Our tour begins at 08:15 in the morning from Dubrovnik , stopping at the medieval city of Ston for coffee and a short tour and continuing through Peljesac peninsula all the way to the village of Orebic where we will board a boat line to take us to the town of Korcula.

The whole city of Ston is surrounded by 5,5 km long wall (second longest preserved wall in the world) that reaches from one sea to another creating a man made border and stand-off point for any intruders trying to invade the Peninsula of Peljesac. After walking around the walls, we can visit the ancient salt factory (13.ct) where production still takes place under natural conditions on the same principles it has been running continuously for more than 7 centuries.

After docking just at the entrance of the Old City of Korcula, your guide will introduce you to its rich history, point out on the map its Venetian defensive architecture and 15. ct. street layout and then enter the city through the 18. ct Baroque South gate and walk to the center of the citadel to see the birth-house of Marco Polo and hear the story about this great explorer and his connections to Korcula and the beautiful Cathedral of San Marco – with its tall bell tower resembling a mast of the great stone ship of Korcula when seen from far away.

After the tour, guests have some free time for lunch and than we catch the boat back to the mainland and continue through the wine country of Peljesac stopping at one of the local wineries to try the famous Peljesac red Plavac Mali wine.
