Full description

After meeting your host at the terminal, take a bus ride to the Upper Old Town. During this 15-minute transfer with other passengers, you can admire the beautiful parks surrounding Old Town and observe the 13th-century medieval Toompea Castle standing majestically at the top of Toompea hill. Start the walking tour at the Upper Old Town. See the Estonian Parliament and visit the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. After a stroll through the narrow cobblestone lanes, you'll visit the oldest church in Tallinn - Dome Church. Experience magnificent panoramic views from the Kohtuotsa Viewing Platform. From here, you'll descend to the much livelier Lower Old Town. The main attractions here are the gothic-style merchant houses, the Town Wall with its beautiful towers, as well as the St Nickolas Church and Holy Ghost Church.

The tour continues on to the historical city center, Town Hall Square where one of the oldest pharmacies in the world can still be seen next to the 15th century Town Hall. Next, take a walk through St Catherine’s Passage and admire the private studios of the local artists. The tour ends at the Viru Gate where you'll be given 2 hours of free time to have lunch and to do some shopping.

At the scheduled time, from the city center, the bus will take you back to the port.
