Our hotel was nearby so we didn’t have too far to walk, but the upper part of town (Toompea) is definitely worth exploring. Some of the best (if not the best) views of Tallinn’s old town can be enjoyed from here.

Definitely head up here for the view and the interesting small streets and different feel from other parts of Old Town.
You must find time to go for a walk at this place. It is located about 15 minutes walking from the main square of Tallinn old town. From there you have the oportunity to admire the view of all town.
Do not miss this area of Tallinn. There are lots of buildings of architectural and national interest, and it is a lovely place to wander around. Very pretty and offers great views over Old Town.
Bit of a walk up the hill but definitely worth it. Great view over Tallinn and several nice shops and places to relax and have a quick drink or a bit to eat.
