Full description
On the first day, meet your guide in the centre of Krakow. Walk through the roads of the city and the historic centre, seeing all the main sights. You will pass through the main road of the city, Florianska Street, to arrive at the Market Square which is one of the largest and most fascinating in Europe. See the gothic church of Santa Maria Assunta and the textiles of the Sukiennice Market. From the square, stroll along Grodzka Road to Wawel Castle. Just under Wawel Castle, enjoy a traditional lunch at a local reastaurant. After lunch, visit the Jewish quarter of Krakow, known as Kazimierz. Throughout the tour, your guide will relay the history of the city from the Middle Ages to the time of German occupation.

On the second day, depart from the city centre to reach the concentration camp of Auschwitz and Birkenau. This part of the tour will last 4 hours. The visit of Auschwitz I includes entry to the most significant places of the camp. After a short break, you will move to Birkenau, the second and the largest of the two locations where a huge number of shacks and barracks show the true scale of the horrors committed at the site.

Following this, journey towards Wieliczka Salt Mine. This part of the tour lasts approximately three hours. Descend into an underground path three kilometers long. Explore the tunnels containing amazing rock salt sculptures. See spectacular underground lakes, and various constructions made from the salt within the mines.
