Vizcaya Bridge is an incredible sight to see, such a unique design. The bridge was built in the late 19th century to connect two towns on the opposite sides of the River Nervion, it was built to transport both people and cargo and to also allow ships to pass under. The bridge has a large gondola suspended from above which... More

to walk from one side of the "ria" to the other, while enjoying the breeze and watching the ship traffic from the port of bilbao. The old-school scenery can be seen from up there. there's a small park and several bar/cafes where to get some "bocatas" (snacks) and continue walking around town... Felt surreal.

Get the "Bari" Card at any tobacco shop - costs 3 euros. Charge it with another 10 or so. Half price trips on the Metro and buses. We went to Porugalete on the Metro for about 3 euros round trip, then rode across this funky aerial ferry for another 0.85 or so. Lovely lunch in downtown Getxo [get-cho] after a... More

Our three hour highlights of Bilbao tour from the cruise ship stopped here for 10 to 15 minutes to stretch our legs and see the "hanging" bridge. I was expecting some type of suspension bridge and was surprised to see the bridge section was actually hanging.

The trip down to the bridge is an experience in itself. If you can use your Bizkia transport card you save a lot of money. We didn't do the walk across due to windy weather and the €7 cost. Worth crossing both ways for the journey back up the hill via a set of escalators which the kids loved.

Best view of the city overlooking the river. Very amazing gondola takes you to the high footpath of the bridge. You can visit both banks of the Estuary. This is worth the visit.

We visited in May. From the cruise port it is a 35 to 40 minute walk to the bridge, past the marinas and many architecturally interesting mansions. There is a Tourist Information Kiosk close to the bridge (it opened at 11 o’clock on the Wednesday that we were there). The ticket machine at the bridge has no instructions in English.... More

The walk across the top of the bridge is not to be missed. It is not scary and the walk way is enclosed. Great views and a fascinating history to the bridge.

We arrived here by metro through Areeta stop , long walks , fresh air and lots of good food around. One of Bilbao hidden gem to explore for family fun day. I enjoyed the panoramic view for photography. Good value for passing your time and admiring the marina.
