    • Using the Metro or Bus

      Bilbao Jun 12, 2015 at 2:46 AM

      We are going to be in Bilbao on a cruise ship in September, we have decided that we would like to catch public transport from the ship to Bilbao. Sightseeing to include Guggenheim Museum, Puente de Calatrav, a trip up the hill on the Funicular, Old Town and then on our return to the ship go to see the Vizcaya Bridge. Our ship will be in port on a Saturday 8am - 6pm do you think the above itinerary is easily doable? If we were to use the metro could we get one ticket that we could use for on/off during the day or maybe many of the places are close together? Any advise on cost of a ticket and best way to do this (or anything else we should not miss) appreciated :). This is our first visit to Spain. Is the ticket interchangeable for use on bus, metro and funicular or would we need separate tickets?

    • Bus from San Sebastian to Bayonne, France

      San Sebastián May 29, 2015 at 4:40 PM

      We would like to travel by bus from San Sebastian to Bayonne where we will stay one night before taking a train to Toulouse.  Does anyone know the bus schedule and if you have to buy a ticket beforehand?  I have read that there is not a real bus station in San Sebastian but bus parking spots and called Amara.   Also, do these buses accommodate luggage?

      Or would it be easier to take a train?

    • San Sebastian probable Travel itinerary

      I'm in process to consolidate my travel itineraries. First to come is San Sebastian.
      I'll be travelling to San Sebastian for 3 nights and 2 day. Following is the travel itinerary I'm looking forward to:

      Day 1: Visit Bilabao - Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
      Day 2 - Visit San Sebastian old town and La Concha beach, visit Tapas bars.

      This looked to a very basic itinerary. Can some one provide me places to visit ? or may be an itinerary ?
      Also kindly provide best tapas bars to visit and enjoy basque flavours.

    • Basque Country Information Needed-All Advice Greatly Appreciated

      Basque Country Jul 26, 2014 at 7:37 AM

      My wife and I are independent, budget, travelers with a great deal of international travel experience. We are planning on visiting the Basque country for the first time and want to do it as econmically and efficiently as possible. We have a week - ten or more days.

      We'll be coming from Paris (flyng into Bilbao) and will be relying solely on public transportation once we arrive. We'll be heading to south of France (flying out probably from Montpellier) after we visit the area.

      We're not sure the best way to organize ourselves and what to see (besides San Sebastian and Bilbao). We don't need to run around if we are able to find a good base to get a feel of the area and/or for day trips.

      Our biggest challenge is finding a reasonably priced, simple yet comfortable accomodaton. We know San Sebastian is popular during the summer season but we are rather knocked out by the sky high prices.

      Any help greatly appreciated.

      It is my birthday when I´m in Casco Viejo and I would like to find a good restaurant for the evening. However my husband is slightly deaf and finds it difficult to hear in noisy bars and restaurants. We love Basque cuisine, not tourist food and we also appreciate value for money...not nuevo cuisine with tiny portions. We would have eaten pintxos during the day, so we are looking for something more substantial at night.
