Town of Ston is situated on the narrow isthmus connecting Peljesac peninsula with the mainland.
This little town is often called a smaller copy of Dubrovnik. The magnificent walls surrounding the town are 5 km long. The construction started in 1317 and it took almost 2 centuries to complete one of the longest defensive walls in the world.
The ancient salt pans that were in use during the Dubrovnik Republic are another interesting site along the way. However, when you mention Ston in Croatia people usually think of oyster farms that are all around the area.
Continue with the drive to small village of Draca to taste fresh oysters. Drive to Orebic, then by speedboat accross to Korcula. The city of Korcula is one of the most beautiful medieval towns on the Adriatic coast.
Sightseeing includes a walk along its narrow streets and squares, surrounded by Renaissance palaces, then a visit to the Treasury of the Abbey. After lunch enjoy a relaxing ride back to Dubrovnik along Peljesac Peninsula, and a stop at a local wine-cellar to taste some of the renowned Peljesac wines.
