Straight-up decryption of Vigenére is not trivial. Polyalphabetic chiphers, even simple ones, generally means you need some sort of angle to attack them. It helps a lot if you know a part of the plaintext (you can use that to deduce the key) or the length of the key (which you can then use to split the Vigenére into several monoalphabetic Caesar chipher).
