Along the banks of the Nervión, a tidal river, there’s a beautiful area of country waiting to be discovered by every traveller in northern Spain, the Basque Country. Bilbao is the capital, a small metropolis when compared against other city centres in Spain, such as Barcelona or Madrid. Bilbao has only about 1 million people.
In a Bilbao Airport car rental the city is just a 9 km drive away, and it’s good to add that this area is perfect for driving and touring around the majesty that nature has to offer.
With a milder climate than most other parts of the peninsula, Bilbao rarely falls below freezing in winter, or over 55ºC in summer. By far an inviting image is the rolling green hills of Bilbao, and often a welcome site when combined first with a trip to the dry plains in the south. A Bilbao car hire can meet you downtown, or perhaps you might enjoy the drive from one of Spain's other metropolitan areas.
The Guggenheim Museum, a recent addition is certainly one of the main attractions to Bilbao, considered by many a site definitely worth seeing. Perhaps the most celebrated building of the 1990's with its spectacular twisting titanium-clad modern art design.
But there are other museums in Bilbao that will sum up for the experience, head to the Museo de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Art), La Ria Maritime Museum, the Basque Museum, the Museo Taurino (Bullfighting Museum), the Museo de Reproducciones Artisticas (Museum of Artistic Reproductions, and the Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro (Museum of Sacred Art).
A myriad of different things to see and do in Bilbao are also here to appease all kinds of tastes. Here we can mention Bilbao's theatre: the Teatro Arriga, the Gothic churches, and the Zubuzuri bridge. A cheap Bilbao car rental will help you tour it all!
