Helsinki ©
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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Katajanokka and Nuuksio National Park. Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

For other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Helsinki trip itinerary planning site.

Rome, Italy to Helsinki is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Rome to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Expect much colder weather when traveling from Rome in December: highs in Helsinki hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
