Point of interest
Our first stop is a town well known for salt production and oyster farming. Ston played a major role in the old Dubrovnik Republic since salt was a precious resource sometimes said to be valued as much as gold. The 5.5-kilometre wall - often referred to as “European Great Wall of China” was constructed to protect the salt pans which are still operating to this day.
Orebić - Korčula Ferry Ride
Relaxing ferry ride takes about 20 min to reach the island of Korčula.
Tour of Korčula
Marko Polos birthplace. Korčula is the sixth largest Croatian island with rich history and archeological finds dating back to the 2nd millennium BC. Its architecture was greatly influenced by Venetian culture because it was under Venetian rule for a long time. Guided tour of the city will pass by the home of Marko Polo, St. Mark’s Cathedral, and the Bishop’s Palace. There is also enough free time to go swimming and/or exploring.
Pelješac Wine Tasting
After the ferry ride back to Pelješac, we stop at a local cellar to taste what this peninsula is best known for - wine. The abundance of sunshine produces high sugar content in grapes and high alcohol content in wine, so be careful when sipping and enjoying some of the best wines Croatia has to offer.
Photo stop (oyster tasting optional)
Before returning to Dubrovnik, we make one short photo break. This area is also famous for oysters; optionally tasting can be arranged for additional charge.
