Very good driving. The house of dad Giovanni paolo2 beautiful museum. Then there are 3 sanctuaries to see, the most interesting being the sanctuary of the Faustine nun and the new sanctuary dedicated to Giovanni paolo2. Let's say that in a short time there are many things to see. Then the shrines are unguided. Overall a wonderful experience even for those who are not great practitioners

Everything perfect with Piotr

Exciting tour, to do for those who loved Pope Wojtyla and want to know more about his life. Our escort Piotr (Pietro) Gola was fantastic! Very punctual, friendly and company, she answered all our curious questions about life in Poland and its traditions. We recommend the tour and above all we recommend Piotr !!!!

The museum was excellent and it was wonderful to see where st John Pau

Thought the cost of the taxi also included entry to museum and so felt we were overcharged for our trip out there but otherwise it was excellent.
