From the hill of Three Crosses in the Lithuanian capital, admire the baroque architecture and cobblestone streets of the quaint Old Town below. Pair a trip to Vilnius with a spa hotel retreat, complete with saunas, indoor pools and world-class tennis courts.
Put simply, the Hotel Pacai is the place to immerse your mind, body and soul. Hydrating treatments and customised facials are some of the spa highlights. There are over 10 different types of massages available, from a vigorous sports rub to the trademark Symphony of the Stones. Afterwards, relax in the dry-air hammam or take a spin in the fitness room. All of this is housed within a historic mansion, brimming with architectural curiosities from days gone by.
Luxury is the name of the game at the lavish Imperial Hotel & Restaurant in Vilnius. This is no ordinary hotel. Sting, Enrique Iglesias and Paul van Dyk are just some of the well-known guests who have stayed here. They’ve even won awards for their fine dining restaurant. Work off that extravagant meal in the onsite gym, followed by a session in the spa with its bubbling jacuzzi.
Sport and leisure fans will feel at home at the Urbihop Hotel, which is located in the same building as the SEB Arena, the largest indoor tennis complex in the Baltics. Reserve a spot on the court or work out in the truly enormous gym followed by a Thai massage in the spa. Upstairs, trendy rooms are individually designed – with twins, doubles and family suites available.
Unwind at the cosy Amberton Hotel in central Vilnius, overlooking Cathedral Square. Touring the city has never been easier, thanks to the free onsite GoGreen scooter. Treat yourself to a massage or a body scrub where the fusion of water, salt, oils and organic herbs will help rejuvenate aching muscles. Top it off with a craft beer or herbal tea in the bar zone.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
