Where I stayed
The town itself is painfully cute. The tight alleyways buzzing with restaurants and bars heavily frequented by locals out celebrating the catholic holiday of corpus christi. We wandered up and down, poking our noses in shop windows and trying to corner local cats to inflicted often unwanted affections. Wandering about it does not take long in Korcula to figure out the town hero. While Venice claims him as their own the town of Korcula, with some justification, claims it was the birthplace of Marco Polo - bringer of pasta to Italy and perhaps the greatest traveler of all time
Our hastily arranged accommodation was so charming that it rates a mention. It was once the home of the owners grandparents and obviously had not been redecorated in half a century. Beautiful 1950's decor filled the house, and gave it a homely feeling that we, and especially Leah, took a real shine to. The view out the window was the best of our trip thus far, taking in the old town and stretching around to what would be our next destination. The rather small and remote town of Viganj. We only had the one night in Korcula and were sad to leave its cute little alleyways and streets so soon.
