Another place where you don't necessarily need to use the Shuttle Bus even. Center of town is around 20 minute walk. Plenty of stuff to look around. People are friendly and helpful.

The hop on/ off bus gave us a good introduction to Stockholm and, because of walking limitations, worked fine. It would have been nice to explore the old city but we don't walk well on cobblestones.

Stockholm was the easiest city to get around by using the hop on hop off boats which are waiting right by the ship.(Follow the red line on the pavement). Vasa museum was agreed to be a must by everyone and we were among the first people to get in on what was to be a very busy Sunday. The old town was pleasant enough but was full of tourist shops selling mostly junk. Read Less

A spectacular day from start to finish. The 3 hour transit through the archipelago was quite stunning. Then Britannia arrived in Stockholm to be greeted as the largest ever cruise ship to berth in the city berths. The city itself is best described as classy, on all levels – people and places. From the city berths, the city centre is easily reached on foot. And the day ends with another spectacular transit through the archipelago back to the Baltic Read Less

We used the hop on, hop off boats and they were extremely easy to use and right by where we docked. The Open Air Museum was very interesting.

Loved Stockholm!! Don't miss the changing of the guards at the Royal palace it was amazing. Starts at noon but get there at 11:30 for a good vatage point. The city is clean and extremely easy to get around. The hoho bus and boat are worth doing. We did an archipelago dinner cruise on a 1930 steamship. Excellent and I highly recommend it!! Also dinner at The Burger Bar, just off a cute little park with great food! Read Less

We did an extension in this beautiful city and because our hotel was close to old town, we walked through there for hours. Loved the palace and the walkways along the water. Visited the ABBA museum. Well worth the time and money.

A beautiful city, with such picturesque views on the waterfronts. The Vasa Museum was a little gem, and so easy to navigate. Again, there was much to see and do here. We plan to return!

The only place we had to wait more than 5 mins for the free shuttle bus but still not a problem. Charming city set on waterways. Ships expert had told us to catch the changing of the guard at the Palace at 12.15 which we did. Charming g winding streets of the Old Town. Waited for the Nobel Museum to open at 11am but entrance fee included a tour in English- informative and could have spent more time there but ship was leaving at 2.30pm that day. Read Less

Again we took the Hop on Hop off Bus. We had been here before and we spent the day wandering around shopping sending e-mails and just generally soaking up the different site and sound.

Incredible city! Beautiful and lots to do! Two days is not nearly enough. 1. Gamla Stan – or old town. We spent a lot of time here because its adorable and fun to walk around. We were able to walk here from the dock and I would recommend it if you can handle it. It took us about 20 minutes to walk to Gamla Stan from the boat. The reason is because you walk along the water and there is a really interesting Photography Museum which is open late (11:00 p.m. when we were there) and you have great views of the City. We also took a cab one night when we went to eat dinner with some of our older friends. Fun shopping and walking! Also a lot of nice restaurants. 2. VASA Museum – A MUST SEE! This is Stockholm’s most popular museum for locals and visitors alike. It houses the oldest intact ship found in Stockholm’s harbor. It dates back to the 1600s and 98% of the ship is original. The Swedes found it in the 60s after search forever. It took them 30 years to restore it and also preserve it. It’s a stunning ship and the history around it and what the Swedes learned about life around that time is fascinating and priceless. The ship was built to tall and narrow (by the King’s insistence over the objections of the engineers) – when it was launched it sunk within 10 minutes. No one was able to salvage or find it until sometime in the 1960s. We also ate lunch at the museum cafeteria. The food is very good there and in my opinion a good deal for Stockholm. 3. ABBA Museum – if you love ABBA or are interested in that kind of history – this is a fabulous museum and so much fun. It’s not a huge space, so it can be very crowded during high season and you could feel a little claustrophobic. But it was totally worth it to me! We loved it and it also only just recently opened. 4. Swedish Fika – This is a concept like English Tea – this is the Swedish version. The Swedes love coffee, in fact pretty much most of Scandinavia we visited are big coffee fans. So Fika is a late morning or afternoon snack of coffee (or a coffee drink) and a roll – traditionally the Swedish Cinnamon bun is eaten, and they are very delicious. More like a dense bread/bun with more of a cardamom taste than a cinnamon taste and its sprinkled with sanding sugar (the chunkier ones like pretzel salt) – its not like the American cinnamon buns, but I love it and its worth trying. 5. Royal Palace – this is a working palace, but the royal family lives elsewhere. Its very beautiful and there are guided tours offered for a fee (its really worth the fee because there are some very interesting things about the palace you can only learn from the guide. Plus you will miss most of the cool parts of the palace if you don’t do a guided tour). If you buy a ticket of the armory and the royal apartments, I think you get a discount. We did the Armory, Royal Apartments and the Treasury. The Treasury has the real crown jewels – unlike the Tower of London. 6. Changing of the Guards at the Royal Palace – they do this every day several times a day. The uniforms are modern military uniforms, but there is a marching band. Apparently, the guards often come from all over Sweden and its an honor to do this. Its worth seeing if you are around the area, but get there early so you can get a spot to actually see something. 7. Nobel Prize Museum and Grillska Huset. We did not have time to tour the Nobel Prize Museum, but we ate at the Grillska Huset located kitty corner from it. This is the most reasonable place to eat in Gamla Stan. The food was awesome and the price was very reasonable. Its like a cafeteria. 8. Boat tour – we did take one of the boat tours because it docked very close to the ship. Our ticket was good for 48 hours and it wasn’t very expensive. This is how we got to the Vasa Museum from the ship. However, the last boat back to the dock was something like 4 p.m. So if you want to stay later or go into town for dinner you can walk into town or take a cab (we did both). The 48 hours was handy because we finished the entire route in two days (its not that its so big, its that we stopped to see things). Read Less

We were supposed to dock closed to town, but ended up in the hinterland. There seemed to be much confusion in port with little information being shared. We caught a taxi for 40€ for 6 and went to the Vasa. From there we wandered, took a local ferry and finally a taxi back to ship. We spent less than we would have with transfers.
