Start the day with a guided tour of Bilbao and visit the Famous Guggenheim museum.
The Guggenheim Bilbao Museum was created by the American architect Frank O. Gehry in order to revitalize the city. Opened in 1997, the building quickly became a major tourist attraction thanks to its innovative design architecture made of a blend of stone and glass, water and titanium. This is a modern and contemporary art museum, it is one of the five museums of Solomon R. Guggenheim’s society.
Visit of Casa Balanciaga - Getaria:
Balenciaga museum was created in the designer's native city, the city of Getaria. It is located in the park Aldabar and composed of two main buildings: Aldabar palace from the nineteenth century which displays temporary exhibitions and a building housing six exhibition rooms renovated after 10 years of work. This is the first museum in the world dedicated exclusively to a fashion designer.
Walking tour of San Sebastian:
The Kings and Queens of Spain chose San Sebastian as the royal seaside resort just as Napoleon III and the Empress Eugenie chose Biarritz. Today San Sebastian remains a brilliant and seductive city, a cultural hub of the Basque Country. No tour of San Sebastian would be complete without a visit of the city's "old quarter". Here, on the narrow pedestrian streets are located the famous "tapas" bars. Over one hundred such establishments open daily, their counters overflowing with delicious local appetizers or "tapas".
