Full day shore excursion: Guggenheim, Old Part, mount Artxanda


Bilbao is a modern day version of the tale about the ugly duckling that became a beautiful swan. When you now see the modern and ground breaking architecture perfectly matched with the renovated historical buildings it's hard to believe that Bilbao just some 20 years ago was a rundown industrial town.

Come along for a scenic tour around the most beautiful sights in Bilbao while you learn about the town's history and enjoy the best of the famous local gastronomy having a delicious lunch at a traditional Basque gourmet restaurant or why not some pintxos, Basque tapas, in the Old Part

A chance to experience the beautiful buildings and sights of Bilbao while learning about its history and tasting the best of the famous Basque cuisine.

Also available for larger groups, please ask for pricing!

Itinerary

Pick up at the cruise ship terminal/hotel and then a 20 minute ride into town in a private air conditioned car or minibus. The tour includes great photo opportunities at the majestic Guggenheim Museum and we also take the centrically located Funicular up Artxanda Hill for breath-taking views of the city before having lunch at a traditional Basque restaurant.

Afterwards we set out to explore the historic old town with its picturesque narrow alleys and Gothic buildings. This excursion includes moderate walking with some steps around the Guggenheim Museum and within the pedestrianized old town where free time for shopping is also an option before going back to your ship. A scenic boat ride along the Nervión river could also be included.
