Widely available from tourist offices in Tartu and the region in a number of languages including English, the 2.5 hour self-guided walking tour takes in all the main sites with just the right amount of information about each stop.

Away from the more obviously tourist restaurants in and around the main square, Eduard Vilde is named after the famous Estonian writer and serves a varied menu throughout the day, with a large terrace at the rear if the weather is warm.
The food is imaginative and mainly local, with attentive service. Prices are good for the quality and it seems to be popular with Tartu's large academic population.
The building is situated between the town hall square and Vanemuisa Theatre and has a sculpture of a (fictitious) meeting between Vilde and Oscar Wilde outside.
Tartu is an idyllic university town 185 kilometres south of Tallinn. Mass tourism hasn't really taken off there yet, so you can enjoy the best of Estonia without the drunken stag dos.
It's only a few hours by train from Tallinn.
