We visited here today, arriving on the 10 AM passenger ferry (24 kn each RT) from Orebic. With its convenient landing, we walked to the nearby Porta Maris to climb the Baroque staircase up to the main plaza, the largest level area in Korcula. Besides the artistic Cathedral of St Mark with it's cone shaped ciborium and Tintoretto over the altar, there are the 15th C Bishop’s Palace Treasury, the Town Museum in a 16th C Palace and the map of Marco Polo’s 1271-1295 travels (near his supposed birthplace).
We spotted so many wonderfully sculpted stone doorways, window frames and lintels on walks around this town and up to the main 13th C old town gate-tower.

Smaller version of Dubrovnik old town.

Architecture, culture, and galleries, all within very short walking distance and packaged in a romantic flair.

For any short overnight visit, best accommodation choice is within the old town, or new town close by.

Many restaurants, not cheap, but several very good ones.

Small stone beaches in and around town. Not super beaches, but fine for a cooling off swim in between enjoying the town flair.

Use water taxi “Hop on hop off” from the marina promenade, with fixed price for visiting beaches around the southeast coast.

Easy access from Dubrovnik and Split by catamaran direct to the old town.

What a fabulous town. It is all that you dream of when visiting Croatia. It has a city wall, narrow streets paved with marble tiles and old medieval houses. In addition it has not been discovered by mass tourism yet so it is not crowded at all. We stayed right in the center and went swimming every morning along the city wall. The most fantastic city I have visited in Croatia so far. If you get the opportunity don’t miss it. You will remember it for the rest of your life.

A perfect town to walk around. Shops are unique and pricing is competitive, less than Dubrovnik. Down side is only can pay in most shops with local currency. Good news is that plans are to go to Euro in 2023/24. Coffee shops/wine bars are plenty and very very good value.

Beautiful place to visit. Not full of rowdy tourists and very family friendly. Beach not far away although very pebbled

Good quality eateries everywhere. Expect to pay 35kn for 0.5l of beer, 80kn for a v large pizza on average.

Some beautiful apartments to stay in and I do recommend Apartment Vita. Its ideally situated, quiet bu smack in the centre of Old Town.

It has something magical in this old town...some of them call it small Dubrovnik, but to be honest this place has a soul and Dubrownik has just walls.
I do not know what impressed me more, small interesting streets, beautiful houses, breath taking views...I travelled a lot, but Korčulas has something special what can not be described by words. Come and see...
Btw, leave the car in the Tomy supermarket above the town, 5kn per hour, safe place, 5min walk to old town

My favourite island in Croatia so far! So calm and no party tourists unlike Hvar. It was really calm and nice atmosphere. I recommend getting an accomodation there for a few days. The old town is lovely and there is a lot to see. The views from the top of the cathedral are great. Please visit!

Nothing but restaurants and souvenir shops. Can't get a cup of coffee without local currency. Old Town had no impressive architecture or tour spots. Its a grab lunch and go port. Wouldn't bother to get off the ship on a future stop

Old town Korčula is on eastern part of Island of Korčula. Access with ferry from Orebič (15 min). Contained within historic walls like Dubrovnik. By some historians birth town of Marco Polo. Old town is small, but a lot of good restaurants. One, LD restaurant, Michelin starred. Others along the old walls are quite good. There is museum of Marco Polo.

Korcula is a lovely.charming old town.It is a small town,but has many lovely little shops and many places to eat.We had a day trip from Dubrovnik to Korcula and that was enough time to experience it.We had a nice meal here and visited the church and went up the tower,which is very tight for space,and had a nice day looking at the market and shops.
