Recommendations and tips

A visit to Bilbao could start with the Guggenheim Museum. This 20th-century architectural masterpiece, designed by Frank Gehry and adorned with 33,000 ultra-thin titanium plates, is one of three homes to the world’s top private collection of modern and contemporary art. Additionally, Bilbao offers other noteworthy attractions such as the Euskalduna Conference Centre by Norman Foster and metro stations designed by Isozaki and Pelli. The Zubizuri bridge, courtesy of Calatrava and La Alhóndiga built over an ancient wine cellar by Philippe Starck are among a few other awe-inspiring landmarks that demonstrate the city’s commitment to cutting-edge imagination. Not to mention its captivating old town, with its 700 years of history, boasting notable sites such as the Cathedral and Arriaga Theatre. Furthermore, one may enjoy a stroll through the renowned “Seven Streets”, taking in delightful shops and café offerings from traditional to trendy.

Proof that gastronomy is an art form in the Basque Country, Bilbao boasts some of the most Michelin Stars per capita in the world.

With one driver covered in the cost of the rental, you can add extra drivers for a daily fee. To save money, it is best to assign a single driver for the whole trip, as long it’s safe and reasonable to do so. Be sure to pump the fuel before leaving the car, to avoid high rates from rental agencies. Try to book as early as possible to secure more options and competitive rates. Bringing your own navigation system is recommended, if using your phone, consider Google Maps or similar apps. Once you have collected the car, take photos or video of any pre-existing damage then report any additional damage upon returning and you won’t be stuck with hefty fees later on.

Finding parking in Bilbao can be difficult, particularly in the city center. To make it easier, here are a few options to consider. Public garages, located throughout the city, usually provide 24/7 access with short and long-term parking spaces. Metered street parking is available on some streets in the center as well, but be aware that these fill up fast. The Blue Zone is another choice, with ticket machines or mobile apps for payment and a two-hour maximum time limit. Park-and-ride facilities are located on the outskirts of Bilbao for those coming from outside the city, which offer low rates plus public transportation into the center. Be sure to research local regulations and signs before parking your car since they can change according to the time and day of the week. Finally, if possible use public transportation or walk to your destination instead, driving in downtown can be challenging!

Getting around Bilbao can be tricky, so make sure you plan ahead. During rush hour and on weekends, traffic can be especially congested. When you’re driving, take care to be mindful of pedestrians, bicycles, and other vehicles as many of the streets are narrow. Finding parking spots can be difficult in the city center, so check regulations and fees thoroughly if you do find one. Alternatively, opt to use public transportation like buses, trams, or a metro system – especially if you’re unfamiliar with the area. Be aware of one-way street signage and follow the road rules plus respect any pedestrian-only zones. Above all, drive carefully and stay conscious of your surroundings while maneuvering Bilbao’s roads.
