Like most places, we go on our own, and where possible we take advantage of the hop on hop off buses, we find this is the best way to get around & see as much as possible. The 1st stop we got of was the train up the hill, we actually got got a combined ticket which saved us queuing for a while. The views from the top are spectacular! The 2nd place we went was the world heritage site, the buildings there are stunning. We almost missed the boat as the bus returning was delayed! We made it, so it was all ok!

Amazing port sun been shining all day old town has lovely quaint shops. Walk to the floibenen And take the train to the top Of the mountain. Get there early would be my tip. The lake with fountain is beautiful. Great place love it.
Walked from ship to Funicular, lovely walk through town and market as we didn’t let the rain spoil our day. Funicular is a must, fabulous views, even in the rain, from the top with nice gift shop, restaurant and other facilities. Only takes about 6 minutes to travel up and you can stay as long as you like and return back down.
We took a pretty pricey taxi to the Stave Church and were very happy to have done so. There's a nice walk to the church and while it's a reproduction it is nonetheless remarkable. We also took the tourist train here because we didn't want to wait 2 hours for the funicular, nor did we want the hop on hop off. the little train has a lookout stop and it suited us fine. We walked back to the ship along the harbour and enjoyed the old wharf. It was really fantastic.

Didn't get to see everything I wanted to as the ship seemed to dock a long way from the town.
