Stockholm is a really cool, sophisticated city. The architecture is such a wonderful mix of modern and art nouveau very reminiscent of boulevards in Paris.
As we only had a day to explore we opted for the “Hop on hop off “ bus and boat tours. Both were an excellent choice and value for getting a great overview of the city. We were able to hop off at many interesting sites, then rest weary feet to see more of the city and sites with headphones on both bus and boat for a great narration and overview of what we were seeing and the next stop!
We visited the Vasa museum. Fabulous exhibit of an ancient Viking ship that has been restored.
We also visited the Old City as well as the longest pedestrian steel with fabulous shops, cafés, and restaurants. We actually stopped in a lovely café and had a most delicious café mocha, a cappuccino, and two delicious desserts, a cannoli and key lime pie (ha!, in Stockholm!
All in all, a fabulous stay!
