Your Base: Hotels in Krakow

Krakow is not a museum piece, but a bustling, lived-in city. It is especially lively in the evening, when it offers up a wide and enticing choice of foods, from traditional Polish, Russian, German, Lithuanian and Jewish dishes to some of the latest culinary fads and fashions. And your city-centre hotel will offer you the perfect base from which to explore.

Krakow City Break Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Poland from the UK

Fly to Krakow, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your city-centre hotel. After check-in, head out to take your first look at this city that boasts the State Rooms of Wawel Castle, the stunning wooden altarpiece of the Mariacki church and the treasures of the Czartoryski Palace. Why not head to a cafe for hot chocolate, or to a local beer cellar to try the local brew?

Day Two: Included Krakow city tour

Discover Krakow on our included guided walking tour. This seat of Polish kings was also the former home of much-loved Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II). Admire the medieval and Renaissance splendour of the city's great central square, Rynek Glowny, and its centrepiece the Sukiennice (Cloth Hall).

Here, behind the many-arched facade, you'll find market stalls to browse, cafes where you can sit and relax, and even an art gallery on the upper floor.

Day Three: Included day trip to Auschwitz

Today we'll head to Auschwitz-Birkenau, 70km southwest of the city. On this harrowing and thought-provoking pilgrimage you'll tour the buildings of the death camp and gain a sense of the horrors of the "Final Solution".

Later we'll return to Krakow and you'll be free to explore. Visit the Kazimierz quarter - once the historic centre of Jewish culture in the city - or the 'Pharmacy under the Eagle' museum across the river in the Podgorze district - the cramped wartime ghetto.

Day Four: Optional salt mine excursion

Today you're free to discover more of the city's sights, or to join an optional excursion to see the vast underground chambers, full-sized chapel and stupendous concert hall of Wieliczka's astonishing salt mine. Find out about life in the mines at the on-site museum, and browse the subterranean gift shop and cafe before catching the lift back to the surface.

Day Five: Fly back to the UK

Depending on your flight time, you may have time to catch a final glimpse of the majestic city before we transfer you to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Sandwich Single traveller
The locality, buildings and excursions were great.
The hotel was basic, beautifully clean. I had looked up on-line to check meals served in hotel as I was travelling by myself and didn't wish to be looking for somewhere to eat at night. On arrival meals (apart from breakfast) were no longer available. I spoke to another woman travelling by herself who had done the same. I understand that the hotel to which other travellers had gone for the same holiday had more facilities. I was not given a choice of hotels. Trundling suitcases through Krakow (because of roadworks) was not much fun and would it have been possible to provide some sort of trolley service?
When I asked help from the tour manager she turned her back and walked away. By the time we got to the hotel on arrival there was no tour manager and we had to settle ouselves in. Neither was she there at the end to make sure we were OK for the flight. She didn@t do a lot in between apart from sit on the coach. Disappointing.
