Korčula & Pelješac
Famous for its beautiful scenery and excellent wine, we think that the Pelješac peninsula is simply something you cannot miss! Part of the former Dubrovnik Republic, Pelješac is also famous for its salt production, which was large contributor to the Republic’s prosperity in times before refrigeration, being known as white gold.
From Pelješac, by a boat we will reach the old town of Korcula where our guide will allow you to discover the most interesting monuments. Especially worth visiting is the cathedral on top of the hill, built by local masters in the Gothic Renaissance style and home to paintings by Tintoretto. Architecturally, it has a beautifully decorated facade, and a characteristic portal with statues of Adam and Eve.
Just a few steps from the cathedral is the home of Marco Polo with its breathtaking view of the town from the terrace. In your free time you may also stroll around the town and visit some of the many art galleries here.
On our way back we will take you to a wine celler where you may judge the quality of home-produced alcohols for yourself. There, according to Dalmatian custom, a warm welcome with home made herb brandy and sun-dried figs awaits you.
After that, we visit Ston, a small town with a great history. Here, you can view the European Chinese Wall (5.5 km long), try the best oysters in the country, and see where high quality salt is harvested from the Adriatic, right up to the present day.
