DescriptionDiscover Stockholm's old town and enjoy priority access to its Vasa Museum on a combined tour. In just 2.5 hours you’ll take in the city’s most popular sights. On your guided walk through the old town you’ll learn how and why the Nobel Prize came to be, and where the Royal Family actually lives. You guide will also tell you what the residents used to do with their garbage, how narrow the narrowest alley in Stockholm is, how many live in the old town, and what the cost of living is there. Next you’ll board a ferry to the island of Djurgården. Enjoy spectacular views of Stockholm from the water, and en route you'll come to understand why Stockholm is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the North. Visit the Vasa Museum and discover how a ship that spent 333 years on the bottom of the sea could be so well preserved, how many people died as the ship sank, who was punished for this failure, and how it was salvaged. Learn all this and more and have your questions answered during a tour of the Museum. Once your tour has finished, you’re welcome to stay on longer to check out the exhibitions and watch a film about the Vasa.
