... about 3-4 minutes. So, why is Korcula famous you are asking? Well, this is the supposed birthplace Of Marco Polo. The man I believe is instrumental to the beginning of the renaissance. Now we all know Marco Polo was born in Venice, but as Korcula was part of the Venetian empire at that time, he could still have been born on this island. Anyway, this is what the island capitalizes on. There is a museum to Marco Polo, which I have to admit I refused on principal to pay the ...
... br> Surprisingly the next day most of us woke up healthy. On our way to our next adventure we sailed around the outside of the old city walls, it was fantastic to see looking up from the ocean.
then we headed of to Sipan, a lovely little town at the end of a long inlet called Sipanska. We backed the boat up to the town wharf which only holds about ten boats, as we were early there was only one other boat there. We ...
... was divided . Max, always looking for the best in people, took pity on Boris....old, well meaning gentle man etc. I however was less generous- he was useless. After returning to correct a number of issues with the apartment he amicably asks us to put in a good word for him on the travel websites. You have to be joking. Other than Boris and his inadequacies, we enjoyed Korcula. It did, by no means, have the buzz of Dubrovnik but it was charming. After the first 24 hours we'd ...
... freshly grilled orada fish and veggies for lunch. We both agree it may be the best fish we've ever had. After lunch we headed over to the island of Lopud. During the brief sail/motor over, smoke started appearing out of the cabin. We ended up spending an hour or so on Lopud while they worked on the boat. Turns out the cooling system on the boat needed some work, but we made it back to Dubrovnik just fine. We had dinner at a vegetarian restaurant called Nishta, which was clearly ...
... the supremely-bemused, underaged gas station attendants (for paying purposes) if they're heading south.

TravelPod Member ReviewsVilla Depolo Korcula Town
It was clean and comfortable and just what we expected. Our host was very helpful and accommodating and her place was very clean and well kept. It was all we needed as two single females traveling and always on the go...a hot shower and a clean comfy bed to sleep in. Bonus: she provided use of her fridge and a selection of coffee and teas. I would stay there again and recommend to others. It's not a 5 star hotel with a spa...It is exactly as she described and exactly what we booked.
