“One of the best cities I have ever visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

The great thing about Vilnius is that the city has its historic old town, it's castle hill, beautiful cathedral, theatres and modern shopping streets and high quality restaurants all in an amazingly compact space and if you want you can drive right in and park for very modest prices. I am from Winchester, England which has a few attractions of its own, but Vilnius blows it away

“A snowy surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Went to Vilnius for a few days city break during heavy snow. All the transport was running and the paths cleared daily. We stayed on Pilies Gatve so we were in the centre of the old town. It was safe, quiet and had a lovely feel to the city. There are lots of sights to see. We took a bus to Trakai to the castle and it was magical. There is excellent value to be had in gifts and crafts. We were also pleasantly surprised at the very good restaurants and cafes. A lot of people spoke english and were friendly. It was a pleasant change from the usual city break and felt suitably foreign yet familiar. Would really recommend a trip.

“Cozy with some nice architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

There's definitely some great looking churches and buildings in old vilnius, lots of great architecture. Nice to spend a few hours walking around. Better than what we expected, though pretty cold in February! :)

“Good walking shoes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The Old Town is quite extensive and mostly cobblestoned, so good walking shoes are an advantage. Seems like one square opens off another and another. All have very old buildings and interesting histories.
