two days in Stockholm


I'll be in Stockholm for a day and a half in mid August. I will be boarding a Windstar Cruise there so time is limited. Here are my questions:

1. What is the best way to get from the ARN airport to Skeppesbron dock which is near Gamla Stan? Is there a train or is a taxi the best way? Also what would either of those cost per person.

2. I'd like to do a walking tour of Old Town. Can anyone recommend a good company?

3. With the limited time I have, is there something that I MUST not miss while in Stockholm?

Thanks in advance for your help!

1. Skeppsbron is IN the Old Town. You can choose between bus (ca 100 sek, 40 min), train (260 sek, 20 min, summer deal 280 sek for two persons) or taxi (470-500 sek). Only use the big firms, i.e. Taxi Stockholm, Taxi Kurir or Taxi 020, the market is unregulated. The bus and the train arrive at almost the same spot, ca 10 min walk to Skeppsbron.

2. http://www.freetourstockholm.com/ is one firm. I havent tried them since it's my home town.

3. It's great that you include Gamla Stan, that's one of the real top attractions. Apart from that you should have time for the Vasa museum (17th unique preserved warship) and a trip to the high ground on Södermalm south of the Old Town, excellent views of the inner harbour.
