What you can expect

Tour Vilnius with the expertise and flexibility of a private guide, admiring a variety of Catholic churches before venturing into the dynamic city centre. Vilnius is a Baroque jewel, bursting with architectural styles and emanating romantic ambiance from more than 1,500 historic buildings.

Begin your walking tour at Gediminas Tower, rising from the prominent Castle Hill above Old Town. Continue on to see a variety of Catholic churches with ornate façades and colonnades, austere Protestant churches with high spires and Orthodox cathedrals with rich decoration and onion-shaped cupolas – all contributing to the city centre's status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. With the benefit of a private guide, spend as much or as little time in any one place as you please.

The other side of the Vilnia River is home to the Uzupis artists' quarter, offering a panoramic view of Vilnius from near the Artillery Bastion. Despite its stately aura, Vilnius is a centre of modern culture, serving as Lithuania's main university city and the European Cultural Capital of 2009, a designation from the European Union that marks Vilnius as a centre of modern European culture. These honours reflect its young, lively and dynamic energy, playing host to colourful fairs, theatre performances and festivals.

Re-enter the city centre through the walls at the Gate of Dawn. Soak up the pastel façades, ancient churches and cobblestone streets as your guide presents fascinating details about the many unique sights.
