Cruise to A Land of Discovery
When it comes to exploring the isle of Korcula, you’ll be following in the footsteps of legends and fellow world travelers alike. For not only is the island said to have been founded by a Trojan hero in 12th century BC, but it’s also reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo.
So the first thing you’ll probably want to do upon arrival here is check out all things Marco-related: Visit the Marco Polo Museum and climb the steps of the Marco Polo Tower, believed to be the house where you-know-who was born in 1254. Next up, Croatian snack time!
In Korcula that would mean a glass of locally made white wine or a glass of grk—fun to say, even better to drink. Produced only in the hills near Lumbarda, this rare wine is the perfect match for the local artisan cheeses found in market stalls. And if you must, you could “settle” for the more common pošip varietal.
Then it’s time to do a little exploring of your own of Korcula Town. Surrounded by walls, towers and gates, the medieval town is very pedestrian friendly, and spans out like a fishbone, with marble streets that branch off. And just like the great adventurers of the past, you can regale your friends and family with tales of exotic lands once you return from your journey at sea.
