Take a drive to the infamous Nazi extermination camp located in Oświęcim (Auschwitz), to start your 3.5–hour tour of the museum. Visit all permanent exhibitions and buildings at Auschwitz I and the most significant original buildings at Auschwitz II Birkenau: the prisoner barracks, the unloading platform, the ruins of the gas chamber and crematoria.

Meet your driver and fellow travellers again and drive to Wieliczka. Before sightseeing the Salt Mine, take a lunch break for roughly 1.5 hours, and, if you choose, dine at one of the best traditional Polish restaurants in the town of Wieliczka.
