Korcula old town is a medieval walled city positioned on an oval shaped area. The city itself boasts a succession of narrow streets that branch off the spine of the main street like a fish bone. Said to be the birth place of Marco Polo, you can visit his house and the Marco Polo Exhibition to learn more about his illustrious life. Visit the main square and the cathedral, both named after St. Marko. Just behind the main entrance to the town lies another smaller square, with illustrious, historic buildings.
