The historic beauty of Bilbao is yours to discover during a visit to Getxo, where you will ride above the Hanging Bridge and tour the Old Quarter. Departing from the pier, you will enjoy a short drive to Getxo – an elegant residential town nestled on the bank of the Nervión River featuring large, English-style homes. 

Upon arrival, you will take a panoramic drive around the city and continue on to the nearby Hanging Bridge, or Bizkaia Bridge. The bridge joins the riverbanks at Portugalete and Las Arenas, allowing for free-flowing maritime traffic. Reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower due to its iron structure, this over 100 year-old masterpiece of engineering is now the oldest transporter bridge in the world. 

Next, you will re-board your coach for a drive to the heart of Bilbao, followed by a 1-hour guided walking tour through the historic Old Quarter. As you stroll along the narrow streets lined with Renaissance, Baroque and Modernist buildings, your guide will point out sites that include the Cathedral of Santiago, a Gothic church built at the end of the 14th century, the Church of San Anton and Plaza Nueva.

Your visit will conclude with a drive up Artxanda Hill for spectacular views of the city and the Guggenheim Museum.
