Oil museum interesting. Britannia rather dwarfed the 'old town' of Gamle. A decent, first stop in Norway

easy to wander round, the old town is directly opposite the ship, the modern town is pleasant and has a selection of shops

The ship docks right downtown. A Sunday port call so not many place open. Weather was good and we walked throughout the city.

We docked right near the old town residential district with its white clapboard houses. The downtown has more colorful wooden buildings and is an easy walk from the ship, as is the petroleum museum, which does a good job of describing the Norwegian oil industry, what good it has brought, the social disruption it has caused and the threat of climate change. It left you with a lot of questions and some ideas of how to find answers without giving them to you. It was an excellent experience. As a bonus, if you have kids there is lots of interactive stuff geared to kids. Read Less

We have been here before. A lovely town to walk around. Very easy as you dock by the town. A good selection of shops and eateries. Urban in comparison to other Norwegian ports. Prices are high

Very cold and windy so didn’t hang around too much. Took the hop on hop off, but waste of money as you don’t see much and the pretty little town is walkable from the ship.

This is a small, delightful town. The ship docks directly facing Gamle Stavanger (the Old Town). It's a pleasant stroll around the harbor and to the interesting Petroleum Museum.
