An independent Baltic state with a long and colorful history...

Independent once again and a member of NATO and the European Union, Lithuania – with Vilnius as its capital – is a popular destination in the Baltic region; visit its Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its impressive collection of Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque architecture.

"I write this letter with pleasure to tell you what an exciting and informative trip to the Baltics was for me. It was the 8th tour I have taken with Tauck, all of them wonderful… this one was perhaps the best. Everything was perfect beginning with a truly caring tour director. Thank you for the superb hotels, meals, local guides, and an outstanding itinerary."
