Drive from Vilnius to Riga with stops at the Hill of Crosses and Rundale Castle. The Hill of Crosses is interesting and inspiring. Rundale Castle is nicely restored and interesting.Unfortunately, our guide overbooked herself and sent her husband to drive us. We had paid for and expected a guided tour. What we got was a pleasant driver with some interesting information but not a guided tour.
