Private Warsaw Tour: Raised from the ashes


This is an extended option of the Warsaw city tour.

After visiting Lazienki park, where you can admire palaces and pavilions, then driving along Royal Route, walking in the Old Town - a site on the UNESCO cultural heritage list, seeing the houses where Madame Curie was born and where Chopin lived, we will stop in one of Old Town small cafés for lunch where you can savor Polish typical food, then visit Royal Castle, which although rebuilt in '70s, shows a lot of miraculously saved original paintings, furniture and objects of art. This is where Polish kings lived, where sessions of Parliament took place, and where now you can see Rembrandt's paintings and other precious masterpieces.
