Visiting: Visby, Gotland

The penultimate stop on our Scandinavian tour is Visby, Gotland. We flew in from Göteborg and were instantly immersed in this amazing World Heritage Site! As you can see it has wonderfully preserved buildings inside an intact medieval town wall - a real draw for my vacationing partner. I squeezed in lots of window shopping and we crashed a lovely choir rehearsal at the Cathedral.
Being on an island - the weather swung from windy and overcast to beach weather overnight - we really needed more time here as we did not get to explore outside of Visby. All too soon we were on the ferry back to Sweden and on to Stockholm!
