The city is unique with its huge fortress walls with bastions, its stairways and the old center of countless monuments. The entire historic center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. At the end of the afternoon you go by ferry to the island of Korcula, the birthplace of the famous world traveler Marco Polo.

Day 5 - Day off or...?

Are you taking a day off today or do you make the crossing to the mainland after breakfast? Orebic used to be the center of shipping and a beloved residence of many sea captains and ship owners. They had the most beautiful villas built that give the city a charming appearance. Just outside Orebic, on a hilltop, lies the 15th-century Franciscan monastery "Gospa od Angela". Just the view, on the coast and inland of Korcula, is more than worth the hike up. The chapel church of the monastery was established to protect the sailors from shipping disasters.
