    A lesson in courage and perseverance awaits this morning as you meet your Local Specialist for a guided sightseeing tour of Warsaw's Old Town.

An Optional Experience could see you explore Wilanów Palace with its collection of royal furniture.

    Your journey north through the highlights of the Baltics begins today, through pastoral landscapes and rural villages to Vilnius, Lithuania's elegant capital. There isn't a city in Northern Europe with a medieval Old Town that can match its size and you'll have an opportunity to explore every inch of its Baroque, Gothic and Renaissance splendour on your own. Signs of the city's 50-years of Soviet occupation can still be seen, but it is the city's beautiful architectural heritage, gritty street art and youthful spirit which take centre stage on your visit. Launch into a love affair with Lithuanian food this evening, joining an optional dinner and folklore show. Skanaus!

    This morning, switch the new capital for the old on an Optional Experience to Trakai, for a guided sightseeing tour around its enchanting lakeside castle. Later, we'll say goodbye to Vilnius, but don't leave without fuelling up on some of the city's famous kibinai pasties. Savoury or sweet, take your pick, before heading for the Hill of Crosses at Šiauliai, where millions of crosses jostle for their spot in a non-violent protest against decades of Russian and Soviet rule. Arrive in the ancient city of Riga later - its Gothic skyline has witnessed German, Scandinavian and Russian rule across eight centuries. You'll get to hear all their tales of triumph and tragedy over the next day.
