During your 3 hour tour led by an art historian guide, you will visit the inner courtyard of the RMO National Antiquities Museum, see the full size Egyptian temple and then proceed to the exhibition spaces: Egyptian, Roman, Dutch objects of world class. Afterwards, take a walk in town and see the hidden man-made mound with a fortress. You may also enter one of the largest churches and according to your taste, visit one more museum or the botanic garden.

Meet your professional experienced guide at 10:15am, and start your tour in the inner courtyard of the central courtyard of the RMO Museum of Antiquities. This hall opens at 10am every day except on Mondays. Your guide will tell you stories of how art objects functioned in the cultures of Greece, Rome and during Dutch prehistory. He will also explain the manner of acquiring these magnificent art objects. 

Enjoy a little coffee break inside the museum hall or outside in the old cafes in the city center (on your own expense). Then move on to the interesting old center of Leiden with  Rembrandt's Latin School and the huge church with the Pilgrim Fathers monuments. Continue to the historic City and discover an edifice which may be hidden from your view: a 'motte' castle. This is a medieval man-made mound of earth with a defense castle on the top.

After a good lunch bite (cost not included), you may make your choice of ONE of the great local museums: Seventeenth Century paintings in the Lakenhal; Medical history in the Boerhaave museum or to see extensive exhibitions of world cultures in the Ethnology (Volkenkunde) museum. Alternatively, if a large quiet garden is preferred, you can also visit the Botanical garden. All of these institutions are rooted in the age-old Leiden University centered on Rapenburg Canal.
