Highlights / General details Xi'an is the capital of the Shaanxi province in China. One of the oldest cities in China, with more than 3,100 years of history, the city was known as Chang'an before the Ming Dynasty. Xi'an is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, having held the position under several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history, including Zhou, Qin, Han, Sui, and Tang. Xi'an is the eastern terminus of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army. On this tour you will observe the evolution of China through the ages at the Shaanxi History Museum, where are preserved the greatest treasures of the imperial dynasties. Next you will be treated to the sight of the grand Ancient City Wall and city gates. From the spacious walkway that runs along the top you will have a good aerial view of Xi’an! The tour will then move on to yet more historical milestones in the form of the beautifully decorated Bell Tower and Drum Tower, which mark the centre of the ancient capital with their garish colors and elegant architecture.
