Vilnius Free Alternative tour is the best way to get a different perspective of Vilnius. If during the Old Town Tour we travel in time and take you back to the medieval Vilnius with its beautiful sites and magnificent churches, the Alternative tour focus on the less known areas of Vilnius that could be hard for a traveler to discover on it’s own.
Throughout the tour, we will take a public bus to the most contrasting area of Vilnius called Šnipiškės. In Šnipiškės abandoned wooden houses and modern skyscrapers are just meters away from each other. To feel the contrast better, we will reach the modern city center to admire the panoramic views from the top floor of the highest skyscraper in Lithuania.
It is very likely that all those areas will change completely in a few years, so don’t miss an opportunity to be a witness of these changes and let us take you to most contrasting and undiscovered places of Vilnius.
Wear comfortable shoes; Get in a good mood, and join the alternative tour to gain an authentic insight into Vilnius outside the tourist trail.
