We have 9-10 hours in the port of Helsinki next July. We tend to get bored easily so we need to keep very busy and we are into quaint areas, but not museums & not city buildings. We thought of doing this for our shore excursion:
We get off the boat around 7am and we thought of taking the bus to Porvoo where we could walk around and explore for about 2 hours. We like to see the countryside. We are not sure how to get to the train station from the cruise ship berth and then to Market Square or Church on the Rock from the train station when we return. I am aware that it is about a 5 minute walk from the train station to the middle of town.
From there we would get back to Helsinki and try to see the church on the Rock. We are not sure how to get here and how to get to Market Square from there.
In the time we have left, we thought that we would get a bite to eat and shop a bit at the Market Square. If we have any time left, then we would take the ferry to the Suommenlina Fortress and walk around until it was time to get back on the boat. We would have to estimate how long it would take to get back to the boat and allow a little leeway.
Does this sound doable and could you please advise how we could use public transportation? I greatly appreciate your help.
