Begin your day by going directly to the town of Hernani from your hotel in the center of Bilbao.

Then, enjoy a free 1-hour visit to the Chillida-Leku Museum, and admire the artist's works in the gardens that surround them.

Later, move on to Astigarraga, a town famous for its Basque cider tradition. Take a guided tour of the Cider Museum to discover the culture of cider, a hallmark of the Basques. Conduct a tasting through the fun Txotx rite, where the cider is served directly from the kupela or barrel. Next, savor a traditional cider house menu for lunch at a famous cider house.

After lunch, continue to San Sebastian, the "Pearl of the Cantabric." Explore the Old Town on a guided tour, and enjoy some free time for shopping. Marvel at a magnificent panoramic view from Mount Igeldo (ascent included), and take some photographs before returning to Bilbao mid-afternoon.
