Alesund, Norway and Giske Island 2019

Alesund is one of Norway's most beautiful cities due to its Art Nouveau architecture. Like the rest of the country the panoramas are exquisite also.
Driving to Giske Island had a unique tunnel in that there was only one lane. There were several places along the way to pullover so that traffic in both directions can use the road. One direction always has the right of way.
There is a particularly interesting 12th century white marble church in Giske. Nobody knows where the marble came from (other than by boat). These days the marble is only visible in a few places - all on the outside.
Even the view from the church is pretty.
The Alnes Lighthouse was pretty. The viewpoint from the lighthouse was prettier.
Mt Aksia had yet another gorgeous view.
