  • Guided walk through the historical city center of Stockholm, Old Town or Gamla Stan: one of the best-preserved medieval quarters in the world, the very cradle of the city and-in many respects-of Sweden as a whole. Here we will walk through the picturesque cobblestone alleys, pass by the main buildings and monuments, and get a glimpse of a few curiosities and hidden corners.
  • Guided tour of Stockholm Cathedral, Storkyrkan. One of the oldest churches in the capital, seat of the bishop and official church of the Swedish Royal Family. Always in symbiosis with the city, it holds some of the most valuable works of art in the city and Swedish landscape: the original wooden statue of St. George and the Dragon, for example. Or the earliest graphic representation of the city of Stockholm that has come down to us.
  • Lunch: at a trusted restaurant or bar will be recommended according to preferences.
  • Guided walk through the city’s most bohemian and scenic neighborhood, Södermalm: An area that has undergone countless transformations and developments, but has managed to retain several traces of authenticity not found in other city neighborhoods. What’s more, located on a ridge, it offers mustsee panoramic views of the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren.
  • Short scenic boat ride.
  • Guided walk to the open-air museum Skansen. At the end of the day, we will visit a unique park: a kind of Sweden in miniature, but with absolutely authentic buildings from all parts of the country. Farms, craft workshops (still in operation!), churches, manor houses…and a zoo of Nordic animals, including reindeer, moose and bears. A relaxing and fun way to discover another piece of Swedish history.
