Vilnius boasts an UNESCO-listed Old Town, elegant Baroque churches and a host of lively bars, cafes and restaurants.

This morning's included guided tour of Vilnius reveals the city's major sights.

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.
