There are plenty of activities to do and things to see once you get to Bilbao, from walking tours through the city landmarks, a cruise along the Nervión River, hopping on into the touristic bus or taking the funicular to Artxanda to get a fantastic panoramic view of the city. Some other “must do” activities include tasting the well-known “pintxos” in the old quarter, enjoying the wide cultural offer visiting the Fine Arts Museum, Azkuna Zentroa or the Arriaga Theatre. Escaping from the city and visiting the natural environment on the outskirts is definitely worthy as well, enjoying the beauty of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, the Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve or surfing the great waves of the Basque coast.
