Itinerary
Your tour begins in Stockholm's oldest square, Stortorget, in the heart of Gamla Stan (old town). There, at the designated time, meet your guide and group and embark upon your walking tour.

While strolling the cobblestone streets of Gamla Stan, listen as your guide tells you about such historic characters as Birger Jarl, the man who founded the city of Stockholm in 1250. Walk through atmospheric narrow passageways and along streets originally built for horse-drawn carriages as you head for the Gothic cathedral, Storkyrkan.

Head onward to the Royal Palace to admire its splendid Baroque-style architecture, as well as the palace guards who protect the Swedish royal family's residence.

Next, it's time to explore the archipelago further. Take a ferry over to Djurgården island to visit the Vasa Museum. Explore the highlights of the ship, which sunk off Stockholm in 1628 on its maiden voyage.

Your tour concludes in the museum, so feel free to continue exploring, or perhaps grabb a bite to eat (own expense), at leisure.

The wonderful Vasa

Truly inspiring. Prepare to spend several hours here as there is so much to see and discover. The cleverly constructed humans were amazing and taken from original skeletons and using forensic technology to carefully recreate their facial features. Sounds ghoulish but it was not.More
