Routed back to the ship along this street being distracted by the many little shops along the way. Great for wee souveniers and other items

Less touristy and somewhat nicer places to eat and shops are interesting as well. I walked this a few times and found it interesting

This street and area typifies the Old Town itself. Architecture unique, medieval and beautiful. The streets are cobblestone as much of the area was born from 12th and 13th centuries in Europe. Narrows street which branch off into other streets and alleyways. A tourist paradise...More

I just enjoyed the people-watching (seeing it fill up with tourists), window shopping & strolling along this centuries-old street.

It is one of the cobblestone streets/alleys of the old town, pleasant to walk. It is tempting to make a break and drink an Estonian beer in any of the nice bars along it.
