Warsaw Old Town 3 hours on foot

Warsaw, the capital of Poland, tells the story of rebirth. Almost completely destroyed during World War II, it was rebuilt as an act of determination and resilience. Today, the city again features fine views of the Castle Square, the Royal Castle, and the King Sigismund's Column.

 Our guided walking tour will take you to Warsaw’s renowned Castle Square, filled with street artists, and dotted with small cafes and shops in beautifully rebuilt gothic mansions of Warsaw’s nobility. Here you can see the Sigismund’s Column, built to honor King Sigismund III Vasa, who moved Poland’s capital from Krakow to Warsaw in the 17th-century.

The tour includes a visit to the Royal Castle, which boasts one of the most magnificent art collections of the city, including famous views of Warsaw by Bellotto, the nephew and student of the famous Venetian painter Canaletto.

Bellotto was the court painter to Poland’s last King, Stanislaw August Poniatowski. His paintings of Warsaw had a massive documentary value as they were used as a blueprint for the reconstruction of historical buildings of the capital after World War II.
