Admirar las vistas desde la altura y visitar el casco antiguo de la ciudad con guia te ayuda muchísimo a entender la historia de Bilbao. Anne, nuestra guía, fue un amor, contestó a todas nuestras preguntas (y no fueron pocas) y nos hizo muchas recomendaciones para aprovechar mejor nuestro viaje. Muy recomendable!

Muy interesante la ruta por el casco antiguo y el repaso histórico de la evolución de la ciudad de Bilbao desde las vistas de la explanada del antiguo casino al final de la subida del funicular
