Tallinn boasts one of the finest medieval Old Towns in all of Northern Europe. Enjoy the view from your coach as you pass the city wall with its towers dating from the 13th to 15th centuries. Keep an eye out also for the National Opera House and Freedom Square.
Travel to the Upper Town's Dome Hill (Toompea) -- site of the Parliament of Estonia, the Tall Hermann Tower, the Russian Orthodox Church of St Alexander Nevski, St Mary's Cathedral and the House of the Estonian Knighthood. From here, set out on a walk that will take you through the Long Leg to the Lower Town.
Along the way, admire Kiek in de Kök Tower, originally built in the 1470s. You'll also see the Maiden's Tower. When it was built in 1373, it was located in the Danish King's Garden but was soon engulfed by medieval urban sprawl.
Continue your walk to the Lower Town -- a labyrinth of narrow, 13th-century streets. A short concert of medieval music accompanies a coffee break at a medieval house-restaurant. After the concert you will see the Church of the Holy Spirit, the Town Hall Apothecary (1422) and the Town Hall (1404).
Walk through Pharmacy Lane and Catherine's Passage, lined with handicraft workshops. Make the most of some time for shopping at the Müürivahe Street market, where wool and linen products are sold.
Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore on their own are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.
Please note: Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations.
