What to Expect
Experience the many faces of this bewitching city on a Vilnius tour that takes in the modern and ancient neighborhoods, historic sights, and new landmarks. A charming local will be your guide as you uncover the many stories that make up modern day Vilnius.
Vilnius’ Old Town is a fascinating fusion of Lithuanian, Jewish, Polish, and Russian cultures, evident in the churches, shops, cuisines, and religions that populate the area. Wander the cobblestone streets and imagine what life was like centuries ago when this was a thriving medieval town. Stop in at St Anne's Church, which, while small, is the church that Napoleon visited and wanted to take home with him!
Next, experience the hip, bohemian vibe of Uzupis, an independent district favored by artists, musicians and free-spirited travelers. The district calls itself Independent Republic of Uzupis and even has its own President, Premier, Constitution and Independence Day, celebrated on April 1st (April Fools’ Day).
Gritty street art, colorful cafes, vibrant murals, interesting locals, and galleries brimming with paintings make this place a popular spot for photographers, so don't forget your camera! Here you’ll be able to snap the bizarre sights and unique wonders that make Uzupis so extraordinary.
Once you’re well acquainted with Uzupis, we’ll head back into the Old Town and finish this Vilnius tour the best way - by savoring some traditional Lithuanian delicacies and a local beer (or non-alcoholic drink for the kids) from small local breweries.
At the end of the tour of Vilnius, feel free to ask for your guide's advice about other points of interest or good local pubs or restaurants that are not to be missed.
