The birthplace of Marco Polo! We did some exploring ourselves...mostly around the old town and with food and wine because we had a horrifying thunderstorm one of the nights. It was fun to stay in and drink wine and watch movies in Croatian and make up what they were saying. We did meet a cool guy named Atun who was our cab driver/tour guide for a …
... this delightful but small farm. With a few hours left of the day, we walked back into town, for a final browse, in this the birthplace of Marco Polo.

an amazing sea organ that is built in to the stone wall so that when the waves
hit it makes a beautiful sound. There ...

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.
