The old streets are nice, the Mercado de la Robera is very nice, but the stores sell mostly tourist trinkets. Mores the pity as this could be a delightful place to browse in real stores selling things that are not made in China.

We visited on our last afternoon, big mistake we didn't allow enough time! You can spend a day here easily just wandering the picturesque streets, shopping, pinchos and drinks galore! We would like to return to Bilbao for a weekend to spend more time here.

As in most old town, you could spend some time wandering around, checking out little stores, stopping by for a refreshment, admiring old structures. As the night descends, the shops close, and the crowd comes for some drinks and snacks. THen the place really livens...More

We enjoy the pintxos in the old city. The tourists Bus was very helpful since you have the opportunity to see the city and then visit the places that you liked the most Beautiful churches and great people.

The old part of Bilbao with a lot of shops and interesting buildings to photograph and experience. A very good array of boutiques of all kinds, from chocolate to cheese to a lot of pintxos bars and coffee shops. Everyone and I want to stress...More

I have been too a lot of Casco Viejos throughout Spain. This was by far the most beautiful one with a lot of history and charm.

Likely to be cold and wet. Low around 6-8 deg C but that's warmer than UK.

Most probably rainy, cool weather but not freezing. Could be foggy as well.
