Day 1
Visby | Visby

Your guide will meet you on the pier for your private tour of Visby. Today you will have the opportunity to visit the best preserved medieval city in Scandinavia. Visby, named a UNESCO world heritage site, still maintains its two mile long stone wall fortification built in the 13th century.

The stone wall features Maiden’s Tower (Your guide will tell the tragic story behind the tower) and Powder Tower, which is the oldest fortification tower in Visby. Within these walls are numerous buildings from earlier centuries including the Visby Sweden Cathedral, numerous houses from the Middle Ages and the Dominican Monastery of St. Nicholas which features a large Rose window in its gable.

Also located on the island are the Botanical Gardens which has given the city its nickname the “City of Roses”. The gardens were founded in 1855 to educate the young people of Visby about nature. Due to its location and shelter provided by the protective wall you will find a variety of plants normally found in warmer climates.

Cars are banned in the Old Town during the summer months so you can enjoy strolling the cobbled streets and view the original Hanseatic harbor. Visby is home to many highly skilled artists and you will find numerous studios featuring ceramics, textiles and metalwork.

Return to the tender pier in good time for your departure.
