Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: VšĮ Vilniaus rotušė, Didžioji g. 31, Vilnius 01128, Lithuania

Meet your guide next to the first of three main Vilnius’ Christmas trees outside the Town Hall to begin your Vilnius Christmas adventure. We’ll start with a cranberry pap or strong apple juice to welcome you to our city. Then we’ll wander around the vibrant Christmas market in the authentic medieval local market square, admiring the handicraft stalls and pretty light illuminations, chatting about Lithuanian Christmas traditions.
Feeling peckish? Immerse yourself in a traditional poppy seed milk-making session at a family-owned restaurant and find out about the many traditions that surround Christmas Eve dinner in Lithuania. Together we’ll taste the milk with kūčiukai – small crunchy cookies made of yeasted dough with poppy seeds. As we much, you’ll learn some Lithuanian words and how to pronounce them, to help you navigate the city.

Duration: 1 hour 50 minutes

Stop At: Vilnius Cathedral Square, Vilnius 01143 Lithuania

Next up, we’ll pop into an authentic (and tiny) Baltic ethno shop to see, touch and smell their locally-made incense sticks and candles, plus lots of other unique goodies that make for wonderful and unique Christmas presents for friends and family back home.
We’ll visit the most beautiful and brightest Christmas tree in the heart of the city and as we gaze up in wonder, your guide will tell stories about all things December 25th in Vilnius and the rest of Lithuania – when did it all begin, how the trees are/were decorated, old traditions vs new etc. Hopefully, you’ll be well and truly feeling the Christmas spirit by now.
We’ll hot another Christmas market now, chatting to friendly vendors and trying the special Christmas treats. If you’re interested in purchasing anything, your guide can help with the all-important bargaining process!
Your tour will end at the last Christmas market stop, hopefully with you and your party in full Christmas swing, feeling festive and singing Christmas carols! Your guide will give you a small, edible Christmas gift to take home, because it wouldn’t be Christmas without gift-giving! Feel free to continue to wander around the market or your guide can advise on the best way to get back to your accommodation. Before you go, don’t forget to ask for more tips on what else to see, do and eat while you’re in town.
