WHEN TO GO


The best time to visit Tallinn is between May and September, when there's up to 19 hours of sunlight. Visit at the time of the summer equinox to experience the city's "White Nights." Be warned, though—warm weather also brings crowds of drunken revelers. November to March is quieter but dark, wet, and cold.

HOW TO GET THERE


Tallinn's Ülemiste airport is located 2.5 miles southeast of the city center (www.tallinn-airport.ee). The ten-minute taxi ride will cost about $13. In September 2008, the airport completed a two-year renovation and expansion program that added a new runway and improved the facilities. After 2009, it will be known as Lennart Meri airport, in honor of the former president of Estonia.

GETTING AROUND


If you want to explore outside Old Town, there are buses, trolleys, and trams that operate regularly from 6 am to 11 pm. To save money (and avoid aggravating the drivers), purchase your ticket ahead of time at a newsstand for about $1, instead of for about $1.60 from the driver. Better yet, purchase a Tallinn Card at the Tallinn City Tourist Office (at 2 Niguliste/4 Kullassepa) for unlimited transportation, as well as free admission to museums and sightseeing tours. The card is available in six-hour ($11), one-day ($30), two-day ($35), and three-day ($40) increments; not all services are available with the six-hour card. If you want a cab, ask your hotel to recommend a reputable company.
