If you have enough time in Vilnius and don't know what to do: yes, go up the bell tower. However, the view is not outstanding and nets ruin the view a bit. We had a much better view over Vilnius from the hill of Gediminas...More

We visited the Cathedral bell tower and it is a great fun place to go. To be fair it is slightly challenging to those who might not like heights too much. But there are various levels on the way up and you can go as...More
