One of many alleged birthplaces of 13th-century explorer Marco Polo, the island of Korčula is one of the largest in the Adriatic and within easy striking distance Dubrovnik by road and sea. Perched on a peninsula and well on its way to becoming the party town of the Adriatic, Korčula Old Town is a mini version of Dubrovnik, with several ornate entry gates and fortified walls punctuated with defense towers built by the Venetians in the 13th century. Within the walls are fine old Gothic and Baroque churches to unearth among the photogenic tangle of alleyways that lead off the main square of Strossmayerov trg, which are all now lined with stylish art galleries, shops, bars and restaurants. Along with a smattering of small museums, the Cathedral of St Mark is the Old Town’s principal attraction, a mellow Venetian-built church with a carved façade guarded by stone lions and an interior full of masterly stone carvings and even a painting by Tintoretto.
