Street Art in Stavanger, it’s a very nice place but expensive. Would like to visit again. I loved the street art.

We visited the old city of Stavanger. The roads are narrow and cobblestoned streets. The wooden houses look great with lots of flowers. In that part you can also visit a canning factory. It was lovely to walk there on this beautiful sunny day

Old Stavanger is only a few streets but it is very nice to walk there and you do get a feeling of how Stavanger used to be.

Located just across from the port at Stavanger, this historic district is home to many beautiful Norwegian homes that were almost lost in the 50s and 60s urban renewal programs that also struck the United States. Luckily, a local architect petitioned to save the buildings...More

Nice place with feeling. Recommend to visit Norwegian Canning Museum and Maritim Museum - if you visit museums in the same day, you pay for all museums one ticket -95 NOK.

Cute, quaint and a bit boring. But unless you go out to hike in this area, the city isn't exactly an attraction.

Not a full day program. You can walk around and see the whole old town in 2 hours but it worth it. Nice restaurants, small harbor etc

Hi our ship docked alongside the old stavanger area so not very far. The paths are hilly with steps at the end so you will need to turn back & retrace your path I think. Not a problem because there is plenty to see. The... More

Hallo Matt. Stavanger Old Town is in the middle of Stavanger itself. It is easily visible because it is perched on a hilltop looking over the harbour. If you get lost, ask anyone. It will not be more than a 7 minute walk or... More
