What you can expect

Walk in the footsteps of Pope John Paul II on this tour of Krakow and Wadowice, his childhood home in the Beskidy Mountains. Discover the churches and universities where he grew up, and listen as your guide reveals how he rose through the ranks of the Catholic clergy to become Archbishop of Krakow.

John Paul II, otherwise known as Karol Wojtyla, spent 40 years in and around Krakow, and it remained a place close to his heart. Begin your tour with a visit Lagiewniki, located south of Krakow's historic Old Town. Make a stop at the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki. The sanctuary has become a popular place of the first saint of the Third Millennium. Explore the beautiful modern basilica consecrated by the pope in 2002, as your guide provides historical commentary and anecdotes. Visit the “Have No Fear!” John Paul II Centre - a cenre in Lagiewniki dedicated to the life and work of Pope John Paul II, which also houses his relic: an ampoule with his blood. Next head through the Beskidy Mountains to Wadowice, the town where the Pope was born. Visit his family house and parish church dating back to the 15th century. Next, afterwards, head to the Sanctuary in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1999. Finally, visit John Paul's last residence before departing for the Vatican, the Archbishop's Palace. There, take a look at the famed papal window, where large crowds stood in prayer and lit candles during his final days. Your 6 1/2-hour tour will conclude with drop-off back at your original departure point.
