Things to See in Oslo in 2 Days (Viking Approved)

Things to See in Oslo in 2 Days (Viking Approved), Oslo, Norway (B)

I kid, I kid, but seriously Oslo is expensive. On the night we arrived, we wanted a place to sit and review our big “Things To See In Oslo, Norway” list. We stumbled across this cute little pizzeria beside Oslo Cathedral called Cafe Cathedral. 

One pizza, one beer and a shot of the local drink called Aquavit (more on that later) ran us about 420 Norway Crowns which in Canadian dollars is approximately $70.00. Let’s get this straight. There is absolutely no way I would spend 70 bucks on pizza and beer back home in Toronto. But with Oslo’s beer tax and seating charges, my advice is to keep an eye on your money cause things get real pricey, real quick.

That said, I had a lot of trouble getting past the whole 70.00 for a pizza thing. So through a new friend, I met in Stockholm named Rachel and a friend from back home, in Toronto named Shawn, I was told to get the Oslo Pass.

The 24 pass is perfect for one day in Oslo; the 48 pass is ideal for 2 days in Oslo while the 72-hour pass is excellent for 3 days in Oslo. Each version gives you access to all the museums, all transportation and 10 to 20 percent off selected stores and restaurants.  ......
