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.
Take a break from the city and head to Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

For other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Helsinki trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
