All reviews cobbled streets chocolate shop antique shops walk along the river day trip oldest city bus station tourist shops couple of hours walking shoes small market old church lovely town worth the trip pretty town walk around few hours
This is Finland's second oldest city founded in 1346. It is a pretty place but not a lot to do except shop or eat. The cathedral was interesting but that was about it. There is a public restroom which says it requires coins but did...More
After spending 3 hectic days in St Petersburg it was a welcome change to drive into the Finnish countryside to the town of Porvoo.
Many of the buildings in the old town are constructed of wood including some storage buildings that are UNESCO sites. The...More
To be honest I am not sure that it was worth the time and effort to get here. The old part of town is really very small, highly tourist orientated and really nothing special. A lot had been made of this town, but I left...More
Nice pretty Old town. Area of Old town is small but pretty. Have some gift shops and restaurants in area and near by. If you are near Porvoo I would recomend to go there. Best time would be while sun in shining.

We visited Porvoo as an excursion from our cruise ship in Helsinki, and while some of the buildings are very old and the old town can be quaint - it is mostly just a bunch of tourist shops and cafes. While somewhat interesting it is...More

The cheapest way is to take Onnibussi from Kamppi bus terminal in the central of Helsinki. Onnibus' journey time is 45 min and the price can be cheap as 3 € one way if you book early. Which is cheaper than travel from the airport to the Helsinki city centre. Check the prices at Onnibus website, you can also buy tickets online.
