Alesund is a pretty little city that has some very interesting architecture. It is spotlessly clean, streets well-laid out, harbor area very scenic. We toured around near where the Serenade of the Seas was docked and you could see the ship pretty much wherever you went in town. The town has numerous fountains, statues, an inner-harbor, and cafés and bakeries to die for. I think the best part of Alesund was simply chatting it up with local folk. They all speak English and are very friendly and will go out of their way to assist any traveler. They are rightfully proud of their town. At the end of the walking tour the guide brought us to some city benches overlooking an little inlet and asked that we sit down. Much to our surprise the benches were heated! Wonderful! It wasn't that cold that day but we were told that it gets really cold in Alesund in fall/winter. The town has a nice feel to it, very comfortable, and homelike. Don't pass up the opportunity to stop there.
