Cruising north to Mljet Island, you’ll be able to explore its renowned national park, home to two saltwater lakes in dazzling shades of emerald and turquoise framed by lush greenery. Enjoy the views, which include a tiny islet in the middle of Great Lake that houses an ancient Benedictine monastery, before we continue on to our next island, Korcula. Most well-known as the birthplace of famous explorer Marco Polo, it was named Melaina Korkyra, or ‘Black Corfu’ by Greek colonists in the 6th-century BC because of its dense pine forests, so dark it almost appeared black. Our inspirational local guide will lead you on a walking tour through the Old Town, surrounded by thick stone defensive walls and towers built in medieval times. Note the many glimpses of its Venetian past like the Lions of St. Mark before enjoying time to dine on traditional local cuisine in one of the many outstanding eateries.
