We were expecting more restaurants and shops. In fact, we had to search hard to find a place for lunch — a pizza place with good food but oddly we were the only ones there on a gorgeous day. Enjoyable if you have time to...More

No visit to Trondheim would be complete without a walk through Bakklandet. Although this area is not large, there's a good concentration of highly rated restaurants there, along with picturesque homes and shops. Stroll through Bakklandet, stop for a meal, then continue on the nice...More
