Oh, the magic of this historic and darling island! We hopped a boat to swing over here from Stockholm and goodness me, am I glad we made the time. Visby is the main town on the island of Gotland off the coast of Stockholm by about three hours. It’s known for its well-preserved town wall, a medieval fortification incorporating defensive towers. If you’re a gamer, it will remind you so much of Carcassonne. The town’s many churches include the grand, centuries-old St. Mary’s Cathedral and the medieval ruins of St. Nicolai and St. Karin. The main square, Stora Torget, has cobblestone streets lined with cafes and restaurants.
