It is all contained within a loop of the river, so you are not going to get lost! A great place for a flavoursome lunch or late night stroll around the many bars and restaurants.

The Casco Viejo (we call it the Old Helmet, its English translation) is the old part of town and a must. Six years ago we stayed there. This visit we walked there, but either way, it's lovely.

I had the chance to have go to Casco Viejo for Aste Nagusia, during what they call "Semana Grande" therefore there were many people around and a lot of stuff to do. Still, buildings there are very nice and it's plenty of places where to go in case you want to live a bit of Bilbao's nightlife, even in quiter moments of the year. It's absolutely worth a walk!
