Porvoo is a great destination for a day trip or staycation, and I try to visit it atleast once a year. The restaurant scene there is truly good, and I also enjoy stopping into the small shops in the picturesque old town. - - - - - - - 🇫🇮 - - - - - - - Porvoo on upea kohde lyhyelle viikoloppulomalle tai päiväretkelle. Ravintola- ja kahvilatarjonta on erinomainen, ja vanhan kaupungin liikkeeissä on ihana vierailla. Myös jokiranta on kaunis, ja yöpyjälle on tarjolla erilaisia vaihtoehtoja. Luxuksen ystävälle Pariisin Ville on erinomainen vaihtoehto.
