Itinerary:

Costa Magica is a captivating ship, inspiring us to explore and appreciate its nuances Designed by the American architect Farcus, it expresses his vision and seems literally suspended between the sky and sea.

Day 1  : BOARD IN STOCKHOLM

Arrival in Stockholm and transfer to the cruise-ship terminal on your own

Stockholm is generally referred to as Beauty on Water, or Venice of the North, which is understandable as the city is built upon 14 islands. It is surrounded by Lake Mälaren and by the Baltic Sea. City's grand public buildings, palaces, rich cultural history and museums tell her 700 year-old history beautifully.

Day 3  : HELSINKI

Arrival 08:00 AM / Departure 06:00 PM

Guided tour of the city including: the Tuomiokirkko Cathedral and the colourful market, the amazing rock church (entrance included) and the Sibelius Monument, which recalls a giant organ.

You can decide to terminate the city tour back on the boat for lunch (transfer is included) or to stay a little longer in the city center and then come back to the boat on your own, but remember to be back to the ship on time for the departure.

Day 4  : ST. PETERSBURG

Arrival 07:00 AM

Arrival in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is Russia's second-largest city after Moscow, and throughout history, it has been known by a few different names. In the more than 300 years since it was established, St. Petersburg has also been known as Petrograd and Leningrad, though it's also known as Sankt-Peterburg (in Russian), Petersburg, and just plain Peter.
Today we will enjoy a full day city tour with a local guide, including visits of the Hermitage, St. Isaak Cathedral, the Church of the Savior on Blood, a lunch in a local restaurant and a canal boat tour.

Tonight our ship will stay docked in St. Petersburg.

Day 5  : ST. PETERSBURG

Departure 06:00 PM

Second day of visits in St. Petersburg.
During the tour we will admire the Peter and Paul Fortress & Cathedral that is the first construction of St. Petersburg put up by Peter the Great in 1703 to provide protection from the Swedes. It lost its military significance before it was completed. Its guns never saw any action and were put to use as a flood -warning signal, and the fortress housed a political prison for two hundred years. After a lunch in a local restaurant, we will visit also the spectacular Peterhof. Set in magnificent gardens, Peterhof is reminiscent of Versailles and was only used by royalty for State occasions. The pendulous chandeliers, paintings are originals; as they were fortunately removed before the German occupation. The gardens are dotted with the fountains, charming pavilions and summer houses, including the Monplaisir, Peter's original villa with bright and airy galleries facing the sea.

Arrival in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia. Tallinn represents a medieval enclave perched on top of a hill looking overlooking the Baltics. Among the remains of the medieval battlements and towers, dominated by the simple arrows of Protestant churches, the cobbled and narrow streets lead through the city until the old square animated by its restaurants, shops, the passing of the little blue train and horse-drawn carriages.
4 hours guided tour: The old town is located in the heart of Tallinn. Divided in two very distinctive parts: Toompea hill and The lower town, centered on Raekoja plats (the Town Hall Square) is still surrounded by a 2,5 km-fortified wall.
