If you want to get to the vanes and Toompea, you should use this route. Old walls and houses visible.

A long street on the edge of the old city, just inside the wall. There are some pictures and handcrafts stalls, but we expected to see more. Perhaps it was the wrong day. In any case, a pleasant and historical walk, and in the shade.

Part of the city wall defences the walls are used by local artists to display their work. A wide variety of styles so something for everyone. You can pick up some good work at reasonable prices.

Nice street to walk through and enjoy the old buildings and the wall. Street is very narrow and you need very good shoes.

Quite pricey in terms of cost, but the atmosphere is worth a visit. We stumbled upon it (harbor side Old Town inside the wall).... worth a visit if you are nearby.

pleasant street to walk that gives one access to different parts of Old Town-- more than likely a visitor will walk this route and observe the going ons.

Easiest way to get up to old Town. Not really suited to those who dislike walking. Local painters display their wares on the walls. Worth the walk.
