We enjoyed walking around downtown. It is a classic place to walk and see churches and monuments. There are a lot of stores to buy traditional crafts. The Street is made of stones, so war comfortable shoes.

It is possible to do a one day visit to Vilnius from Warsaw. You don't need a transit visa for Belarus either. I got an overnight bus from Warsaw - which arrived in Vilnius at 5am. I had the full day free until 7pm. That was enough time to explore the town. I then got an overnight train back to... More

There are many museums, streets, churches, restaurants, and bars in Old Town Vilnius. The city is quite beautiful, prices are very reasonable, and the streets are clean. You may cover the entire Old Town easily by foot.

The old town is full of good restaurants and bars and interesting little streets and could not find anything to dislike at all

Beautiful old town with cobbled streets, a plethora of interesting churches, many excellent restaurants and bars all within walking distance. Must visit. You can see everything within 3 days. Everything very reasonably priced!

Vilnius is perhaps less known than the other Baltic capitals but the old town seems to have a church around every corner. Most of these are Baroque or Russian Orthodox. The Cathedral is pure neo-classical and St Anne's Church is gothic. Pretty cobbled and narrow streets thread throughout the old town, so difficult on the feet and a disadvantage to... More

I was surprised how many beautiful building are neglected. Second thing was limited selection of restaurants. I hope in a few years Vilnius will be renovated and beautiful because this is the city with big history and worthy to look well.

Definitely could be restored better. There are some houses with worn off facades which does not do good to a place like that. Compared to Riga and Tallinn is a disappointment.

My wife & I have been fortunate to visit many historic European cities but Vilnius takes some beating. Very well maintained, beautiful park, lovely old town, churches not as spectacular as other cities but well worth a two or three day stay. Friendly helpful people, good food & drink, definitely a place to visit.
