Rauma or Porvoo or Tallinn?

Jump to last reply

Thanks to your kind responses to earlier postings, I've found the information I need about taking the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn for a Saturday or Sunday day trip to see the old town. I will probably keep my hotel room in Helsinki as I am there for several days on business.

Now, if I have another free weekend day to take a day trip out of Helsinki, I was looking at Porvoo or Rauma--sound like the combination of history, architecture, and handicrafts I like. I can find a description of taking the boat or bus to Porvoo (looks like I could do that independently rather than on a guided tour).

Am I correct that Rauma would take 4 hours on 3 trains? I did not have success with the Express Bus website to determine a bus routing. Looks like it would be an overnight trip.

Has anyone been to all three cities and can give me guidance to prioritize in case I only have time for one out of town trip?
