Getting Around Vilnius
The central old quarter of Vilnius is compact and most of the
sights can be visited on foot. Those who prefer to save their shoe
leather can make use of the city''s efficient network of buses and
trolleybuses; fares can be paid on boarding or tickets bought at a
discount from newspaper kiosks. Most visitors prefer to make use of
taxis, which are relatively cheap, although it is wise to ensure
the driver has switched on the meter before leaving on the journey.
Taxis can be hailed on the street, or found at ranks at strategic
spots in the old town. They can also be ordered by telephone.
Self-driving is not recommended in the city, which has heavy,
undisciplined traffic, but all the large international car hire
companies have offices in the city and at the airport.
