Food Tour in Vilnius Old Town
With a fascinating fusion of Jewish, Polish, Italian, and Russian influences, Vilnius is a cultural feast of architectural and culinary proportions. Get lost in the narrow streets of the Old Town Vilnius while sampling tasty treats and bold brews from specialty food shops, cafes, and bars along the way! Does it get any better than that?
There are very few European capitals that can truly be described as hidden treasures, but Vilnius is certainly one of them. Its distinct architectural character and cultural richness shine bright despite the scars of Soviet rule. The oldest Baltic state, Lithuania also has deep culinary traditions, well known for their simple yet delicious dishes.
We begin our delicious Vilnius walking tour in the heart of Baroque, Gothic masterpiece of Vilnius Old Town - Cathedral Square. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with a signs of other European capitals but in more compact, walkable size!
From the grand Cathedral Square, we will take a stroll to discover some local Lithuanian culinary delights. On our way, we will discuss the fascinating history of Vilnius past and present.
Have you ever tasted acorn coffee or tried cold pink soup? Well now’s your chance! As we go from shop to deli, from café to bar, you will get a taste of Lithuania’s contribution to international cuisine. Although our stews are to-die-for, take note of the main deli-traction - the abundance of specialty smoked/dried meats and poultry.
After celebrating the culinary traditions of medieval to modern Vilnius, you’ll likely want to revisit your favorite era after the tour. Make sure to ask your local guide for advice on other authentic bites and sites not to be missed. But be warned, you’ll want to take some time to walk off the feast you’ve just devoured.

I have just finished the Flavours of Vilnius tour with Vilija and have nothing but positive things to say.
