Bilbao Travel Information

Bilbao is a dynamic and interesting place. Pay a visit to the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, Norman Foster's underground or see the famous towers designed by the architects Arata Isozake and Cesa Pelli before you have even left the airport!

If you enjoy shopping you will love it here. From cakes and pastries to antiques to fashion there are several shopping centres to choose from or visit The Old Quarter for more traditional fares.

To make it even easier the City Council offer tourists the Bilbao Card which lets you use public transport at low fares and also gives you discounts at various museums, shows, restaurants etc.

Eating well here is not difficult as Bilbao has a great reputation for gastronomy. There are many top notch restaurants for you to choose from. Bilbao is the capital of cod. The local custom is 'chiqueteo' which is having pintxos with a drink in a bar before sitting down to enjoy your meal.
