Day 1Fly to Vilnius, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your centrally-located hotel. Upon arrival, you'll have some time to settle in and freshen up, then you're free to spend the rest of the day exploring the Lithuanian capital. Vilnius boasts an UNESCO-listed Old Town, elegant Baroque churches and a host of lively bars, cafes and restaurants.
Day 2This morning's included guided tour of Vilnius reveals the city's major sights. Marvel at the piercing towers of the Gothic Church of St Anne, see the Presidential Palace and the Royal Palace, and pass the city's 400-year-old university. You'll also visit the Christmas market in Cathedral Square, where you can pick up handcrafted goods and indulge in sumptuous festive foods.
This afternoon you'll have the chance to join our optional excursion to Trakai, to see its 14th-century turreted castle that perches on an island in Lake Galve. Complete your day with an optional folklore evening at a local restaurant, or choose to dine out at your leisure.
Day 3Choose to spend some free time in Vilnius today, further exploring its quaint Christmas markets, or join our optional day trip to Kaunas, Lithuania's second city. This riverside gem boasts some beautiful architecture, a pretty Old Town and some wonderfully-restored historic sites, as well as a charming Christmas market of its own.
