Bilbao, Spain-port

Bilbao straddles the Bilbao or Nervión River some 15 miles from the Cantabrian Seacoast. An industrial city, the metropolitan area ranks among Spain's most important commercial and financial centers. Proximity to the sea and early discovery of vast mineral deposits led to the development of the port. The modern city center is El Ensanche (literally "the expansion"). Possibly the newest source of great local pride is the remarkable Guggenheim Museum-Bilbao.

    It's a 90-minute scenic drive from Bilbao to San Sebastian, the Belle Epoque resort city and capital of the province of Guipuzcoa. Often referred to as the Pearl of the Sea, the city was made popular in 1886 by Queen Regent Maria Cristina and has been a favorite amongst Spanish aristocracy ever since. It is now a relaxed family resort city and plays host to the International Film Festival every September.

    Upon arrival, you will have a panoramic overview of the city, viewing such main sights as the Miramar Palace, the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, the Victoria Eugenia Theater, and the Hotel Maria Cristina. Following your panoramic tour, you will leave your coach behind and embark on a guided walking tour through the Old Quarter, where you will find an eclectic blend of shops, bars, restaurants and squares. Although the city has burnt to the ground twelve times in its history, one street not destroyed by the Fire of 1813, contains the oldest buildings, including the Church of San Vicente.

    Re-joining your coach for the leisurely drive back to Bilbao, you will make a final stop at the Monte Igeldo Viewpoint where you will have the chance to take photos. Enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the city, oyster-shaped Bay of La Concha, Mount Urgull, Mount Igueldo and the Isle of Santa Clara from this wonderful vantage point.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate walking, some of it over uneven surfaces and uphill. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns. Weather appropriate clothing; flat, comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunglasses are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
