As we enter the heart of the Adriatic archipelago, we’ll call at the island of Korcula, where Marco Polo, the great explorer and adventurer, resided and may actually have been born, although that’s not clear. Go ashore for a walking tour of the cobblestoned center, including a visit to the Korcula City Museum, which occupies a former palace. Cultural Connection: Enjoy a presentation about the delicate branching corals that grow in pristine Adriatic waters, and see how they’re used to form elegant jewelry. Active Opportunity: Stay ashore for the afternoon and do further exploring on your own, including longer walks.
Cultural Connections: Later this afternoon, enjoy a fascinating lecture about the once-powerful city-state known as the Dubrovnik Republic. Afterwards, enjoy a tasting of local wines at a local wine bar, before dinner aboard ship.
