on Korcula ., He supposedly was born in Venice ,although even these details are very sketchy. Anyway Someone is making a bundle using the MARCO... More

After visited the Marco Polo museum, I was so excited to learn more about Marco Polo. But climbing up the stairs, all I saw was disappointment. Really nothing, its all ruins.

A disappointing visit to Marco Polos house because there is so little to see. Reconstruction of the building is apparently underway (not a lot of obvious evidence at this point) but I could not recommend paying any entrance fee for so little.. Korcula is very beautiful bit there is a tendency to charge for every location ... The cathedral is... More

Not much left of the house & nothing to say it was his actual birthplace in the city records, but a Polo family still live in Korcula. It's a lovely place, not a walled city as stated as they've been pulled down, but lovely architecture & history. Town is full of restaurants ... go to one overlooking the sea &... More

Waste of money really..All you are paying for, is to walk up some very squeaky steps to a tower with a view. ...not a brilliant one at that !!! @80 hkr just go for another beer!!
