Full description
Starting from Vilnius the tour will take you to the north of Lithuania where you will find Siauliai city and the famous Hill of Crosses. Siauliai is the fourth largest city in Lithuania.   During the drive through the center, there will be a chance to see the famous Frenkel Villa, Church of St. Peter and Paul and meet the Millenium Fox and Golden Archer of the Sundial.  The famous Hill of Crosses will be your next stop, where the Pope John Paul II held the most highly attended mass in our country – during his visit to Lithuania in 1993. This old mound from the days of the crusaders has been decorated with thousands of crosses in every imaginable size and form. This has always been, as it is now, a place of pilgrimage. Today a veritable sea of crosses – hundreds of thousands of them – serves as a monument to Lithuanians’ devotion to their religion. You will learn about the cross making craft - one of the most unique Lithuanian crafts, included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List. After the visit in the Hill of Crosses, it is possible to stop for lunch in a traditional restaurant before making your way back to the capital city, Vilnius.

Really good. The hill of crosses is definitely worth a visit. We stopped also at a museum and a nice small town. I recommend it

Only ONE stop

We drove through Siauliai but didn't stop or see anything & didn't stop anywhere except the Hill of Crosses. 2+ hrs in the van up, 1 hour at the Hill, & almost 3 hours back in the van. (So only 6 hours which was shorter than the trip was advertised). We didn't get a real guide even though there were 4 people in the van. Instead we just heard information over the radio which was hard to hear in the back sometimes. The Hill of Crosses was really neat to see so that is the only reason I could give the trip 3 stars.
