Departure Time

9:00 AM
Await pickup at your Krakow accommodation between 8:30am and 9:30am — the exact pickup time is confirmed closer to the tour date. After a 1-hour journey to Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope John Paul II, you’ll take a sightseeing tour of the pretty town and learn about the early life of the Catholic figure.

Then, proceed to Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, which sits at the foothills of the rugged Carpathian Mountains, to visit its Baroque 17th-century sanctuary. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its architectural beauty, the basilica is considered the second most important religious site in Poland after the Black Madonna.     

Your third stop is the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, home to the tomb of St. Faustina, who saw a vision of Jesus in 1931. Admire the white marble coffin and religious art, and opt to ascend to the top of the church’s tower for spectacular city views.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Krakow accommodation at around 4pm.

, Jul 2016
The JPII and Divine Metcy and Kalwaria sites were very good, but our driver was doing this tour for the first time and did not offer any commentary of anything on our 1+ hour. We had to tell him where to go. He did not know enough to do this Catholic tour. Go thru your hotel not Viatour.
