  • The old town of Korcula is a little gem nestled between the Adriatic waters. Enclosed by imposing walls develops into a maze of narrow streets bordered by typical houses with red tiles. Some church here and there, the House of Marco Polo, but was not born here as would have you believe but in Venice. Every corner is a sight to behold. Worth a visit both day and night.
