Marco Polo has a vast historical heritage traveling more than 15000 miles and inspiring generations of pioneers to discover the unknown lands. Other explorers before him had changed the geography of the world – Marco Polo changed its history. Interestingly, many sources suggest that Korčula is a town where he was born around 1254! The island of Korčula undoubtedly holds a privileged position among the Croatian islands. It is full of legends, tales and monuments - more than any other island in the Adriatic sea. Once we arrived on the island, we will start our day trip by discovering the picturesque old town of Korčula, the main town of the island. It is a unique experience to walk along the narrow streets and among the beautiful churches and magnificent palaces of what is considered to be one of the best-preserved Medieval towns in the Mediterranean. Being famous stonemasons, shipbuilders and seafarers, the people of Korčula left their marks all over the world, but saved their best works for their hometown. After a sightseeing tour of the old town of Korčula, you will have some free time for lunch. After lunch, you shouldn't miss out swimming in the crystal clear water of the island's beautiful beaches. On our way back to Dubrovnik, we will make a stop in one of the well-known wine cellars on the Pelješac peninsula and sample some of the excellent local wine.

Very nice excursion to Korkula with plenty of free time on site to visit the charming medieval town and immerse yourself with delight in the transparent water. Special mention to Paolina, our guide who speaks French to perfection and accompanied us with kindness and availablity.

It was such a relaxing day. After walking in the heat previous days the air conditioned bus and being taken to the beautiful island Korcula and Ston was a welcome change. So lovely to see the countryside and stunning views.

Ivan explains the most difficult historical contexts in a very interesting and entertaining way. Nicolas is a great bus driver who always makes you feel safe. Together the perfect team. Great. Thanks for the great day

Visiting Mljet is a timeless place of salt lakes and crystal clear water. Too bad the time spent on site is short, but sailing on the catamaran is a unique and meditative experience.

Nice guide. Well organized trip. Beautiful area. Wonderful scenes. A day to remember.
