Short Break in Bilbao
This small, bustling Basque port town has excellent restaurants, shopping and nightlife and is just a 2-hour flight from London. This small city combines cutting-edge architecture, a medieval quarter, and a picturesque setting on the Bay of Biscay, framed by green mountains. The highlight of a visit to Bilbao is, of course, the world-famous Peggy Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry. This iconic landmark is recognised as being one of the most admired works of contemporary architecture to date, and is reason enough to visit the city. In addition to Bilbao's modern architecture and art collections, the town is renowned for its fantastic gastronomy, with people travelling from afar to experience the sensational regional cuisine. We can arrange a three-night break in Bilbao, staying at the beautiful Gran Hotel Domine, including flights, transfers and tickets to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum.
Short Break in La Coruña, Galicia
La Coruña is a historic port city and the gateway to Galicia. Located on a rocky inslet, La Coruña is a city of contrasts - from the medieval old town and the world's only functioning Roman lighthouse, to sweeping grand squares and palatial buildings. One of the best ways to enjoy La Coruña, is by taking a stroll along the promenade which stretches the entire length of the sea-facing part of the city, before stopping for some fresh tapas in Calle Estrella, La Coruña's prime tapas territory and enjoying a glass of Ribeiro or Albariño, the region's most famous wines. Just a 2 hour flight from London Heathrow, La Coruña is also just 40 miles north of Santiago de Compotsela, meaning you can easily visit both cities in one long weekend. We can arrange a three-night stay at the Hesperiea Finesterre Hotel in La Coruña, and for those wishing to visit and Santiago de Compotsela, we can arrange a package that includes a stay at the Parador de Santiago de Compostela.
