hi, we will be doing the 1-day long drive from Barcelona to stay 5 days in Bilbao arriving on a Tues.
Wed - Explore Bilbao, Guggenheim etc..
Thurs - Day trip to Vitoria-Gasteiz
Fri - Day trip to San Sebastian (15 Aug)
Sat - Relax & wander around Bilbao
Sun morning - Drive back to Barcelona
We are used to long drives in different parts of the world. We love museums, galleries, scenic outlooks, great local eateries, small medieval towns and sitting by the waterfront watching the world go by. Based on my itinerary above, I would appreciate feedback if I should plan things differently due to the long holiday weekend i.e will shops, cafes, attractions be closed ? Or is there a special activity nearby Bilbao that we should not miss during this national holiday period ?
Thanks for your advice.
