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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Katajanokka and Ullanlinna. Venture out of the city with trips to Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Pack the 26th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and play a few rounds at Tapiola Golf.

To see maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki day trip website.

Milan, Italy to Helsinki is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Milan in May, with highs in Helsinki at 18°C and lows at 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
