What You Can Expect
One of the most romantic island cities in Croatia, Korcula island is one of the top destinations for tourists that cruise the Adriatic. According to legend, it was founded by the Trojan hero Antenor, and was home to the Mesolithic and Neolithic peoples who first settled on this island. Most famously known to be the birth place of traveler Marco Polo in 1254, Korcula is now the second most populous island on the Adriatic, filled with historical and cultural heritage.
Ston is the first stop after departing from Dubrovnik. With well preserved city walls which once protected the town during the medieval times, Ston is a charming town with rich history. An optional visit to the ancient salt-works before continuing on the Peljesac peninsula will allow for an interesting stop on the tour.
Enjoy the beautiful green scenery, vineyards and blue bays along the way before arriving to Orebic to embark on a boat ride to the magnificent island of Korcula. Once in town, visit the cathedral, city museum, and the house of Marco Polo. Followed is free time to walk through the Old Town and its abundant souvenir shops, and have lunch at a tavern of your choice serving many delicious Dalmatian specialities. After saying good-bye to this marvellous island, there is one last stop to be made on our return, as the Peljesac peninsula is known as one of the most famous Croatian wine regions. Enjoying in an extraordinary wine tasting is a delightful ending to the journey as we continue back to Dubrovnik.
