Get to the old town for a wonderful feeling of Spain. Wonderful ice cream. Street layout and signposting is a bit awkward to navigate, but well worth the effort.

We had good weather when we visited. There is lots to see but it’s not much fiun to drive here so we parked up at the hotel and walked around. Most of the main places are in the centre and there is a lovely big park if you are seeking a bit of shade.

Bilbao is a beautiful city. We arrived at the port near the town of Getxo on a cruise ship. Either the Port or the City of Bilbao provided a Free Shuttle to take passengers to the City Centre of Bilbao, an extremely good deed because the Shuttle was almost half an hour ride. There are lots of attractions in this beautiful city and our time was too limited. We only had time to walk to the Guggenheim Museum and the Lookout of Artxandra by taking a funicular. Definitely worth another visit.

We visited Bilbao during the European Rugby finals, this city was as good as, and better, than others that have hosted the finals in recent years, we’ve been to the last 9. It’s a beautiful city even when it’s full of rugby fans, the locals are friendly and helpful, getting around on public transport is cheap and easy -especially with a birak card. There are many parks, bars offer a range of tapas at extremely low prices, the city manages to blend old and new successfully. The bridges along the river are amazing as is the walk. A beautiful city. Which I hope to return to.

If you´re at least somewhat interested in the arcitecture of beautiful cities Bilbao should absolutely be one of the top items on your bucket list. The city is loaded with spectacular structures and there is almost everywhere something to cast an eye on. Among them of course the Guggenheim museum - a must to see, at least from the outside (the inside is less interesting).

Another good thing is that Bilbao is loaded with nice pintxos bars!!!
