The city is lovely, with it’s traditional wooden houses, it’s big harbor full of beautiful yachts (the Turku’s archipelago is very close), it’s old church, and there’s even the official summer residence of the President of Finland. You can do shopping in the handicraft shops, or rest at a restaurant with a view on the harbor.

One says in Finland : to shine like Naantali’s sun ! That’s true ! When it’s raining in the center of the country, sun shines on the coast of Naantali. To make a comparison with France, one can say that Naantali is a kind of Finnish Saint-Tropez !
