According to the Riviera itinerary:
- DAY 3
Today, prepare to be transported back in time as we take a short ferry ride from the mainland to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Suomenlinna Fortress. Our expert guide will bring the fort's history back to life as we explore Suomenlinna's four bastions, as well as a wealth of other attractions within the fortress walls, including deep and eerie connecting tunnels, a turquoise-topped dual use church/lighthouse, the ominous canons, lakes, gardens and even a beach. Outside of the crumbling fortress walls, we meander through the cobbled streets, across connecting bridges and in between old wooden buildings now home to quaint restaurants and artists' workshops.
In the afternoon you'll have some free time where you may choose to head back to Helsinki or stay on Suomenlinna.
