This city is the 700-year-old political and cultural capital of Poland. A sightseeing tour here includes a drive along the famous Royal Route from grand Castle Square to Lazienki Park and Palace, and past the summer residence of the last king of Poland. We'll see the Palace of Science and Culture (known as a “wedding cake”), the Saxon Gardens, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Monument to the Heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto, and the Barbican. Then we'll embark on a walking tour of the Old Town passing the Old Market Square, and St. John’s Cathedral. Next, we'll visit a chocolate factory, for a tour and for some sampling. You can taste some hot chocolate, cocoa beans and three different kinds of chocolate bars. You then have a chance to concoct your very own chocolate bar and take it home as a souvenir. The rest of the day will be free.
