Full description
The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most treasured monuments in Polish cultural history. Over a million tourists from around the world visit the salt mine yearly to see its exquisite carvings and reliefs. This unique place has been listed on the UNESCO Cultural and Natural World Heritage list since 1978, placing it even higher on tourist's 'to do list.' The miners left in Wieliczka dozens of sculptures and bas-reliefs cut out of the salt, keeping their work alive for many further years.  There are around 800 steps leading down into the mine. After taking around 350 of them you will find yourself at the first floor underground. After the tour, the lift will take you up towards the exit.

We were picked up directly from our hotel as prearranged. Our driver spoke Italian and proved to be very helpful and pleasant; on his return, even if not foreseen in the booking, he still left us at our hotel. The guide inside the Mine spoke perfect Italian and was able to involve those present. Highly recommended tour

The mine is wonderful, it is worth visiting ... the only negative note is that the transport company that gets your guide relies on is not the best ... the driver tells you that as soon as the visit is over you have to go out quickly while in reality there are some halls in the mine where you could stop ... moreover, if you are 5 minutes late because perhaps you are buying a souvenir you will be stormed by calls! Finally, the return is not to the hotel but about a 7-8 minute walk due to the intense traffic ... which can be there but at that point it is not pick up and return to the hotel.

Very nice time. The driver is very polite. The trip was organized in the morning, there were no crowds, sightseeing went smoothly without "traffic jams". On the route in the mine, we additionally went to visit the museum at the end of the route - (about 1 hour). I recommend it! With the preserved ticket from Wieliczka, there is a discount for visiting the graduation towers. Great trip! The speed of the route depends on the guide.
