Itinerary

After a one hour drive from San Sebastian, we will arrive to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. This unique museum built on a 32,500 square meter site in the center of the city is an extraordinary combination of interconnecting shapes. The impressive limestone blocks contrast with curved architectural forms covered in titanium, and the glass curtain walling provides the building with the light and transparency it needs. The permanent collection includes basically works of art of the most prominent artists of the second half of the 20th century, which is supplemented by exhibits lent by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and special programmes sponsored by the Foundation. Explore the museum by yourself an audio guide is included in the ticket price

Afterward continuing with our tour we will head to Zumaia to admire “the flysch”, one of the most prominent geological outcrops on the planet. Finally and taking a scenic coastal road we will stop in the charming village of Getaria for lunch. Despite being very small it has a well-deserved reputation for its grilled fish restaurants, the Txakoli wine and its two illustrious sons: the famous fashion designer Cristobal Balenciaga, and Juan Sebastián Elcano, the first man to circumnavigate the earth. If you are a fashion lover, visiting the Balenciaga Museum could be interesting. Finally to come back we will take again the coastal road and we will drive through Zarautz, a resort town with a long beach and promenade where the pioneers of surfing in the Basque Country first emerged here in the sixties.
