6-Night Independent Tour of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast: Dubrovnik, Hvar, Korcula and Split

22 reviews
See Croatia in style by island hopping around the Adriatic Sea. This memorable 7-day island-hopping extravaganza of the Dalmatian Coast starts in Dubrovnik, ends in Split and visits a few islands in between. Traverse the islands of Korčula and Hvar, lingering in the ancient villages that are sprinkled around the islands. Learn about the history of each place. Dine on some delicious local dishes. Lounge on the beach and swim in some of the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. Take walking tours of Dubrovnik, Hvar and Split, plus get hotel accommodation and airport transfers.

I just saw it from outside as most of the reviews noted it was not worth to go in. It is a construction site so i think it was the right decesion, nice to see just from outside as you pass by.

They charge yoou 20kn, and then tell you that you can see just 'this room' (meaning roughly 10 square meters) and the tower, everything else is 'under construction'. There is nothing in the room apart from six wall panels which have seen better days (probably during socialist Yugoslavia), one of them barely legible. Tower does not offer any good views, and you access it by a very steep flight of stairs, wondering if they can hold your weight. Have a drink somewhere, much better use of money.

Following on from the museum centred around the legendary explorer, why not visit his alleged place of birth? The house itself doesn’t offer much besides three floors with small rooms and a few displays. But if you believe Marco Polo was indeed born there like I do, there’s something surreal about following in his footsteps. The highlight of the house is the loggia on the roof. Climb to the top to enjoy a panoramic view of Korčula Old Town and the Pelješac Peninsula, where the Battle of Curzola took place.

The main house is under construction and NOT open to the public. The gatekeeper takes your money and you get the privilege of walking up a rickety flight of stairs to a landing. Upon exiting and complaining to the theif, she smiles and says "Sorry". Legal stealing, STAY AWAY

tipycal venetian house of the XVII century, but Marco Polo was born in Venice (at least 300 years before this house). In Curzola island he was (maybe) just imprisoned during the war against Genoa :D
