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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Lehman) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 7th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

To find more things to do, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki itinerary website.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daytime highs in Helsinki are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
