Have you ever been to the beautiful region of Basque? No? Then you shouldn’t miss the chance to spend a memorable city break to Bilbao including the free entrance to the famous Guggenheim Museum. I have found a great hotel offer on travelbird.co.uk and I’ve taken the liberty of adding a flight from bravofly.co.uk for you. That’s how you get to Bilbao including your stay in a good 3 star hotel with breakfast, entrance to the Guggenheim Museum and flights from Manchester for a total of only £142 per person based on 2 people sharing. If you are 2 adults paying, a child of 0-2 years is allowed to stay for free with you in the room of the hotel. A child between 3 and 12 years may sleep with you for an extra of £23 per night. Makes this city break also very interesting for a family of 3 people.
The 3 star Hotel Conde Duque Bilbao (77% on TripAdvisor + Certificate of Excellence 2014) is centrally located in the old town of Bilbao and has an ideal location to start your city break. You will be in the heart of Bilbao within a short walking distance. Take the chance and explore the business and the entertainment district and everything else that Bilbao has to offer. Strengthen yourself with a delicious breakfast in the hotel and start with the area around the hotel for example. You will find many excellent bars and restaurants nearby and if you don’t want to eat out, you can also try the meals of the hotel’s restaurant and sip a drink at their cocktail bar.
A trip to Bilbao feels incomplete if you don’t visit probably the most important museum of Spain: the Guggenheim Museum. The hotel deal includes your entrance to the Guggenheim Museum and on top of that your hotel is very close to it. The exterior of the museum is already art, because the stunning architecture is considered to be one of the most spectacular buildings in the world. The Guggenheim is home to the excellent work of modern and contemporary art and is situated on the banks of the Nervion River. Get to know the largest city in Basque Country and experience some exciting local culture. Enjoy your break!
FYI: Please note that the price on travelbird.co.uk of £41 per person is for one night. I made a 2 nights (= 3 days) break. Feel free to change the dates by clicking on ‘Book Now’ on Travelbird. Don’t panic, you are not forced to make a booking when clicking on the button. You simply get to a calendar view to see all available dates and exact prices. If you want also a 2 nights stay like in my example, then don’t forget to choose an extra night for £33 per adult on Travelbird. There are also many selected dates from May until December available for the hotel. You can also change the flight details on bravofly.co.uk and choose a different date or a different airport of departure. Just have look at it and create your own Bilbao city break :)
