Visit Polish Versailles on private Warsaw city tour
After the Warsaw city tour (where you can admire palaces and pavilions, drive along Royal Route, walk in the Old Town - a site on the UNESCO cultural heritage list - see the houses where Madame Curie was born and where Chopin lived) - and after lunch, we will drive to the suburbs of Warsaw to visit the interior of Wilanow Palace built in the 17th century by king Sobieski who defeated the Turks in the battle of Vienna. Later belonging to aristocrat families, the palace became one of the very first museums in Poland.
This splendid Baroque palace (often called Polish Versailles) survived all wars, so you can still see its original interiors and stroll in its charming park in English and Italian style.
After meeting you at your hotel, we shall drive along historical part of the city: Royal Route, where you can see former palaces, some turned into embasies, we stop at the monument to Frederic Chopin and former White House from XVIII c. , view Polish parliament, enter Lazienki Park with summer residence of our last king (picturesque Palace on Water) and other palaces and pavilions.
From there we drive to suburbs to see interior of 17 c. baroque Wilanow palace with its original interiors belonging to king Jan Sobieski famous for relief of Viena, stroll in beautiful park in Italian and English style and eventually stop there for lunch.
Come back to the town to cross Vistula River to see National Stadium at Prague site, old streets remembered from famous films, then to see Unknown Soldier's Tomb, where changing the guards takes place every hour, Great Theatre (opera and ballet house), then former Jewish ghetto quarter with its memorials, and finish at Old Town (the UNESCO site) painstakingly rebuilt after WWII.

Renata is a very good Guide. She knows her Warsaw. She modified the tour to fit our needs. My brother was with us and he has special needs. she was very accommodating! She took us into two Palaces that where not on the intinary which was my request. We had a great time! I would hire Renata again!
