Overnight: Hotel Marko Polo
Travel by private boat from Hvar Town to Vela Luka on Korčula Island for a day of biking.
Set on a tiny peninsula on the Pelješac channel, Korčula was first home to Slavic pirates who used the island as a base from which to attack passing ships; in the year 1000 it was taken over by Venice, marking the start of an 800-year on-and-off Venetian rule.
Today, the island is renowned for its gorgeous, white quarried stone, countless secluded bays, small, uninhabited islands and breathtaking views.
Make a stop in Smokvica to enjoy lunch as a group. Explore several small villages on today’s ride, which culminates in the medieval walled town of Korčula, whose Old Quarter boasts a harmonious mix of 15th century Gothic and 16th century Renaissance trimmings.
Visit the home of Marco Polo, Saint Mark’s Cathedral with paintings by Tintoretto, the Town Museum, and the Byzantine Icon Museum.
Feast on some fresh and authentic Croatian seafood tonight at Restaurant Riblji.
