Full description
Discover the best of Tallinn by visiting important sites from different periods of the city's history. Start with the jewel of Tallinn – the medieval Old Town. Check out gabled houses, churches, and squares built between the 13th and 15th centuries while your guide combines informative commentary with colorful legends that helped to define the character of the city. Learn how Tallinn boomed as a key Hanseatic commercial hub in medieval times and visit both the upper and lower Old Town. 

Continue by bus or car to the leafy Kadriorg district. Explore a peaceful, green area of the city that is home to beautifully-crafted wooden villas, art museums, and a baroque palace built for Russian Tsar Peter the Great. Then head to the Pirita beach area, where you will get a glimpse of the mysterious ruins of a 15th-century convent and the city’s soviet-era TV tower. Enjoy views of the Baltic Sea and, if it's warm, plenty of sunbathers on the beach.

After a lunch break, visit the Open Air Museum in Viimsi, a complex of seaside-farmhouses over 150 years old. Relax and enjoy some of the best views of the famous skyline of Tallinn from this picturesque coastal village turned museum.
