Known as ‘Little Dubrovnik', Korcula town is full of historic sights and it's more than easy on the eye. Along with the wine-producing area of Peljesac and the walled village of Ston, it's one of the star turns of this fascinating excursion.
Korcula town is perched on a peninsula in the northeast corner of the large island of Korcula. After a short stop in Ston, we'll reach the town after a boat ride across the Adriatic from Orebic. And once you've stepped inside the honey-coloured town walls, you'll find a slice of vintage Croatia that's all red-roofed tiles and marble streets.
Explore a bit and you'll be rewarded with sights like the ornate St Mark's Cathedral and the house where locals claim Marco Polo was born. Dip into the galleries, admire the churches or drop into one of the pocket-sized cafés. The journey back takes you through the vineyards of the Peljesac peninsula - where you'll get to stop and try some of the local wines.
