In the centre of Bilbao there are snake-like creatures from another world rising up out of the ground. It is a sign of the affection in which they are held by local people that they are called 'Fosteritos' after Norman Foster, the British architect who...More

This is a very modern system which is easy to use and very clean. It covers most of the city and unlike Madrid's metro, there are lifts and escalator's to get in and out. Trains are clean but you do have to wait as the...More

Very efficient. Very inexpensive. Very clean. Safest city I've have ever been to. Trains run every 5-10 minutes. Very easy to figure out, buy tickets and navigate.

Found the metro system excellent in Bilbao. Not expensive (1.50 Euros) and you can go through Bilbao top to bottom. Trains are clean and relatively quiet and the ride is smooth. They come frequently enough. It is what you hope public transit can be.

The Metro is great and cheap and it goes to the seaside at Plentzia, maybe the Northern line could be extended? We did find it quite hot travelling the other day, but nothing like the Underground.

This is how a metro system should be. It is quick and efficient with comfortable and good air- qualty carriages. It is well worth buying a rechargeable Barik card (like the UK Oyster card) if making several journeys, as the fares are much lower than...More

Really efficient, cheap service which is often accessed by the now-famous, Norman Foster plastic 'snail' entrances. You can buy the equivalent of an 'oyster' card which can be used on the metro, trams, funicular or hanging bridge. You can access the city and, if you...More

We like small metro systems. This one is fast, cheap, clean and safe. The centre of Bilbao isn't very large and can easliy be walked across, but when your legs get tired, hit the metro. Day Pass under €5
