Parte Vieja can get crazy, so try to see it when it's quieter and when it's full of people. If you can go on a Friday at lunchtime or during the week, you'll get to appreciate it differently than on a weekend evening.

Your view of this area will depend a lot on your personality and interests. On the one hand it is cool, active and lively with myriad bars and restaurants, lots of tapas and noise at night. The daytime is a different story, with the area looking tired, run down, graffiti covered and urine smelling. There are plenty of good places... More

We visited during the world cup and the atmosphere was electric. So many people from so many different countries, don't chose one location. Do your best to enjoy the varied atmosphere, beverage and food choices and have fun! It would be difficult to see it, so just keep in mind it will always be a reason to return!

What a charming place the Old town of San Sebadtian is! We were not expecting it to be this beautiful. It is very easy to walk around and make a few stops at lunch to try the different tapas. If you visit San Sebastián, you won't be disappointed.

This is located in the center of old town in San Sebastian, wrong, this is the old town itself. All the local people and foreign travelers come here every night to enjoy the delicious pinxos. Basically the most restaurants start from the lunch time to midnight, and it is difficult for us to choose which is the good place or... More

An amazing network of streets laden with fabulous Pintxos bars and shops of all types. Pop into a bar, have a drink and select a delicious piece of Pintxos pay the bill and then move onto another bar and repeat until you can't eat and drink anymore.

The old quarter is my favourite part of San Sebastián. The narrow streets, with interesting shops & loads of great bars serving Pintxos a plenty. Great atmosphere both night & day.
