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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Get some cultural insight at Temppeliaukion Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, head outdoors with Uutelan luontopolku, take a stroll through Linden Esplanade, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. August in Helsinki sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
