Tour Kazimierz, the former Jewish district, to see historic synagogues with beautiful stained-glass windows and decorated interiors, as well as an important Jewish cemetery and quiet backstreets. If desired, also tour the former Jewish Ghetto and Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory, immortalized in the film Schindler's List.

One evening, enjoy a concert of music by Polish composers.

One day, take an excursion to Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been in use for 700 years and is filled with sculptures, friezes and chapels that miners have carved from salt.

Next, transfer by private car through farmland and forests to Warsaw. Stop en route in Auschwitz to see one of the most notorious sites of Nazi Germany's genocidal program.

Enjoy flexible private touring in Warsaw, an energetic capital city filled with beautiful parks and a unique architectural legacy. Tour the comprehensive POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and sites associated with Warsaw's once-large Jewish population, such as the Jewish Ghetto, the Jewish cemetery and memorials to the Holocaust. Also tour the Old Town. See the renovated palaces of the embassy district and monuments of Poland's Communist era. Visit the Palace on the Water, surrounded by the beautiful English gardens of Lazienki Park. Walk along the Royal Way, stopping in upscale boutiques and food shops in the reconstructed townhouses lining the boulevard, and perhaps see the unique memorial to Frederic Chopin, a local hero.

Artisans of Leisure can also incorporate other special activities in Poland, such as Polish cooking classes, meeting with Jewish scholars, and researching family history and genealogy.

During private touring with your expert local guide, explore the historic town center, an atmospheric UNESCO World Heritage Site of well-preserved architecture.
