Marco Polo House misleads the visitor; a nearby historical marker proclaims (in small letters): "Marco Polo, the famous medieval figure, explorer, traveler and travel writer. The place of his birth is not recorded in the historical sources, but the year of his birth is known,...More

We knew we had the right place when we saw a few gondolas stopping here to let people take photos. There is not much here to see except a very plain building with a sign "Marco Polo Casa". We were glad to stop for a...More

There was no house or anything that resembled a place that was once inhabited by a human being. It was simply a long, winding and narrow climb of stairs that will take you to the top. There you will be greeted by a spectacular view...More

Visited here without checking TripAdvisor reviews. I have to say I agree with majority of reviewers that this is a very grubby attraction. The views are good from here, but not as impressive as from The Bell Tower. The guide book we were using talked...More

Marco Polo was not born here. Basically just a staircase with nothing else for 20 HRK, not worth it.

I'm not going to lie, it was dissapointing. We paid 20 Kuna's each and spent 10min there. It's sad that the entrance fee's from the many tourist are definitely not being used to maintain this place. Not sure if I will recommend this. Maybe buy...More
