First you will circle around the Old Town so you can see the magnificent views of the medieval city walls. The best perspective will be found in Upper Town at the top of Toompea Hill, where you are afforded a panoramic view of the city. Your walking will begin here as you see the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, and you will visit the Dome Church and the Russian Orthodox Church. You will find yourself in the heart of Town Hall Square.
As you move into Lower Town, you'll recall the maze of streets you saw from above. Your guide has volumes of stories and history that turn each corner as you do. It is difficult to discern between buildings in the Lower Town. You could never imagine the part each might have played in the past. The Pharmacy, a highlight, opened 70 years before Columbus discovered America. You'll also see the Gothic Town Hall and the Great Guild House from the exterior.
The colorful market will be a perfect place to purchase some handmade souvenirs before you return to the ship. If you prefer to stay in Old Town, your guide will tell you how you can either walk or take a taxi back to your ship.
