More than nice

Bilbao is a nice city by the ocean north of Spain. In fact the last station on the metro will take you to the seaside neighbourhood. It also has a river with several beautiful futuristic bridges crossing it. The Guggenheim museum is built by the river too. Unlike the one they built later on in Los Angeles, the one in Bilbao is better located giving the viewer more space to contemplate the building from a distance. The town also has a cute historic section with streets made of stone. The old section is under a tall hill. There is an elevator that takes you to the top of it. The view from up there is nice, as you can see in one of the pictures. Free wifi internet in the McDonalds paid by the municipality! Very well communicated. The airport has cheap flights by airlines such as EasyJet. Other nearby attractive towns like San Sebastian and Biarritz (France) also have airports with affordable flights. In the same trip I also visited Bayonne in France only two hours drive away.
