San Sebastian travel guide

Donosti is fashionable. This fact is proved by the continuous increase in the number of tourists from all over the world that came to the city year after year in spite of the crisis. It is a very comfortable city to visit.

Touring in San Sebastian is very easy and you can easily walk around any corner of it. Even though it is true that you will need to drive a car or to use public transport in order to make excursions to nearby places, like Hondarribia, Zarauz, Getaria or Biarritz for example.

Whether you are visiting the city with family, friends or as a couple, you have many activities to do and things to see. Lovers of fine cuisine can not miss the opportunity to taste the best pintxos in the old town or stopping at the rest of the city’s bars, such as those found in the Gros district.

If you travel with children, one of the options is visiting the Aquarium which is one of the most internationally recognized and it has been recently remodeled.

I strongly recommend to everyone climbing Mt. Igueldo on their famous funicular and enjoying the best views of the city, although it is something special in particular to the people who is travelling as a couple.

As a result of this tourist demand that the city suffers, sometimes, especially in summer, it is really difficult to find cheap accommodation.

It is something that has become popular and the truth is that they work very well.

The decision to choose one option or another will depend on what you are looking for in your accommodation. There are apartments well equipped for families but in a hotel you will have the advantage of having practically everything done by others. Both options are valid and you will have to determine what you are looking for when staying in a tourist destination like this
