Description

Following collection from your hotel, relax while your expert local guide drives you to Wadowice, the hometown of Karol Wojtyla, better known as John Paul II. Explore this charming, small town that was a great influence on the Polish Pope – he called it ‘the place where it all began’. Begin your journey on Wadowice’s historic town square, pausing at the memorial plaques commemorating the Pope's pilgrimages to more than 100 countries. Then take a guided tour to the picturesque Parish Church, as well as the house where John Paul II was born. During a coffee break you will be able to try 'kremowka' - the Pope's favorite cake. On return to Krakow take a break in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, a town visited several times by the Pope during his pilgrimages. The place is famous for its Roman Catholic monastery and the trails of the Passion of Christ modeled on the Calvary outside the city walls of Jerusalem.
