This once industrial city is now one of the most stylish cities in northern Spain.

On the culinary front, Bilbao is a true voyage of discovery, where traditional Basque cuisine with its innovative pintxos and refined dishes will delight any foodie. In short, during this city trip to Bilbao you will be surprised from all angles.

Day 1: Arrival in Bilbao

You'll arrive in Bilbao and transfer to your hotel. On the way you will cross the Puente de Vizcaya, the oldest suspension bridge in the world still in use. A floating structure allows both vehicles and passengers to pass between Portugalete and Getxo, without hindering navigation. From the bridge, accessible by elevator, you have a magnificent view. After your check-in, enjoy an afternoon of sunbathing or a sporting activity such as a sailing trip, canoe trip or go surfing. The options are endless on the coast.

Day 2: The historic center and the Guggenheim Museum

The original city was formed by the seven streets that form the center of the old quarter. On the right bank of the Nervión River, you will discover the historic center full of beautiful buildings and monuments. Your next stop is Spain's largest indoor market, La Ribera. In fact, with its three floors, it is the largest covered market in Europe. It is the perfect place to buy fresh produce such as meat, fish, vegetables and fruits. After lunch, Bilbao's most famous museum is on the schedule, the Guggenheim Museum. A museum of modern and experimental art, it is the crowd pleaser in Bilbao. The building is a work of art in itself, but a visit to the art collection inside is also worthwhile.

Day 3: Ensanche, River Nervion and Pintxos
