What to expect

The John Paul II route tour covers the most important places connected with the pope. The main attractions are the John Paul the II Museum, established in the pope's family home, the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska (listed at UNESCO) and the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Krakow. This full-day tour by minivan with an English-speaking driver is a private tour, while a maximum of 15 people can enter the museum.

Meet the driver at your accommodation in Krakow and then begin the hour-long trip to Wadowice, Pope John Paul II's hometown in southern Poland.

Make the first stop of the day at the John Paul II Family Museum, established in the Pope's family home. Enjoy a series of interactive exhibits that follow his life year by year, from his early childhood through his time as a student, the Second World War experience, his period as a priest and, finally, the attempt against his life.

After roughly two hours in Wadowice, continue to the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska Sanctuary, the second most frequently-visited pilgrimage sanctuary in Poland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll have about an hour in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska Sanctuary. Now head to the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy and the John Paul II center in Łagiewniki. You'll see some of the pope's relics alongside those of St. Faustyna Kowalska, who was canonized by John Paul II and you'll discover the impressive basilica consecrated by John Paul II in 2012. This full-day tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.
