Day trips from Pamplona

We'd like to visit Bilbao, Guernica and San Sebastian. Should we have a car waiting at the airport (Pamplona) or just rent in town for the days of side trips? Looks like Bilbao and Guernica could be one day and San Sebastian another day.

To visit San Sebastian, you could take a bus. The company Alsa offers about 9 direct buses daily. You can check it at:

alsa.es/portal/…

For visiting Bilbao and Guernica, it would be much easier with a rental car. Although doing both in one day, it is going to be pretty tight even like that...

Since you are staying in Pamplona, another place close by that I would recommend you to visit would be Olite and its castle. Here you find some pictures and information:

And a little further south is a desert (not many in Europe), definitely worth a visit: euskoguide.com/places-basque-country/interio…

I would prefer to stay in San Sebastian than Pamplona.

Yes, San Sebastian is a good one. By bus tickets at counter. No online

Does this mean that I could travel in and out of San Sebastian by bus and not have to use a car to travel to and from Pamplona?
