Bilbao, Spain Overview

The city of Bilbao, hemmed in by massive green hills on three sides and a river valley to the north, sprawls itself out across the remaining open spaces in an ungainly and awkward mess. Its 14th-century historic district and more modern commercial centre hug the banks of the Nervion River, while its working class suburbs, the rusting shipbuilding and steel factories, the fish canning plants and assorted relics of its more lucrative industrial past stretch out along the widening river and up into the rugged hills.

Beautiful city. Great food and interesting sights. Went to the Guggenheim Museum. Wish we had more time. Plan to go back.

Loved, loved, loved this port. Took a tour with Spain Day Tours who took us to some viewpoints and also a tour of the historical areas. We had a wonderful lunch of tapas and then visited the Guggenheim. Our guide was Gaetano. He was great!

Lovely city. We took the shuttl from the port into the city centre. It was an easy walk from there to the Guggenheim, to which entry was free to as it was some sort of anniversary for them. We have two small kids so it wasn’t great for them but the art was spectacular. We then took an open top bus ride in glorious sunshine around the main sights of the city. We could’ve spent more time in the city but the kids were tired. Overall great place to visit. The tourist information centre were very helpful aswell. Located just outside the Guggenheim.
