through the old town
Walk around the city wall20
Why locals love it
We love the Tallinn Old Town. It's a marvel of medieval architecture and we love its snaking streets and are proud to call it home. As for being "touristy" - it doesn't have to be.
Why you should visit it
Without wanting to make this sound like a video game cheat code, here's how you get there - standing below the PM's house on Toompea, head up the stairs, but instead of climbing all the way, take the pathway leading off from the steps. You'll wind up on a peaceful walk with plenty of romantic lookouts carved right into the massive city wall.
The tower on Nunne street also has access inside - at a small fee - and will give you access to the top of the city wall.
