Your tour begins in your hotel lobby, where you'll meet your private-guide and set off on foot toward the UNESCO-listed Old Town of Vilnius. With more than 1,200 medieval buildings and some 48 churches, Vilnius is a dreamscape for architecture enthusiasts. Baroque-style buildings feature most prominently in this area, though remarkable examples of Gothic and Renaissance architecture are also found in the district. During your walking tour, you'll visit Vilnius Cathedral, the Lower Castle and Upper Castle (host to Gediminas Tower), St. Anne's Church (the 16th century masterpiece of Gothic architecture), the Old University (the oldest University in Eastern Europe), Pilies Street, which is the best place to find local gift and souvenir shops, as well as the Gates of Dawn, which houses a holy image of the Virgin Mary that is believed by some to have miraculous powers. After a few hours exploring wondrous Vilnius, you will be escorted back to your hotel to conclude the tour.
