Bilbao itinerary

Hi we are flying to Bilbao in August for 9 nights. Any suggestions for travel round the area. Thinking 2 nights in Bilbao, then onto San Sebastián for 2 nights and next 2 nights in Biarritz. Would recommend suggestions for other 3 nights.

You may want to visit Santander too. The place with the most sights is Bilbao, so I would spend 3 days there.

I would advise that you spend 3 or 4 nights in San Sebastian. I too will be in San Sebastian in August for La Semana Grande for 7 nights. 2 nights in Bilbao is plenty. I first visited San Sebastian 2 years ago. This will now be my 4th visit to the city.

Depends on your budget really.

It may be hard to find accomodation in August in San Sebastian at such short notice.

I always stay in Pension La Perla in the Cental district which is very convenient & close to the Old Town

Look at the trip advisor reviews which are very complimentary.

You are not visiting the Rioja wine region? Full of historical places, as well as beautiful wineries...
