What is Live Like a Local?

What is there to do in Turku and what is it that the locals really like? Live Like a Local is a guide that brings together helpful tips and suggestions for the Turku region, with both regular attractions as well as activities to help you create your unique, custom programme. For each day of the week we have collected our own suggestions that are easy to include.

The contents of Live Like a Local is seasonally based, so that most of what is scheduled for June will apply in July and August, allowing you to extend your trip that little bit longer.

Botanical Garden

Don’t forget this

Food Walk

Rising in popularity, the fantastic Food Walk provides a cross-section of Turku’s restaurant culture. The card includes a selection of nine restaurants, from which the holder can choose five in which to eat. The restaurants are located along the River Aura and in downtown Turku, and the restaurant tour can be easily combined with the Museum Walk or Culture Walk tours.

NB! We recommend booking a table if your group four people or more.
