The tour will give you the city’s exciting history where truths and legends from Visby’s 1,000-year history are mixed. We wander through centuries in the walled city and get to know the streets and squares, alleys and people.

The tour will end in a local Pub where we will toast to world heritage. After the tour and toast a one course dinner will be served at a local restaurant nearby.
