When in Tallinn visit the old town where you can see the Town Wall, you can walk up the towers to get a good view of the old town, a small cost.

On our way down the cobblestone road to Old Town, we were surprised to see lots of local art attached to the walls along the road----with the artists there, of course (hoping for a sale). It blended in well with the Old Town atmosphere.

There are some really impressive walks along the wall and several towers that you can climb. these not only give you a a good veiw over the old town, but also a real appreciation of a medieval walled city.

There are free bits and bits that have a small charge. We paid for a small section because there were other things to see there,. You just need to wander around the town and everthing is clearly signed and you just stumble... More
