Welcome and transfer to hotel.
Guided city tour along the Royal Way, which links the Old Town with some of the most notable institutions in Warsaw. Our walk begins at the Column of the King Zygmunt III Waza and the Royal Castle, which was built in the 14th century as a wooden fortress for the Dukes of Mazovia. Not far from this is the church of Saint Anna which was founded in the 15th century by the wife and mother of the Mazovian princes and named after her patron saint. Climb the Bell Tower to see a panoramic view. Walk along the difficult-to-pronounce Krakowskie Przedmieście Street. This is one of the most impressive and prestigious streets of Warsaw. On the way you will see the Carmelite Church which has the earliest example of a classical facade in Poland, and many more interesting sites. In the afternoon, walk through an attractive part of Warsaw to see the Saxon, Kazimierz, and Czapski Palaces. Visit the Sister of the Visitation Church and trace Chopin along Miodowa Street, at Krasiński Square, the Saxon Post Office, and many other places the composer frequented. (B)
