The 52 meters high Bell Tower is one of the oldest and tallest towers in the Old Town. It offers panoramic views but the windows are covered with nets. The entrance fee is 4,50 euros.

It is a little bit of a climb, but the tower offers nice views of the city. If you want a nice arial view, I would also suggest climbing the tower at the Univeristy of Vilnius

For almost five Euros you can climb up several flights of, at best, precarious flights of stairs to see most of Vilnius. Not for people with a fear of heights or those with mobility issues. Nevertheless, a wonderful part of Vilnius history.

The kids under 6 are free but adults have to pay 4.5€. At the first floor you control a cam that is located on the tower. At second floor kids can play with some bells. At third and above IMHO the stairs was too dangerous...More
