Visit the stunning Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, a world-class attraction of modern art by famed architect Frank Gehry, and then enjoy the city on your own on this half-day excursion. The museum's curvaceous design of flowing titanium and limestone gives a nod to Bilbao's heritage with its suggestion of maritime shapes, sails and fish scales. Explore the changing modern art exhibits from its vast collection. Afterwards, you'll have free time to leisurely explore. Your guide will give you some information to explore the city during the free time. The Old Quarter is home to chic boutiques, perfume stores, cafes and restaurants. Stroll past the 14th century Gothic cathedral, the Arriaga Theater, the Plaza Nueva and the Bilbao Ria, which separates the old and the new city.
