San Mames Stadium is bang in the centre of the city so you can't miss it. John Honney is right about the Guggenheim, it's more about the building itself than the contents. They are currently upgrading the bus station and the like in preparation for the euros in June, the airport bus runs every 15 minutes I think and takes about 20/25 mins. That apart, the rest is OK without being exceptional.
Really liked Bilbao. You really can’t go wrong on the pinxto front - even the places that look unpromising knock out great food. Old town is obviously the most atmospheric area, lots of good little pinxto bars. Agree about the Guggenheim - great building, but unless you’re someone who loves visiting galleries, I’m not sure I’d pay to go in; a pretty uninspiring collection when I visited. Nice people, top food and the love for Athletic is everywhere. You’ll have a great time.
Got an old mate long time no see married a Basque girl and they live in mountainous rural village outside San Sebastian not Urban polluted industrial Bilbao. I think I'll take your advice Mel Norfolt and visit them. Time is short..hear me man.. pinchos and beer yum-yum
