Guggenheim Bilbao

Moving a little further along the coast, we stayed one night in Bilbao before heading south. Our main reason for adding this destination to our itinerary was the Guggenheim Museum.

We were lucky enough to be offered an upgrade on our room at Melia Bilbao, which was huge! This hotel was great as it was within walking distance to the museum and had an artistic feel to it, as well as lovely staff.

Although this was a short stay, we felt like we used the time well and had great fun exploring the wonderful exhibitions at the Guggenheim! We were intrigued by Yoko Ono’s interesting installation in which she called a phone in the exhibition every so often and you were required to answer it if you happened to be near by!
