Tallinn in a day, suggestions on what see and do.


Recommended Posts

Not too many replies so I will add my 2 cents. As you can see from the previous post most of the attractions are in the old town, it is any easy 10 min or so walk from the ship. With a little research Talin is an easy port to do on your own, as we did a couple of years ago.

We did the Old Town. We followed a walking tour in a Rick Steves book. IIRC, the title was Scandanvia.

It is a easy city to walk around

Yes, it is a very easy city to walk around. The Rick Steves walking tour we did was very precise. It said things like turn left and then take 3 steps.

Tallinn is very hilly.  I enjoyed walking it 20 years ago, but this time I need a ride to the top of the city.

Then walking down would be easy.  Does anyone know of a good guide with a car?

Apart from walking the streets of the Old Town we caught a taxi to and found the Tallinn Prison a fascinating place to visit also!

How far away was the Tallinn Prison and what made it fascinating?

Did you see anything else of interest outside the city?

The age of the prison,  a glimpse into a long (and sad) history -  the fact that it was only closed relatively recently and something different to end the day.  It was only a short taxi ride to the terminal -  on a side note it was one of the most memorable because of the taxi driver - we laughed all the way and still think very fondly of him!

Thanks CassCruise and mskaufman.  City of Tallin is lovely and prison is interesting.

I know the city is too hill for me to walk.  But I'm considering a taxi for an hour or two that will drop us off at the top of the town.  I could then take my time and walk back down to the cruise port.
