There is not much to see except a pile of rubble outside the house. We stayed outside as our guide told us there was nearly nothing to see. The real question to ask is was: has Marco Polo realy stayed there.

If Marco Polo really was born here, then you'll want to see the house, BUT it's not known. On top of this, there is very little of this house to actually see - it's basically just an outside staircase with a bell-tower. If there had been lots of information on display, it may have been worth the money, but we... More

I actually feel stupid and ripped off for paying 20kuna for this. Don't go, you can admire the house from the outside unless you like poking your head through a window and admire a pile of garbage in the ruined house of Marco Polo.

I wish I had listened to the other reviews as I usually do but then I thought that I couldn't come to Korcula and not go to Marco Polo's house could I ? Yes I could have. Firstly nobody explained that the actual house was a ruin visible from the tower and when you go in you pay your 20... More

20kn to walk up a small tower with a good view (the only reason for 2 stars not 1), but to be honest that is it - a few printed pictures of Marco Polo but to be honest nothing else. I don't usually write negative reviews but on this occasion I did feel like it was a bit of a... More

Although it only costs 20 HRK to enter the house it is not worth it. There is not much evidence that Marco Polo ever has lived on the Korcula island and even less that he has lived in this house. However, if that would have been the case they should have done a whole lot more out of this. The... More

I was first at the museum and then had a local show me around the city and spots of Marco Polo, and it was well worth the walk and learning the history of Marco Polo.

We paid 20 kuna each to walk up,the tower of the so- called Marco Polo house. There really is nothing in there! Better to stand outside and take a look at the tower and the decaying structure next to it and imagine what it must have been like in the 13 th century to leave Europe and make such a... More

We thought we were going in Marco Polo Museum, but this is actually only a tower with many steep stairs and some pictures on the wall. So you pay 20 kuna per person for the view. Some even doubt Marco Polo was born here..
