Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Market Square Kauppatori. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Lehman). Spend the 15th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 17th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo.

To see other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
