The easiest way to get here if you’re not traveling far is by bus. Check Lux Express or Ecolines for international routes. If you want to take the scenic route then try the sightseeing bus from Riga that will make stops along the way. It’s a great way to see more than the average visitor.
Vilnius Airport is located a few km outside the city and offers multiple options to get into town. There are two public buses that run to the train station and the bus station. Each ride takes 20 minutes and costs up to €1. The Airport Train will take you to the train station in 8 minutes for less than €1. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket office or on board. Make sure to check the schedule as it runs less frequently than the buses. Mini buses run between the airport and the center and take up to 20 minutes for a price of up to €2 and as always there are taxis that will cost upwards of €20+.
Free walking tours are the best way to get your footing in a city. Walk around Old Town while getting history, local stories and the best tips and visit the Independent Republic of Uzupio.
Or head out of town and explore the rest of Lithuania:
2 – 3 days is perfect
