Rises gracefully from water so clean that you can go swimming in the very heart of the city
Sweden’s capital, Stockholm, is like no other of the world’s major cities.
Stockholm rises gracefully from water so clean that you can go swimming in the very heart of the city and fishermen haul in their catch just off Drottninggatan, the equivalent of London’s Oxford Street.
Perched on 14 islands at the point where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, Stockholm is a breathtaking beauty. With twinkling, panoramic vistas greeting you around every corner this truly is one destination that really is worth leaving your luxury MSC Cruise ship!
With a fun and action-packed selection of excursion packages, you can choose from different itineraries that provide you great deals on all the local sights and which will help you quickly get a feel for this magical city.
Stockholm merits a whole holiday in itself but you can make the most of your vacation here by joining our city tour – you’ll be guided round the key attractions including the historic centre, the Baroque-style Royal Palace and a chance to take some snaps from a panoramic view point.
Stockholm, the ‘Venice of the North’ is also conducive to tours along its picturesque canals – a relaxed way to view the city from a unique vantage point. Alternatively, why not leave the ship for a day that combines a guided tour with time on your own to lunch and soak up the atmosphere of this Swedish gem.
