Starting from Helsinki, we will drive an hour to the medieval town of Porvoo, one of Finland’s most idyllic districts. We will leave our car beside the river of Porvoo because the town officers have restricted the driving inside the old town. Our first place to visit will be the magnificent medieval cathedral. The cathedral was the site of opening of the first Diet of Finland in 1809 where Finland was declared an autonomous Grand Duchy of Russia. Next, we will stroll along the narrow cobblestone streets and visit a local café or shops. After visiting Porvoo, we will return back to our car and drive to Helsinki. The drive takes approximately 50 minutes to the Sibelius monument and the center of Helsinki.
Beside the Sibelius park, we will have a short break in one of the loveliest small cafés in Helsinki. You will just fall in love with the fresh coffee and cinnamon buns!
From there we will drive to see the Rock Church, the architectural pearl of the city. We will continue to the Senate and Market Squares and the Esplanade Park.
The day tour ends by driving back to your hotel or cruise ship.
