Before visiting the Marco Polo Museum in Korcula, we visited the house where people from Korcula say that Marco Polo was born. There is some controversy over whether he was born in Korcula or in Venice. It was very interesting to visit the house and...More

Its not so easy to find and not worth the effort apart from the fact that its a bit of a vantage point for a view over the old city. There is nothing there of note and did Marco really live there??? He must have...More

You pay, walk up some steps and look out from the top. That's it. There is almost nothing to see. The bell tower is better.

I actually feel stupid and ripped off for paying 20kuna for this. Don't go, you can admire the house from the outside unless you like poking your head through a window and admire a pile of garbage in the ruined house of Marco Polo.

I wish I had listened to the other reviews as I usually do but then I thought that I couldn't come to Korcula and not go to Marco Polo's house could I ? Yes I could have. Firstly nobody explained that the actual house was...More
