1 day from a cruise ship

We are stopping one day in Stockholm in June on a cruise on the Queen Elizabeth. We dont like being organised. Can we get from the port into the city and what should we see in a day that will give us a flavour of Stockholm?

We did this a few years ago and it is very easy. Lots to see in the old town "Gamlastan". No need for an escorted tour if this is not your thing.

Thank you. Is it in walking distance from the port?

If I remember correctly, the cruise ship had a shuttle we could take that dropped us off by the opera house.

There are several cruise ship ports for Stockholm; some very close to the sights you would wish to visit on a one-day stop and some very far away from town. If you tell us which port you are using, we can provide accurate advice.

The must-sees for a one-day stop IMO are the absolutely unique in the entire world Vasa Museet plus a wander through Gamla Stan (the old town).

They haven't said which cruise port we are stopping at. I am hoping it will be nearest to the town itself! several people have mentioned Gamla Stan

Nannyracer, I have checked the link provided in the VisitStockholm website for cruise ship port calls and the (only) June arrival date listed for the Queen Elilzabeth was June 13, arriving at 8 AM and departing at 6 PM. The port listed is Stadsgarden, which is on Sodermalm right by Gamla Stan, and absolutely is the closest port to the sights you will wish to visit. Easy, peasy!
