Save Place
Katariina Quai is something totally different to the bustling theme-park that is the old town and you deserve a medal if you've manage to get here on your own, cause it's a lot of zig-zagging through a Soviet-looking industrial area. Biking or...

Töölö, Helsinki, Finland
Rent a bike and grab Helsinki's bike pathways map to create a custom tour. There are a few major loops and many junctures to jump from one loop to the other (i.e.,'green loop', 'town loop', etc..) Plan to be out for a couple of hours. The ride is...

South Harbour, 00130 Helsinki, Finland
Cruising the Baltic in the middle of summer is an experience not to be forgotten. We had the opportunity to dock in the South Harbor, which is conveniently located within walking distance of the city's center. This is a view looking north toward...

Lutherinkatu 3, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
One of the most famous landmarks in Helsinki is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Walking around, you would never spot the church as there are none of the typical signs, like a spire or a cross, marking it. All you see is a large green...

Unioninkatu 29, 00170 Helsinki, Finland

Mannerheiminaukio 2, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
Finland is home to some of the world’s best health care, literacy rates and education services. Finnish women were the first in the world to have full voting rights. And the capital Helsinki repeatedly receives honors as one of the most livable...

Porvoo, Finland
When we were in Finland, we took an hour long drive out of Helsinki to the town of Porvoo, which is a small historical town. There was a little outdoor market and the very old Porvoo Cathedral. The streets were all made of cobblestone and it was a...

Seurasaari, 00250 Helsinki, Finland
A 20-minute or so bus ride from Helsinki center is the little island Seurasaari. Nice for a walk any time of year, and even the cafe and restaurant are open year round (but check for holiday openings). The island is accessed through a picturesque...

Hälleforsintie 1, 10470 Fiskari, Finland
I guess after three years in Finland I can call myself an insider. Here's my tip for those looking for a day trip or weekend outside Helsinki, and it's not the usual Porvoo, Turku, Tampere or Hanko (in summer). Fiskars is lovely all year round. A...

A beloved institution of the Testaccio neighborhood, La Torricella serves Roman classics, including carciofi alla Giudia, carciofi alla Romana, and pasta cacio e pepe, at moderate prices in a simple dining room. Via Evangelista Torricelli 2/12,...
