Full description
Follow in the footsteps of Pope John Paul II on a 6-hour trip from Krakow. Begin with a hotel pickup and then head to the place where Pope John Paul II was born. Enjoy a guided tour of the location in Wadowice, now a revered museum. Try the famous Kremówki whipped-cream-filled cakes and begin to understand why they were the Pope's favorite delicacy. 

Next, visit the magnificent 17th-century monastery on the hill in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, where John Paul II spoke his famous motto on a pilgrimage to his homeland: "I belong entirely to you, and all that I have is yours. I take you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart". To finish off the tour, visit the spectacular Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, where you'll get a chance to see the relics of St. Faustyna Kowalska within the beautiful and unique interior of the basilica. See where Pope John Paul II prayed everyday during World War II and learn more about the history with the help of guidebooks.
