We will be in Tallin in a couple of weeks. Our port time is very short - 7 to 1. How long would you say the walking tour should take? By the way, your web site is now in my favorites. Hopefully we will get to travel as much as you have.
Thanks in advance,
Sally, sorry for this late response.
Tallin is really fascinating and you will love the Old Town. The walk is only about two or three miles, as I recall. But it involves uphill and cobble stone streets.
If you are so limited time-wise, I would still take part of the 'walk' but skip going along the old city wall in the beginning and go straight up the main street, Pit. Then go throught the port in the grey house, up the hill and spent at least an hour there. Then go down the hill and adjust your time and likes accordingly. Skip lunch, but if you see the Olde Hansa, have a peek inside. It is worth a slight detour.
To walk from the main square back to the ship should not be more than 20 minutes unless you stop some more along the way.
