From here make your way to Tian'anmen Square, the world's largest square. Tian'anmen Square owes little to the grand imperial dynasties and everything to the dynasty of Mao Zedong whose tomb resides here. After lunch at a local restaurant, continue on to the Temple of Heaven which UNESCO describes as "a masterpiece of architecture and landscape design."

Toward the end of the afternoon, return to the hotel for a little relaxation, before stepping out for a roast duck dinner at the renowned Quanjude restaurant.

This afternoon, continue on to the Summer Palace, an expansive park-like imperial retreat dating from the Yuan dynasty.

After breakfast at the hotel your Silversea representative will transfer you to the fascinating museum that houses the famous Terra cotta Warriors -silent sentinels, an army of thousands of hand-shaped, life-size terra-cotta warriors who were to be the first Qin emperor's garrison in the afterlife. After the fall of the Qin, the terra cotta army was forgotten and only rediscovered in 1974.
