The tour lasts about 7 hours, but the road takes a lot of time. The buses are very comfortable, you can sleep on the road. There is a shop, cafe and toilets near the museum. But it is better to take food and water with you, because the breaks during the day are 15 minutes.

Not the best place for an excursion with children. The museum and its history are shocking. But everyone should visit it, it is very important to know our history. The guide in the museum very delicately and tolerantly explained all the information to us. In some places, tears rolled over my eyes.

Had an interesting trip today to Auschwitz, although it was extremely cold I think this made us feel and get the real experience. The guide however was rushing and wasn't always waiting for the rest members of the group. But our driver who is also a guide, Francesco, was amazing and very kind with us. Very informative and willing to show you around.
