We went there after Aug 15, just before school opening in Sweden so a lot of tourist have already gone home.
I suggest no less than 3 nights (the transportation by ferry last at least 3-4 hours) but not more than 5 nights, unless you want to take some sunbathing or do some beach activities (unthinkable there for Italians).
I also suggest to overnight in the capital Visby, former hanseatic city, where there is the highest concentration of churches of all Scandinavia.
