WHY VISIT TALLINN

Imagine a city with a virtually intact medieval village, red roofs and old fortified walls, noble palaces, narrow streets with craft shops, some impressive basilicas, a castle. This is Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, a trendy destination but never excessive, open, and relaxed. Small (it takes a few hours to visit it) but with so many things to see is the ideal destination for a weekend far from the classic European cities.

Enjoy the Old Town which winds around the Town Hall Square, a must-see point for any visit to Tallinn. Discover the history of the city through the Vene and Pikk Tanav streets, with the buildings of the ancient guilds and the Passage of Santa Caterina, an extraordinary architectural glance. Stop and meditate for a few minutes in the three churches of the city: Holy Spirit, St. Olav, and the Orthodox Cathedral. If you are hungry, challenge your stomach with the Estonian cuisine with its stewed meat, sauerkraut, and potato dishes.

And if you have seen everything in a few hours, start the tour again or take a walk in front of the clear and frozen waters of the Baltic Sea. More than the things built by men, this is the landscape that never tires and reconciles with oneself and nature.
