Old Town Porvoo is such a cute place to explore. The cobblestone streets wind between colorful clapboard houses making for perfect picture opportunities. Be sure to wear good walking shoes though. The streets are hilly and uneven.
Picturesque town by the river, romantic, cute little shops and kids selling licorice (delicious).
Chocolate store a must with free samples.
Friendly vendors is a plus. Spend the whole morning and have lunch or afternoon and have dinner.
