Why visit Bilbao?
The Basque Country is known for its excellent food and wine, so once you’ve explored the many pintxos bars of the city, head out to the countryside to discover the Bizkaiko Txakolina wine region. Book a tour at the Bodega Berroja Winery, set in the rolling hills with soaring views across the forest.
You can also combine a city break to Bilbao with some beach hopping. Visit Ereaga Beach, which you can reach on the city’s Metro system, or go further afield to La Arena, a beach that’s popular with surfers and blessed with golden sand and nearby bars and restaurants for enjoying a sunset beer.
