“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Everything you would expect of a delightful Norwegian town, steep roads, but worth the climb. Charming buildings full of character very worth while visiting

“Beautiful old town maintained with pride by the residents”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

A great escape from the hassle and bustle of the waterfront. Not spoiled by tourist shops, bars or restaurants. A great location to stroll off lunch or dinner.

“Nice white houses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

...and narrow streets. There are flowers near each house. You've got to walk up to reach the Old Stavanger, but after that's done you'll have a view of the harbour from there. The Canning museum is in the Old Stavanger (see my review of it later).

“WELL PRESERVED OLD CITY CENTER”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

The white houses and the calm. I enjoy even more the colouful houses at the other side of the port where you can find a lively place with cafés and shops.
