Cruises from Visby
Visby, on the island of Gotland that lies 90km off the SE coast of Sweden, is a medieval town of roses, ruins, narrow winding lanes, and an amazingly well preserved town wall with 27 of the towers still intact. There are also 200 medieval houses as well as several ancient churches, many of which were built in the 12th century. Another attraction is the beautifully restored Cathedral of St Mary’s. This delightful town certainly gives one the feeling of stepping back in time.
It is not surprising that Visby has been chosen by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
