As you set off, you’ll pass by the old Hanseatic harbour at Almedalen, where the Powder Tower can be seen.
Enjoy a guided walk through the narrow streets of Visby. Visit St Mary’s Cathedral and continue past old medieval church ruins. All the while charming medieval alleyways surround you with houses covered in roses.
Rejoin your coach at Almedalen for a drive through the countryside. Visit one of the many fine examples of a medieval countryside church that can be found on Gotland. Continue to Gnisvärd, a picturesque old fishing village from the 1700’s. Nearby you’ll see the Ship Grave - consisting of stones standing on their edge in the shape of a ship. It was believed that the ship would carry the departed Chieftains on their voyage to eternity.
On the return to Visby, make a stop at Gallows Hill for a panoramic view of Visby and the coast.
