Get picked up from your Bilbao hotel and head toward San Sebastián—the resort town named European Capital of Culture in 2016. After arriving in the city, tour San Sebastián's Old Town. Visit the Plaza de la Constitution and glimpse the iconic Church of San Vincente. Then, venture past the Museo San Telmo—a 16th-century Dominican convent that houses the Museum of Basque Society and Citizenship.

Following your invigorating excursion, allow your guide to suggest a sumptuous spot for lunch at your own expense. Sample one of San Sebastián's acclaimed eating establishments before enjoying a bit of free time to wander the city streets, photographing the landmarks that call to you.

Complete your tour with a ride on the Monte Igueldo funicular railway. Once you've crested the summit, delight in sweeping views of the Bay of Biscay and Spain's mountainous Basque Country. Then, descend from the charming hilltop, rejoicing in the sights for a few final moments before bidding San Sebastián farewell.
