Fishing villages, marvelous panoramic views, Basque History and Culture
I'll meet you at the Cruise ship terminal, my minivan has A/C and electric sliding doors; and can seat up to 6 passengers.
After driving by the famous Pont de Biscaye" - a beautiful suspension bridge;
We'll drive 30 minutes along the Northern coast of Spain. We'll visit the spectacular San Juan de Gaztelugatxe island - Game of thrones was filmed here. . .
Next we'll stop for lunch in the lovely harbor in the fishing village of Bermeo.
Our last stop for the day will be to visit Gernika. This former capital of the Basque Country is famous because of the tragical bombing campaign inflicted by the Nazi warplanes - that destroyed the whole town during the Spanish civil war. Picasso made his famous painting: Guernika to mark this tragedy.
From here we'll return to Bilbao. You may choose to have me drop you off in the center of Bilbao - near the Guggenheim museum if you like - or we can return directly to the ship.
