Interesting landmark but not surely worth a whole day trip for this
This trip takes almost all day and the landmark is interesting but small and quite far from Vilnius. Our guide was not very interesting and we took more time on the way than in the actual landmark. Unless you have a religious interest for the place, there should be more interesting things to do than spend so many hours in the van.

Passionate Tour Guide
Tour led by a friendly, passionate guy. This is someone who cares about his subject and wants you to
understand it. The Hill of Crosses is a place like no other; it meant a lot to me, but it may not be of
interest to everyone. Stopped for lunch on the way back; nice restaurant.

Inspiring day
Andrea is a very enthusiastic guide. He shared lots of information and it is clear he loves his country. The stop at the memorial park to Lithuanian partisans who continued to fight against the soviets until 1956 was very interesting. The Hill Of Crosses demonstrated to me the spirit of Lithuanians to continue and rise above oppression.
