Korčula may well be Croatia's most beautiful island and is perhaps the most visibly redolent with history. Significant structures range from Marco Polo's house to medieval fortifications erected to keep Turkish invaders and pirates at bay.
Board a golf cart at the pier for a scenic drive along the coastline of Korčula town. Your driver provides informative commentary about the island and its inhabitants.
At Forteca, enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Old Town before walking along the main street. The zigzags block the cold winter winds that blow in off the sea, while the herringbone layout of the side streets helps temper the heat of the midday sun with some natural 'air-conditioning.' Sound confusing? Great! This design was intended to befuddle the pillagers and pirates of the Middle Ages.
Walk with your guide among the cobblestone streets of one of the most beautiful towns in Dalmatia. See the 14th- to 16th-century fortifications and pass the Rector's palace with its 15th-century turrets. Watch for the house where Marco Polo is said to have been born.
Each golf cart has a dedicated English-speaking driver; the guide offers interpretive information at each stop. The guide leads the group on the walk through Korčula. Wear comfortable walking shoes. The walking tour is optional; guests who decide not to participate can be dropped off at the tender pier. Tour operates rain or shine but may be canceled by the operator in the event of extremely bad weather or unsuitable conditions.
