Definitely worth going to see. We didn't cross it but will do after reading these reviews. We also explored the area surrounding the bridge and found it interesting and steeped in traditional Basque culture

I took elevator up to the bridge and then walked across the bridge. I also saw people taking boat shuttle across the river. With Bilbao card, you can do both. It was interesting walking across the oldest suspended bridge. I also enjoyed leisurely stroll from one city to next crossing the bridge.

This type of bridges are rare, there are only a few left. So if possible try to visit it. It is a very special way of transport.

Although the Viscaya Bridge is not in the centre of Bilbao, it is worth taking the bus and get of to take a 'ride' over the river. It really feels like an attraction, when you are standing on the deck and this is moving from one side to the other through the air!

Worth an hour or so to get the breathtaking views across Bilbao with huge ships passing underneath. Some interesting history of the placards on the walkway. 7 euros to go up the lift, cross the walkway, and come back on the gondola. Well worth it.

It2s amazing to see the Vizcaya Bridge. First of all it was built in 1893 and still working. In the first instance you can abstain to get on but than you forget this feeling. I was surprised when I saw the shuttle carry cars. Vizcaya Bridge one of the "must see" place in Bilbao.

Took the subway to Portugalete to see the bridge and found a lovely town in the midst of a traditional celebration - folk singers and an open air market.

I have never seen this kind of bridge in my life. It´s interesting how it works. It´s very cheap to go from one side to the other one.

This bridge is one of only a handful of it's kind in the world. We paid for the full ticket €7 per person. The bridge had a gondola suspended on steel wires which is used to transport both cars and people across the river. The ticket allows you to cross on the gondola then take a lift to the walkway...

Great for pictures and walking around. The history of the bridge is very interesting. The information should also be in English for the English speakers who go without a guide.
