Saint-Malo is an ancient French port. Within its old city walls you will find historic streets and alleys, a castle, and the Saint Vincent cathedral. The restaurants serve some of the freshest fish and fruits de mer you’ve ever eaten, straight from the fish market. The historic city centre has a romantic vibe that will have you wishing you could just stay a little while longer. Much of it was destroyed in World War II, but reconstructed in the original 18th century style.
Bilbao is a port in the northern tip of the Iberian peninsula, founded in the 14th century. Later on it became an important commercial hub for the Basque region. Today, Bilbao is a vigorous service city. Although Bilbao is not a major tourist destination, the iconic Bilbao Guggenheim museum is a must-see. Also take some time to walk around the city centre and visit the Exteberria Park. Around the city you can do many outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking and surfing.
