Bilbao airport is just 10 km from the city centre. The city of Bilbao is in fact split into two halves and then divided into eight districts. It is the largest city in the Basque Country and is now undergoing a radical urban renewal.

Although there are many historical buildings lost to the past and recent redevelopments The Casco Viejo, or Old Quarter still contains what is left of the city's 700-year heritage, this is an interesting area for discovering medieval Bilbao. Its cobbled streets, cantons, charming squares and corners bear witness to the intense commercial and port life that made the city grow and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in this area too.

The surrounding Basque countryside is naturally beautiful and here there are many smaller villages to explore.
