Full description
Bilbao's "casco Viejo" is known as the "Seven Streets", and has always been the heart of the city. The area was rehabilitated after some floods in 1983, and combines the old pedestrian streets and traditional Basque shops with the most innovative bars and restaurants where you can taste the very best of Basque cuisine.

In its corners are the oldest churches and monuments of the city, including the Cathedral of Santiago, the Church of San Antón, the Mercado de la Ribera, the Municipal Library of Bidebarrieta and Plaza Nueva. Between the walls of this city lies a traditional wine from the area, titled "txakoli". You can discover how the wine is made, and experience the vineyards partnered with unbeatable views. You will be able to taste a txakoli wine whilst also tasting other typical products and observing the nearby mountains and San Mamé's arch.

To better understand the traditional way of making txakoli, you will board a 30-minute train to see villages inland of Lezama, where a minibus will pick you up to take you to a winery. The vineyards are visited and a tasting of different Basque Country wines is conducted under the direction of a txakolinero teacher to help you discover the culture of typical txakoli. You will also try traditionally prepared products such as txorizo, bread and cheese from the area. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to your accommodation in Bilbao.
