The isle of Korcula is said to have been founded by a Trojan hero in 12th century BC, but reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. So, you'll probably want to check out all things Marco-related: Visit the Marco Polo Museum and climb the steps of the Marco Polo Tower. Rich in vineyards, olive groves and small villages, and harbouring a glorious old town, the island of Korcula is the sixth-larges Adriatic island. Quiet coves and small sandy beaches dot the steep southern coast while the northern shore is flatter and more pebbly. Refresh yourself with a glass of grk white wine and local cheeses, then explore the marble streets of medieval Korcula town where tradition is alive and kicking with age-old ceremonies, folk music and dances still being performed.
