So what if the euro is up and the dollar is down?That doesn’t mean you should skip a trip to Europe. You can still find great deals, even in pricey places. On Croatia's Dalmatian Coast, the secret is simple: knowing where the bargains are. Skip the overexposed island of Hvar for the walled medieval village on the Adriatic island of Korcula, purported home to Marco Polo. Korcula is more of a day-trip destination, and that means the tourist crowds thin considerably by sundown, leaving those who remain to relax in the cafés, stroll the narrow alleys, and enjoy the easygoing life of the old town.
