Spend the day exploring Korčula, a medieval walled town on an island of the same name. From Dubrovnik, travel to the seaside vineyard-laden town of Orebić where you’ll board a boat and be ferried across the Adriatic to the verdant island of Korčula. Known as the birthplace of explorer Marco Polo, Korčula is a well-preserved walled town that’s worthy of exploration. See the Venetian-influenced St Mark’s Cathedral, check out some Renaissance-era palaces and lounge at an outdoor cafe, sipping coffee or local wine.

  • During free time, enjoy lunch and take a swim in the Mediterranean
  • Drive through the wine region in the peninsula of Peljesac
  • Explore a local wine cellar
  • Transport by coach and boat

What You Can Expect

Island of Korcula with Wine Tasting Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Enjoy the sights of this day trip and have a taste of Croatia's best wines!

From Dubrovnik, head to prettied-up Korčula, a walled town (and island of the same name) that is renowned for its medieval seaside aesthetics and laid-back style of life among the locals. Board a bus in Dubrovnik and enjoy cruising through rustic fishing villages along the Adriatic and be sure to not miss the town of Ston with its miles of medieval walls before reaching the seaside town of Orebić. 

Board a boat and enjoy some time admiring the glimmering Adriatic Sea during the short trip to the island. Once there, begin a walking tour of the medieval town of Korčula, learning about its history and even seeing the town where the medieval explorer, perhaps humanity’s most famous traveler, Marco Polo supposedly lived. 

Pop into St Mark’s Cathedral and don’t be surprised if you feel like you’re in a canal-less Venice. Korčula was once part of the Venetian Empire, so it’s no coincidence the two towns share a similar aesthetic. 

Enjoy some free time to sip a glass of local wine or coffee at an outdoor cafe, take a dip in the sea or just continue walking the streets. 

On the way back to Dubrovnik, stop at a local winery on the Peljesac peninsula to sample some vino from this up-and-coming wine region.

The trip to the island was very good and we stopped at another town with walls (Ston) on the way to the island. The wine tasting was fine, but rather short and at the end of the trop.

We wanted to get to Korcula for a day. This was the perfect solution as opposed to a 14 hour day using the ferry. We got picked up from our hotel at 8, had an informative guide and good bus driver, over 3 hours in Korcula and some wine tasting on the way back. Very relaxing and back in Dubrovnik before 6. Highly recommended if you are short of time.

Comfortable, clean tour bus. The tour bus and the Korcula guides were both extremely knowledgeable of their respective sites. There was ample time between stops and on Korcula for solo exploring. The wine tasting stop was fantastic. Highly recommend the tour.
Thank you for a memorable experience.

We had an extra day in Dubrovnik and wanted to get out and about without renting a car and etc. Viator's Korcula day trip was perfect for us. Reasonably priced and well-regarded, we were picked up at our hotel on-time and driven - via a comfortable bus - through the beautiful Croatian countryside. We stopped at the small but interesting village of Ston for a coffee stop and then proceeded on our way to take the ferry to the island. Our guide was knowledgable and attentave, but gave us plenty of time to wander around on our own and have personal time. The stop at the winery on the way back to Dubrovnik was a nice end to the trip.
