Breach the battlements of Xi’an to discover this ancient walled capital of ten dynasties, gateway to the Silk Road and home of the Terracotta Warriors. You’ll have your Indiana Jones moments amid museums and tombs as you peel back history in this multicultural melting pot.

About this Journey

Xi’an is where China’s first emperor united the warring states of China. One of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Xi’an’s rich tapestry of history was woven together during its time as the capital of no fewer than ten dynasties. The city’s ancient walls and narrow streets hark back to a time when Xi’an was the center of cultural, religious, and economic interaction between the East and West at the eastern end of the Silk Road. From the famous army of life-sized Terracotta Warriors to a museum dubbed the “Treasure Chest of Ancient China,” you’ll delve into China’s illustrious ancient history on this three-day trip.
