Island of Korcula

Said to be the birth-place of Marco Polo, this small fortified town, ruled by Venetians in the past, has an ingenious layout in the shape of a fishbone, both to prevent the strong winds from chilling the houses in winter and to increase the air circulation in the summer. The outer walls serve as a promenade, offering beautiful views of Pelješac peninsula’s vineyards, perfect for a romantic dinner.
