Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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 find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Turku (Bike Rental - by Carfield, Turku Cathedral, &more) and Heureka (in Vantaa). Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), make a trip to Senate Square, and see some colorful creatures with Dive Finland Oy.

To find where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip planning tool.

Rome, Italy to Helsinki is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Rome to Helsinki. When traveling from Rome in February, plan for much colder days and little chillier nights in Helsinki: temperatures range from 0°C by day to -3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
