Get to know this exciting city on a narrated tour that brings you to many of Helsinki's highlights. Departing your ship, you'll board your coach and begin your narrated tour. First, you'll amble along the shoreline for views of Suomenlinna Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and past the Esplanadi, Helsinki's famous design street. You'll stop for photos at Senate Square, home of the Lutheran Cathedral, also known as Helsinki Cathedral. Then, it's approximately 1 hour free time at bustling Market Square and surroundings followed by a tour of Temppeliaukio Church, also known as the Church in the Rock. Outside, a large copper dome peeks out of the ground. Inside, you'll find a church built inside of a massive block of granite with natural light pouring in from 180 slabs of glass. Photos taken, you'll rejoin your coach and return to your ship. Or if you choose, you can return to the ship at your leisure.
