Admiring the views from above and visiting the old town with a guide helps you a lot to understand the history of Bilbao. Anne, our guide, was a sweetheart, she answered all our questions (and they were not few) and made us many recommendations to make the most of our trip. Highly recommended!

The route through the old town and the historical review of the evolution of the city of Bilbao from the views of the esplanade of the old casino at the end of the funicular climb is very interesting.
