We visited the aquarium, which is small but very interesting. A highlight was the Art Nouveau museum. Lots of souvenir shops with made in China stuff.

We were going to take the hop on hop off bus but were glad we changed our mind. We heard from others that they were stranded at distant stops because the bus was full and no one was willing to get off. One couple were stuck an hour and a half. We did see some empty seats late in the day but they obviously sold too many tickets. We spent the morning in the Art nouveau museum and adjoining art gallery. The town had burnt down in about 1910 and had been rebuilt in Art Nouveau style which is explained in the museum. We walked the streets looking at the buildings and passed the cathedral which was closed. We found a trendy coffee bar overlooking the harbour and found tea or coffee are affordable compared to alcohol!! Read Less

We climbed up 417 steps to the Fjellstua Viewpoint, it was a bit windy so it was a tricky climb , I literally was nearly blown over but amazing views at the top. We also visited the little Alesund museum which I thought was interesting.

Got on the road train from right outside the port, it was excellent. A good tour that takes you to the top of the mountain with fantastic views, costs less than £20 per person, lasting about 1 and a 1/4 hours, with a fifteen minute stop ... Read More
